Jansons Property is now bringing the area, which is within the City’s World Heritage Site, back to life with a mixed use development, scheduled for completion in 2013. It has been a long and difficult process to come up with a plan for the area that solves the many different requirements of interested parties, but one has finally been approved. Please keep checking back on this website for updates on the progress of this major redevelopment.
