COMING IN 2020… LANE COVE’S INNOVATIVE NEW SPACE!
Rosenthal Project is creating a new community precinct in the heart of Lane
After inviting the community to choose a name for 2018,
Lane Cove Council is pleased to announce the name of the new precinct will be The Canopy.
Canopy will be home to a new park
with village green and children’s playground, performance stage, restaurant
precinct, Coles and Aldi supermarkets and a 500-space underground car park, and
is set to be completed in mid-2020.
Formerly the home to the
Rosenthal Avenue car park, the site is centrally located close to the town
centre, post office and existing restaurant and shopping precinct.
From 2 May until 5 June 2018
the community were asked for suggestions for the name - Council
received 250 suggestions!
Council created a shortlist of
six names in August 2018, based on the Place Brand values for the project
- A place that is Nurturing, Engaging, and Productive. Council also had
regard to key naming best practice guidelines, that it be unique, easy to
pronounce, spell and write.
The community were then asked
to rank via an online survey the shortlist in order of their preference.
Votes closed on 25 September
2018, with over 600 responses.
“The Canopy” was ultimately
chosen as best representing the brand values, it is unique and was also
the most popular name.
Construction of the project
commenced In September 2017, and is on track for completion by mid 2020.
