2019 Australian Urban Design Awards: Winner of Built Projects – City and Regional Scale

Maitland Levee and Riverlink Building by McGregor Coxall and Chrofi

Jury citation

This project has successfully regenerated the high street of Maitland, New South Wales, reconnecting the city centre to the Hunter River and creating a striking community focal point. These achievements make it an exemplar in regional urban design and renewal in Australia.

The project respects the city’s local heritage while creating a contemporary “complete street” that can be modified as land uses change. Vehicles have been carefully reintroduced to help activate the street. The Riverlink Building is a landmark element of the project that introduces a “portal” between the street and the river.

The ultimate aim of this project is to encourage new economic opportunities and the design provides a strong basis for the achievement of this objective.

Location: Maitland (NSW)
