Pearson Street Mall Upgrade

  • Project typeCity Works
  • Completion Date31 December 2020


Since 2016, we’ve been planning to upgrade Pearson Street Mall to create a more inviting space for you to eat, meet, work and play at Charlestown’s Pearson Street Mall.

Key features

The upgrade features:

  • new landscaping
  • custom-made street furniture
  • smart cities initiatives including smart bins, digital signage and public art
  • Wi-Fi
  • a suite of environmental sensors
  • flexible space to hold events, markets, live music and food trucks.


The upgrade to Pearson Street Mall will encourage more activity, offer places and different options for people to connect, enjoy safely and keep returning to, while at the same time recognising the needs of local businesses.

When will the work occur?

Council is in the process of calling for tenders to complete the upgrade to the mall.

We expect to appoint the tender in the coming months, with works expected to start in mid-2020 and be completed in summer 2020.

How might this affect you?

Once the tender is appointed and a program of works has been provided to Council, we will be contacting businesses and residents directly to discuss any impacts the construction works may have.

At all times, we will do our best to minimise disruptions to businesses and the community where possible.
