In many urban areas, a city’s CBD is usually typified by the concentration of retail and office buildings. The CBD usually has an urban density higher than the surrounding districts, and is often the location of the tallest buildings in the city and the most sought after for property development.
Building a World Class CBD is becoming increasingly essential for the creation of an attractive and sustainable environment that promotes economic vitality, social equity and environmental quality. CBDs usually have very small resident populations however, in larger cities the CBD populations are increasing as younger professional and business workers move closer to their work places.
Australia is one of the most urbanised countries in the world and these cities have high-rise CBDs that aid in forming an iconic image of Australia. In the case of Melbourne CBD it has recently been voted as one of the most liveable cities. The inner suburbs and the major central business district (CBD) of Greater Melbourne's metropolitan area, has become a major financial centre in Australia and the Asia-Pacific region. The City Centre is home to five of the six tallest buildings in Australia. In recent times, it has been placed alongside New York City and Berlin as one of the world's great street art meccas, and designated a "City of Literature" by UNESCO in its Creative Cities Network.
World Class CBD is specifically designed to meet all building industry practitioners' demands on CBD infrastructure, planning, urbanising. This conference will highlight, through practical case studies and panels, the importance to the building and real estate sector (be it upcoming or existing buildings), the adoption of green initiatives and energy efficiency to remain competitive and at the same time sustainable. It will offer participants insights on state-of-the-art techniques from the vast experiences of our global speaker line-up.
