The redevelopment of Maclean Civic Hall is phase 1 of the wider River Street Community Precinct Revitalization. It aims to honor Maclean’s heritage while showcasing the vitality of the Clarence River. The design creates a safe, multifunctional space with flexible layouts suited for various users and frames river views. It includes a new 300-seat auditorium, meeting rooms, amenities, a basement carpark, multifunction room, kitchen/bar, and forecourt/amphitheatre. The auditorium and amphitheatre spaces enhance community connection and public space activation. This project involves multiple disciplines and extensive stakeholder consultations, from con-cept design to construction services, and currently in the works of pre-construction documentation.
