Impressive! Although I was under the impression they were getting rid of the existing Tiger terminal? Shame it's staying.

Also, some of the connections between the car park and terminal seem a bit confusing.

I know T4 is meant to be a terminal for budget carriers and therefore costs need to be kept down, but god those renders are uninspiring...

The masterplan really does make T2 very cramped, maximising every available inch of space. Overall though, it appears to deliver a more efficient airport but time will tell.

With AI looking more and more likely that it may well turn up in MEL in Aug, along with UL opening an office here as a part of plans to commence services, it will be interesting to see what else occurs in the coming year.

AFR

Australia’s fastest-growing major flight terminal, Melbourne Airport, is developing a 97-unit serviced apartment hotel to be tenanted by Quest, a major player in the market.

The new accommodation will be developed in the business park precinct at Tullamarine. It is due for completion by 2014.

Melbourne Airport chief executive Chris Woodruff said the development would help to meet the growing demand for serviced accommodation from companies and organisations operating at the airport, along with those doing business with the airport and from aviation-related companies.

“Providing more accommodation choice for people who are doing business at the airport, or are undertaking aviation training in the airport precinct, will support the future growth of airport and aviation-related businesses in our local region,” Mr Woodruff said.

The airport experienced a 6 per cent rise in the number of passengers passing through in the last financial year – a higher growth rate than its rivals in Sydney and Brisbane.

^^ Thats the most positive Melbourne related AFR article I've seen in a while. They have a way with words usually in their Melbourne comments :)

Should be another good addition for the businesses and some travelers around there.

With the Parkroyal, Holiday Inn and Ibis Budget (formerly F1) in the terminal precinct, along with the Mantra, Airport Lodge and now Quest all around the airport, it certainly gives a broad range of accommodation choices.

Jetstar to commission new 787 maintenance hangar at MEL (assuming it means they're building one and not leasing):

Good news regarding the JQ investment.

I thought I read they will be leasing a hanger at MEL, but just which one or whether its a new structure which will be built and leased as part of the deal wasn't very clear. Knowing our luck, its just one of the current QF hangers that JQ will take over :)

Great news anyway.

"The airline is leasing a wide body hangar from the Qantas Group which will be fitted out with appropriate equipment and tooling in order to carry out line maintenance of the new aircraft."

And there folks is the answer. No new hanger but just another part of the QF groups existing infrastructure. Atleast it will be utilised now, and part of the lost jobs in recent times by QF in Vic will be re-instated. I'm sure there will be plenty of room at AVV too soon for them to look at also when QF moves out.

JAL to MEL? (From Travel Daily)

Vic pitch for JAL link

Victoria has made a push
for new nonstop services from
Japan, with officials holding talks
last month with Japan Airlines in
Tokyo to state their case.
Tourism Victoria ceo Leigh
Harry confirmed this week that
a delegation of executives from
the Victorian Govt, Melbourne
Airport and Tourism Victoria had
met with senior representatives
at the airline’s head office.
“The aim of the meeting was
to secure a new direct airline to
Melbourne which is the primary
focus for the Victorian Govt in the
Japan market,” Harry said.
JAL currently only operates to
Sydney in Australia on a daily basis.
In May, Melbourne Airport saw
a 10% year-on-year uptick in
passenger traffic from Japanese
passport holders.

Development & Planning

Friday, January 20, 2017 - 00:00
A rush of planning applications either side of the festive break are cumulatively seeking to add to South Melbourne's robust development scene, with four major apartment projects lodged. City of Port Phillip will now assess the respective merits of the fresh applications, along with a handful of other noteworthy towers already at planning that when combined, would provide the popular suburb with thousands of new apartments.

Policy, Culture & Opinion

On 2 January 2017, it was reported that several popular eateries and bars in Footscray had been vandalised, including the perennially successful 8 Bit Burgers on Droop Street, and Up In Smoke on Hopkins Street. 8 Bit had the warm new year's welcome gift of 14 smashed windows and the words “F**k off hipster scum” spray-painted on their entrance.

Visual Melbourne

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”.

Sustainability & Environment

Tuesday, November 29, 2016 - 12:00
Timber mid-rise buildings are becoming the preferred choice for many stakeholders in Melbourne, due to a combination of factors, including cost-effectiveness, liveability, ease and efficiency of construction. Within the recent National Construction Code change, Deemed-To-Satisfy provisions allow mid-rise timber construction for buildings up to 25 metres “effective height” (typically, eight storeys).
