Reshaping urban communities
As our city populations expand and inner city living increases, urban regeneration projects are reshaping communities. Breathing new life into underused and ageing precincts is exciting and the King & Wood Mallesons team continues to advise on the best way forward for these projects.
Having acted for private and public sector clients in urban regeneration projects, we have a deep understanding of the needs of different project participants and the experience to navigate the issues that often accompany complex and long term projects. These include tenure, planning, construction, energy and environmental law, commercial, tax, capital partnering and financing.
We also help you to negotiate with government agencies for permission and concessions, and secure other approvals from regulatory authorities.
