The dramatic transformation will see a swathe of new buildings and development projects in the city centre - and here's what it is going to look like.

Located at the corner of Rockingham Street and Wellington Street, this new residential development will include more than 340 high quality homes.
The building colloquially known as the Pepper Pot located in between Pinstone Street, Cambridge Street and Charles Street will be transformed to create a completely unique new office building with retail space.
