The application seeks approval for the construction of a multi-storey residential building with ground floor retail tenancies, loading/service facilities and a car parking podium. Two separated towers of 82 m and 49 m in height will rise above an eight-level podium, which curves around the radius of the Dudley Street/Wurundjeri Way corner. The development will contain 261 dwellings and 406 car parking spaces. Three hundred of the car spaces will be allocated to users of new buildings elsewhere in the precinct.

I like its positioning at the back of the site, giving the area pedestrian flow at all hours, not just 9-5. With a hotel next door, the areas utilisation is becoming much more well balanced.

The only thing that would really be hard to sell would be living on the lower floors so close to a major intersection/traffic sewer/train tracks. That spot would hardly be ideal.

Podium looks like Bianca Apartments in Port Melbourne with a twist of Haven in Abbotsford. Very Nice

Development & Planning

Wednesday, December 13, 2017 - 12:00
The swirl of development activity in Footscray has found another gear as new projects are submitted for approval, or are on the verge of beginning construction. Two separate planning applications have been advertised by Maribyrnong City Council; their subsequent addition to the Urban Melbourne Project Database has seen the overall number of apartment developments within Footscray in development swell to 40.

The marriage of old and new can be a difficult process, particularly when the existing structure has intrinsic heritage value. In previous times Fitzroy's 237 Napier Street served as the home of furniture manufacturer C.F. Rojo and Sons. Taking root during 1887, Christobel Rojo oversaw operations though over time the site would become home to furniture manufacturer Thonet.

The former site of John Batman's home, Batman's Hill is entering the final stages of its redevelopment. Collins Square's final tower has begun its skyward ascent, as has Lendlease's Melbourne Quarter Commercial and Residential precinct already. Melbourne Quarter's first stage is at construction and involves a new 12-storey home for consultancy firm Arup along with a skypark.

Infrastructure Victoria unveiled a new round of research into its larger programme of work dealing with managing transport demand. The authority contracted Arup and KPMG to produce the Melbourne Activity Based Model (MABM) and while it is new, it is considered fit for purpose in the strategic context.

Sustainability & Environment

Cbus Property's office development for Medibank at 720 Bourke Street in Docklands recently became the first Australian existing property to receive a WELL Certification, Gold Shell and Core rating. The WELL rating goes beyond sustainable building features with a greater focus on the health and well-being of a building's occupants.
