Cultural, Creative, Heritage & Historic Precincts

Creative clusters underpin the success of emerging global cities

​​​​​​​​​​Innovative creative clusters, vibrant heritage precincts and rejuvenated ancient towns are the centrepieces of many urban development strategies across Asia Pacific. But success requires more than the preservation of old buildings or the encouragement of groups of artists.

Through our involvement in development strategies across the region, JLL has a keen understanding of what makes such projects successful and economically viable. This includes:

  • The correct combination of uses and activities
  • Financial and tenure arrangements
  • Active promotion and events
  • Appreciation of the needs and expectations of the community, occupiers and visitors
  • Knowledge of construction and building adaptation
  • Sensitivity and understanding of historical and cultural heritage

Drawing on our global and domestic experience, we advise on creative industry precincts, adaptive reuse of heritage buildings and the revitalisation of historic districts. Some of the high profile projects we have advised on include:

  • Historical Preservation Area Development Strategies in Wuhan and Beijing in China
  • Hong Kong’s West Kowloon Cultural District
  • Chengdu’s cultural and creative industry development study
  • Adaptive re-use studies for heritage buildings in Sydney, Australia
  • Heritage and cultural regeneration strategy for Dubai Creek in the UAE
