© 2018 selection and editorial matter, Kristian Ruming; individual chapters, the contributors. Central Park, also known as Frasers Broadway, is an iconic precinct development in Sydney, Australia. It forms a new gateway to Sydney’s central business district (CBD) and demonstrates how sustainability can be incorporated into the regeneration of our cities, in this case through the revitalisation of a former urban industrial site (Figure 10.1). Its signature green walls provide an immediate statement to residents, workers and visitors that the site aims to embody the principles of sustainability, and go further, towards urban regeneration. This $2 billion staged development was conceived in 2006 and has won a number of awards and accolades (Central Park 2017a). It opened at the end of 2013 and will be completed by the end of 2018.
