"The mix of old and new is part of the cachet of the area and we want to enhance that" 

The reinvention and rejuvenation of New York City (NYC) over the last decade has attracted global attention, including being awarded the Lee Kuan Yew World City Prize in 2012.  NYC embraced its complexity, density, and diversity, to witness a marked increase in the quality of life in a short span of time. 

New York and Auckland continue to address similar challenges, including accommodating for unprecedented levels of growth and the need to renew aging physical infrastructure.
