Tower Neighbourhood Renewal

Cities Centre's mission is to facilitate multi-disciplinary research on key challenges to create sustainable urban regions. The Tower Neighbourhood Renewal (TNR) initiative is an excellent research challenge that requires innovation across several disciplines and the coordination of a multitude of stakeholders.

Cities Centre is supporting this initiative by hosting symposia, connecting researchers and students with project stakeholders, and acting as a hub of knowledge on the initiative.
