Lendlease commits to a surprising and delightful partnership
Perth, 16 July 2018;

Australian property and construction business Lendlease has formalised a three-year partnership with new not-for-profit Activate Perth.
Activate Perth aims to bring residents, businesses and property owners together to champion new ideas, create new momentum and drive more vibrancy, life and action in our city.
Activate Perth Chair Di Bain said the group was proud to announce Lendlease as the organisations Founding Partner.
“The Lendlease vision is to create the best places; ones that inspire and enrich the lives of people in Perth and beyond”, she said.
“We aspire to do the same. Thanks, Lendlease for supporting "Fill This Space” - and getting behind our upcoming activation projects.
“Our success will depend on the strength of our partners and we encourage more organisations who share our passion for the city to get in touch.”
Director of Development for the Lendlease Urban Regeneration business in Western Australia David Ockenden said the team looked forward to working with Activate Perth to make the city a better place to live, work and enjoy.
“Lendlease believes in leaving an enduring and positive outcome in every place we create and through our partnership with Activate Perth we look forward to working with them in ways to build and connect people and grow the community within Perth city,” he said.
“We’re particularly keen on helping Activate Perth realise authentic Perth experiences for locals, visitors and tourists alike.”
Activate Perth’s inaugural Fill this Space tenancy was made possible by Watertown Brand Outlet Centre which is managed by Lendlease for centre owners Far East Organisation.
The program – a rolling 30-day free rent program that matches creatives and start-ups with vacant commercial space –  is based on the highly successful South Australian not-for-profit Renew Adelaide, and its New South Wales predecessor Renew Newcastle.
