Thanks SO much Fedsquared.
So much detail here and this is exactly what I've been waiting for on this development.

Looks excellent!

Hard to keep up with all the student accommodation projects in Carlton. The major British student group, GSA, has a 19L tower under way at 684 Elizabeth Street, which is next door to the Royal Elizabeth.

A shocking heritage outcome. But then, this part of Swanston St. is pretty much cooked anyway.

I would love to see the shitboxes over the road torn down. Some of the worst street level around.

Totally agree. Probably Melbourne's most uninspiring and ugly stretch of street (and I can say, I live on it so have to endure it every day). Disgraceful for somewhere so close to the CBD

Have we seen this yet?

The University of Melbourne has selected a Lyons Architecture led team for its $229 million "New Student Precinct" on the corner of Swanston and Grattan. This is across the road from the Carlton Connect Initiative and will be adjacent to the new Parkville Metro Station.

Lyons Architecture-led consortium to design Melbourne Uni student precinct
by Linda Cheng

The University of Melbourne has appointed a team of architecture practices, led by Lyons Architecture, to design its $229 million New Student Precinct at its Parkville campus.

The team comprises US-based Koning Eizenberg Architecture (led by University of Melbourne alumni Julie Eizenberg and Hank Koning), Aspect Studios, Breathe Architecture, NMBW Architecture Studio, Greenaway Architects, Glas Urban and Architects EAT.

“Our design team, who are all university alumni, are looking forward to working closely with students so that the design positively reflects their aspirations for a campus experience,” said said Carey Lyon, founding director of Lyons Architecture.

The collaborative approach follows the completion of RMIT University’s New Academic Street, which was designed by a Lyons Architecture-led team of practices which were all led by RMIT alumni.

The New Student Precinct will be located on the corner of Grattan and Swanston Streets and will be bordered by Monash Road to the north and the School of Engineering precinct to the west.

The site includes nine existing buildings, including the Sidney Myer Asia Centre designed by Nation Fender Katsalidis Architects in 2002.

The project scope entails the adaptive reuse of the existing buildings with extensive refurbishments and facade treatments, as well as the construction of a new arts and cultural building, which will be four storeys with a roof top space. The John Smyth Building on Swanston Street will be replaced with a new five-storey development.

The project will bring together student unions, academic services and the Melbourne Institute for Indigenous Development, Murrup Barak.

It will deliver a new series of student spaces, include social spaces, mixed-use retail, food and beverage outlets and contemporary study spaces.

The precinct will also be located adjacent to the proposed Metro Tunnel station at Parkville, and the Carlton Connect Initiative, on the opposite corner of Grattan and Swanston Streets, to be designed by Woods Bagot, Hayball and Aspect Studios.

The University of Melbourne received 40 applicant teams for the project, of which five were invited to present their conceptual designs.

“The selection process fostered and supported submissions from some of the most speculative and innovative design and spatial practitioners in Australia and overseas,” said professor Donald Bates, chair of architectural design at the Melbourne School of Design and a member of the selection panel.

“The finalists each provided a unique vision for how the University of Melbourne embraces the changing role and experience of education, research and community engagement. The winning team fulfils the ambitious goals of the New Student Precinct process to produce a lasting legacy in the new centre for the campus.”

The project will be “co-created” with students, which will “enable students to be part of the government, design and activation of the space.”

The project is expected to be completed by 2021–2022.[/QUOTE]

Looks to be MU's response to RMIT's New Academic Street - competition can be a good thing. Btw Laurie wrote on it last week.

It's an outrage! Putting tall buildings next to existing tall buildings next to a freeway with no overshadowing

Outrage as high-rise towers approved at former Games village

A controversial plan to build apartment towers up to 21 levels high at the former Commonwealth Games Village in Parkville has been given the go-ahead despite years of resident protests.
And those residents have vowed to keep on fighting.
The state government decision means future tower heights for the Parkville Gardens estate will soar from 11 levels of apartments plus three to four levels of car parking, to 17 levels of apartments plus car parking levels.
Only one tower will have 17 levels of apartments, while the others will range from 10 to 16 storeys, plus car parking levels.
Most of the current residential towers next to Royal Park, which includes about 900 homes, are restricted to two or three levels, or are within medium-rise apartment blocks bordering CityLink.
The tallest building is 11 levels.
Developers, however, recently went back to the government and successfully persuaded planning advisers to recommend towers rising to 22 levels in the project's final stage.
Planning Minister Richard Wynne was last year poised to sign off on the deal, which would gift Citta Property Group and Frasers Property a windfall worth tens of millions of dollars.
But this week it was revealed Mr Wynne had amended the planning controls paving the way for the last stages of the redevelopment, following the findings of an independent panel last year.
Mr Wynne took most of the advice of the panel, but he reduced the maximum tower height to 17 storeys.

I was surprised to see that they've already begun demolition on Journal's second project. Renders are light on, but the Journal Living website gives the name "Central" and completion in 2020. Journal Student Living's second project, a major re-development of the CMFEU's site at 500 Swanston Street, is directly across from the CUB site. Designed by Metier3, there will be 710 beds across 18L, with a planned 2020 finish. Journal is backed by the South African group, Redefine.
