About this episode

As part of Ashurst’s ‘Reimagining Real Estate’ campaign, our Practice Group Head Richard Vernon speaks with Selina Mason, Director of Masterplanning at Lendlease, and Bek Seeley, Managing Director for Development in Europe at Lendlease. In a widespread discussion, the trio discuss the mystery around placemaking, what do we mean by 'placemaking' and how we know it has been achieved.

During the conversation, Bek and Selina each share a scheme where Lendlease have made a 'place' and the criteria they used to measure both the benefits to Lendlease and others.

The trio also discuss the importance of thinking through, planning and maintaining your investment, why you should always pay attention to the fabric of the place and the evolvement of placemaking to meet the Net Zero agenda.
