FISHERMANS BEND | 60 Buckhurst Street | 30L | Residential

Couldn't find a thread for this one? Probably missed it.  Anyways it was approved last year by Matthew Guy:

 60 Buckhurst St, South Melbourne, VIC 3205

The Buckhurst St project is the proposed development of 4 major land parcels in the heart of the Montague Precinct – on Buckhurst Street, South Melbourne – into four residential towers over two combined podiums.

The proposal aims to integrate the development site into a greater strategic plan co-ordinated with adjoining sites to the northwest and north to deliver a high quality, high-density residential development of considerable architectural merit.

The development response incorporated a collaborative approach in conjunction with surrounding development sites to inform the “master plan”, which included: – in association with the owners of adjoining sites, an integrated transport solution for the greater development site within the Montague Precinct; – responding to strategic plans to convert Kerr Street into an open space and pedestrian friendly environment; – responding to the aims of the Montague Structure Plan to make Buckhurst Street the “green spine”, a highly pedestrianised and primary walking and cycling link within the Precinct; and – responding to the proposed preliminary placement of podium/tower development on adjoining properties (as understood) and so, considering equitable development rights.

The proposal aims to create four towers containing a combined 1023 apartments, room for 693 cars, and 1,651sqm of retail and podium amenities.

I shudder to think what will happen now with Fishermans Bend with the new government.

Martin Foley, the local MP, wants a moratorium on all development until an entirely new plan for the precinct is drawn up.

Melbourne’s architectural landscape is a wonderful juxtaposition of modern and Victorian architecture. Although the CBD has been peppered with many skyscrapers, its historical structures have won Melbourne the title of “Australia’s most European city”. Perhaps the most striking example of this juxtaposition between old and new is the Coops Shot...

The proposed new Melbourne Conservatorium of Music (MCM) on Sturt Street is shaping to become much more than a cutting edge venue. While the project has been given coverage to date across a range of mediums, very little has been said regarding the project playing an integral part in the...
