■ Transport Hub, Southbank,
The Victorian Government have engaged a number of consulting firms to review the viability of establishing a transport hub on the southern side of the Yarra River in Melbourne City. Our role is to identify the planning issues related to the project and work in consultation with the architects and urban design team to develop solutions.
The area is highly urbanised and already built up. The viability of the project will be dependent on the government’s appetite to deliver a transport hub.
As part of the overall design development team we have presented an option which would not require any legislative change to planning controls to be developed. The project would undoublty create greater connection between both sides of the city on the river and improve commuter access to the city centre.
