School for Fisherman's Bend

Alastair Taylor's picture

was mentioned in this ABC 7:30 interview with Guy:

apparently close to purchasing the land and could be under construction within 2 years. "Vertical" school concept - it'll be interesting to see how many levels...

Fishermen's Bend Schools

The Victorian Government committed to restart education provision planning for Docklands residents in 2014.

In September 2015 the Department of Education and Training commissioned specialist consultants to work in collaboration with the Department to assess the need for both primary and secondary school provision in Docklands.

The review covered the Docklands and the immediate surrounding suburbs of North Melbourne, West Melbourne, Melbourne, Parkville and Flemington.

Stage One of the review assessed the level of need generated from the Docklands community for primary and secondary school education. Stage Two made a number of recommendations with respect to future school provision in the study area.

As part of both stages, the Department undertook community consultation to explore local issues and perspectives. A Community Reference Group was formed to test project findings and share information with the community. This group included a cross section of the community and key stakeholders.

On 11 October 2016, the Government announced an Inner City Schools Package, which will deliver a new primary school in Fishermans Bend.

Funding to buy land and construct the school will be provided in a future State Budget, but work is already underway to identify a site, undertake a site assessment and begin the planning process.

When funding is allocated through the State Budget process, the Government will confirm the timeframe for the delivery of the school.​​

I collect, therefore I am.

City of Port Phillip will this week indicate that it has sufficient reason to object to two pending projects in Port Melbourne. 17 Rocklea Drive and 365-391 Plummer Street are both within the Wirraway Precinct of Fishermans Bend, and both projects are under the authority of the Minister for Planning.

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.

When a site spans 19,280 square metres, it becomes a 'district'. That's the case according to the development team behind the Jam Factory's pending overhaul. Reporting on the project to date has focused on the close to 60,000 square metres of new commercial space that is earmarked for the site, but more importantly from a layperson's perspective is the extensive new public realm that is planned as part of the development.

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.
