Wyndham Harbour | Werribee South

Hi everyone, new guy here from the south western 'burbs.

Wanting to show you the progress made so far on the Wyndham Harbour development going on along the coast of Werribee South. These apartments here are all sold out and construction looks set to be complete pretty soon. Not sure how many apartments are in this building but I think it's just over 100. There's going to be 1000sqm of retail space and 2000sqm public space including a piazza area.

These are the artist impressions on how this area should look once complete.

And a new proposed apartment complex:

spoke to the developer some time ago. once the section behind is rezoned they will have opportunity to develop 10 level residential towers

may roll this thread into the greater melbourne thread at some point

Oh right, I didn't know that. It would be weird to see buildings up to 10 levels almost in the middle of nowhere surrounded by farms.

they won't be surrounded by farms that's for sure

Whatever happened to this plan?

I'm not too sure Peter. My only guess is they may have gone with another architect firm who came up with a completely different design. I do prefer that one by Fender Katsalidis Mirams though.

Interesting and it's a start for higher density in fringe areas but it is a special case - people presumably buying in so they can have a berth fir their boat. Might even be that the apts are for weekends and holidays only. The rest seems to be typical low density suburban housing. And it's hardly a real community, no supermarket or school, just a piazza and cafes.

Development & Planning

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.
