Mecone was contracted by Sydney Metro to provide advice on Sydney Metro’s role in city shaping. City shaping refers to the ability of a project to affect the land use and development around it. Mecone investigated the existing demographics and land uses along the Sydney Metro corridor and provided analyses on how land use and demographies were likely to change as a result of the Sydney Metro project.

Mecone was subsequently engaged again to provide city shaping analyses in relation to the proposed extension of Sydney Metro to Liverpool.

Scope of Works

Mecone’s methodology included:

  • Analysis of the city shaping influence of Sydney Metro, including implications to destinations/strategic centres along the route and its sphere of influence;
  • Statistical and spatial modelling of the opportunity Sydney Metro provides in linking people to greater employment, education, shopping and recreational choices; and
  • Preparation of mapping, graphics, presentation and reports with the findings of the analyses.
