Smart mall lights up heart of Charlestown

Pearson Street Mall has reopened to the public following a $2.8 million transformation.


An illuminated and interactive furniture experience designed by local creative and education company, Codewise, is one of the Charlestown CREATE creative treatments that adds to the visitor experience of the revamped mall. The interactive furniture, blending gamification with digital technologies, aims to empower and excite children about digital technologies and innovation.

Lake Macquarie Mayor Cr Fraser said the new public art installations and the refurbishment works will help to create a more vibrant public space in the heart of Charlestown.
