The site is bordered by Collins and Flinders Streets, and is directly opposite one of Melbourne’s busiest transport hubs, Southern Cross Station. The neighbourhood’s buildings will provide new spaces for residents, workers and the wider community, with the creation of workplaces and homes, boutique dining and shopping, and communal green open spaces, including a skypark.
The skypark will sit above the hustle and bustle of Collins Street and is set to be an exciting addition to the precinct, designed by DCM architects in collaboration with Aspect Oculus,
There will also be a new retail laneway connecting Collins and Flinders Street and a major new city square in the centre of Melbourne Quarter.
Project Director, Brian Herlihy, said these various green and open spaces would promote wellbeing and a green city life for Melburnians.
“This is great news for Melbourne Quarter’s residents and workers, as well as visitors to the precinct, who will be able to enjoy many new outdoor urban spaces and laneways,” he said.
“We want this area to become a social, economic and residential hub that makes people’s lives better through a combination of great office and residential design, amenity, vibrant retail and authentic public realm that references the rich heritage of the site. The team has been doing a great job in bringing the Melbourne Quarter vision to life and we look forward to providing further updates as the project progresses.”
