I like this scheme. The pedestrian walkway through the site, along with the townhouses around the podium make this a better outcome than many proposals have shown.

Goodman a big winner in planning changes

>> GOODMAN Group stands to make $283 million from the increase in the value of its land holdings in Port Melbourne following a planning change, according to analysts from Macquarie.

This week the Victorian government signed off on the masterplan for Fishermans Bend, on the opposite bank of the Yarra River to the CBD near the suburb of Port Melbourne.

The government hopes the 250ha urban renewal project on the mostly industrial land holdings will eventually accommodate 80,000 residents and 40,000 jobs.

Analysts at Macquarie believe Goodman Group, which owns or manages about 28ha in the precinct, will be one of the largest beneficiaries of the planning changes.

>>The company has already gone through its land bank to identify which sites can be sold off to residential developers.

Chief executive Greg Goodman has estimated that the group has sites capable of holding a total of 35,000 apartments.

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.

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.
