Darwin Waterfront

A little urban design wander of Darwin waterfront (designed by Hassell). I saw it on a very slow morning so hard to tell if it has the critical mass to be a successful buzzing place, but certainly some typical things like higher density residential, mixed use building and trying to activate ground floors with cafes.   It feels disconnected a bit, much like a lot of the water edges but I thought the elevated walkway and integrated 5 storey lift worked well to get you from the CBD street level and address the change in heights.
