The Crescent Plaza wins prestigous award
Published Tuesday, 7th November 2017
The Crescent Plaza in the Fairfield City Centre has won first place in the prestigious LNA Master Landscapers Association Awards for its stunning design and practical use of urban space.
The gold medal went to the Crescent Plaza in the Commercial and Civil Construction ($750,000 to $1.5 million) category.
Mayor of Fairfield City Frank Carbone said the award recognised the effort and creativity of the design team, but also recognised Council’s investment in the community.
“The Crescent Plaza celebrates the diversity and rich cultural heritage of our City,” Mayor Carbone said.
“It provides a contemporary and welcome space for a wide range of users including parents and children, shoppers, local businesses, workers and visitors.
“In December last year, Council opened the modern urban plaza in the Fairfield City Centre in response to a lack of open space in this busy Centre, particularly near the Fairfield Station transport interchange.
“It’s a great space for the community to relax and socialise. You can contemplate our rich indigenous, colonial and multicultural history through the fascinating timeline wall that tells the story of the people, the places and how things have changed in Fairfield City.
“The Crescent Plaza also features substantial shade tree plantings and landscaped areas, safety and ambient lighting, sitting platforms, sculptured metal seating and pavements, a children’s play-sculpture area, a heritage timeline artwork, an LED visual media screen and public Wi-Fi.
“The Crescent Plaza is a great place to meet friends, or sit and relax or attend the many community events hosted there.
“In a busy bustling City Centre like Fairfield, Council recognises that having quality urban spaces for people to take time out is important.”
