Hampden Road and 'Broadway' are two small strips with some great retail design.
You'll see evidence of clever signage solutions, unique footpath arrangements, stunning architecture and much more.

Being within cooee of University of Western Australia (Broadway) and Hollywood Hospital (Hampden Road) these two strips have a sustainable source of commercial activity (if managed well).
A Beautiful City place management finds existing and incoming retailers who provide the best economic development.
Intelligent retail design engages the community beyond the need for essential services and creates lasting activity that keeps social innovation churning.
There is no other place you will see such bang-for-your-buck social innovation than in a mainstreet.
A well managed mainstreet, that is. An A-Beautiful-City-Managed mainstreet, I should say.
I am pleased to introduce the City of Nedlands as our newest client, meaning they will enjoy people counting data in two of their mainstreets for the next 12 months.
We installed a people counter in Hampden Road, Nedlands in June this year and the second is scheduled for 'Broadway', Nedlands this month.
Already there is a characteristic lunchtime peak in the Nedlands counting. It's from the Grey's Anatomy crowd at the Hollywood Hospital. It's very predicable and you can set your clock by it.
