A fun place for you and your friends to play on your iPhones without talking to each other is coming to Highgate!

Seriously though,

With input from our community, the City is creating a unique public space at the corner of Beaufort and Mary streets… It’ll be a meeting place, a community hub, a spot for kids and families; a locality for lingering, lounging and lunch breaks; for reading, emailing and people watching; a platform for performances, small events and other happenings…


This is your piazza and it’s in the heart of Highgate! Works will be completed before the 2015 Beaufort Street Festival in November.


We’ll let everyone know prior to any works commencing via on-site signage and local Info Bulletins (letters hand delivered to affected residents and businesses).


Want to have your say? Speak to the City of Vincent.

If you have any queries about the design, please contact our Place Management team on 9273 6000.
