Japanese Urban Renaissance Agency visit the Lakes

Western Sydney Lakes
August 5, 2023

Our CEO, Jacqueline Vozzo welcomed the Japanese Urban Renaissance Agency out to the Lakes yesterday where they were walked through the site and our vision for the future.

Urban Renaissance Agency is a semi-governmental organisation that works to address urban and housing agendas in Japan. Their fundamental mission is to support the design and realisation of cities "where people can shine" and they work with projects across the globe to help them achieve this.

Segio Kanegae, Naoki James Kuroda, along with Stuart Ayres, were truly impressed with our vision for the Lakes and the opportunities it could deliver for the people of Western Sydney and beyond, on a global scale - they see the potential and the possibility here.

It was a pleasure to have them on site today to strengthen ties between Western Sydney and Japanese business and investment opportunities.
