Yeah, it's an absolute purla.

The whole area's going to need some serious lovin' with regards to PT. The cheapest/quickest form is buses and Lorimer Street has a nice direct path into Southern Cross.

In the wide median on Wurndjeri Way under the Collins St bridge, you could build a large island platform bus bay (accessible from both north and south to cater for growth out toward E-Gate / Kensington / Dynon as well as Fishermans Bend areas) with an extension of the concourse over the rail tracks inside the station over the southbound lanes of Wurndjeri way so SX becomes integrated.

random route idea: run it / replace 237/238 routes starting at SX all the way along Lorimer St, Todd Road and through Beacon Cove to Port Melbourne Light Rail stop - 10 minute frequencies or better.

I do love this too. However I will be interested to see what people will think of essentially living on top of a freeway.

Re: PT, the old now disused Webb Dock Rail line is still there. It runs along Lorimer St, then through Westgate Park, finishing at Todd Rd/Williamstown Rd. A good candidate for Light Rail conversion?

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.

Policy, Culture & Opinion

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.

Transport & Design

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.
