Charter Hall Group has announced it has been granted planning approval for a new 5,000 square metre public space at its Wesley Place precinct in Melbourne’s CBD.

Designed by landscape architects OCULUS, in collaboration with Cox Architects, the complex will be available to the public from mid-2020.

The 5,000 square metre public space will include food and beverage retail offering, and 520 square metres of lawn and native flora to complement the existing heritage-listed olive and elm trees onsite.

“The receipt of this approval for the public space is another exciting milestone for this transformative $1.5 billion precinct. When it opens in mid-2020, the space will create a sanctuary in the heart of the Melbourne CBD, providing the community and our Wesley Place tenants with a diverse, future-ready and tech-enabled space for people to collaborate, converge and communicate on a daily basis,” said Charter Hall Regional Development Director, Simon Stockfeld.

The space will reportedly be technology enabled, with features such as outdoor power outlets with USB charging ports, digital maps for wayfinding and solar powered ‘smart bins’ that self-compact and alert maintenance staff when they require emptying.
