Multilayered urban regeneration framework with legacy projects,
related to preparation for the 2010 Soccer World Cup. Appointed
by the City to prepare an urban design framework and implement
the projects. The study area consists of 640ha of inner-city
residential and industrial areas.
The framework aimed to build new partnerships, promote the
development of affordable housing, increase densities and
regenerate the education and sports precincts.
The project implementation, carried out in association with
MMA architects and NLA landscape architects, includes a network
of “green corridors” - landscaped, pedestrian-oriented routes
- connecting the main public spaces and facilities such as
the Ellis Park Stadium, new Bus Rapid Transport stations (BRT),
railway stations and taxi ranks. The key interventions are
the Ellis Park Central Square connecting the two stadiums
and providing new public facilities, the refurbishment of
heritage buildings and the Transport Square providing new
taxi facilities and improving access to the railway station.
