Riverlee has fenced off the area adjacent to the Seafarers Bridge, as work begins on refurbishing 220 metres of North Wharf, restoration of the crane and the creation of a public park. This work will complete the pedestrian connection between the World Trade Centre and the Jim Stynes bridge. The approved apartment/hotel scheme, which will partially overhang a restored Goods Shed 5, is presumably dependent on sales. Thanks to melburn21 for render.

Love the idea of a pedestrian/bike link to North Melboune (West Melbourne by 2021?) station. Though given E-Gate is about to become a freeway infested cesspool thanks to the Westgate Tunnel, I wonder how viable this will be. The current tunnel designs dont have any reference to this, which means trying to retrofit it later may be tricky.

That's not entirely true. I can't seem to find it, but Wynne mandated a change to the Wurundjeri Way extension, which lowers the elevated road as it passes by North (soon West) Melbourne Station. It'll be an at-grade intersection at Dynon Rd now, rather than an overpass. In that document are two alternate plans for pedestrian access through the e-gate site to Footscray Rd. One was an extension of the north end staff bridge at North Melbourne, and the other is a new bridge on the southern side of station.

@Melbourne Big Bird - from what I've heard it's being built over part of the existing centre hence the use of CLT construction.

I'm also pretty sure that the sliver of land along Waterfront Way adjacent to the car park is being developed as part of 'The Market'.

@Zenith - Where did you read this? According to the website, the connection is still an overpass at Dynon Rd. And no mention of pedestrian access at the south end of the station.

Hutchinson is moving quickly on The Market (Woolworths, etc), with the ground floor of the car park now closed. The 4th shot shows the new cinema complex on the RHS of the wheel. The last two pics show that site works have begun on the new school.

Wonder what they will replace it with

Victorian government homes in on Seven's Docklands HQ

Development Victoria, a state government agency, has bought the Docklands home of the Seven Network for about $100 million from the building's owner, the NRMA.

The deal comes just weeks after the state government announced a $225 million funding agreement with the AFL to redevelop Docklands Stadium, just behind the Seven building.

It is the second major commercial tower the government agency has acquired in recent months, acquiring the former Carlton & United Breweries building in Southbank for about $95 million.

In Southbank as well, the earlier property deal also paved the way for a broader strategy. The state government this month unveiled plans to develop the country's largest contemporary art gallery on the CUB building site.

A Development Victoria spokesman said the purchase of the Seven building at 160 Harbour Esplanade would allow it to develop long-term strategies to revitalise the Docklands Stadium and waterfront.

"The Victorian state government is funding $225 million towards the redevelopment of Docklands Stadium so it can continue to bring Victorians world-class sport and entertainment events for the next 30 years," he said.

With 8237 square metres of office space, the 160 Harbour Esplanade building is fully leased to Seven. Around seven years remain on the lease. The 6701 sq m site overlooks Victoria Harbour.

The AFL is going to be developing a 7 star hotel where their HQ is currently (directly south of the channel 7 building) so the government will lease them the land to do it. The hotel will have a massive collumless ballroom overlooking the waterfront where the brownlow medal will be hosted in the future (along with other events)

This purchase is part of the ~$250m upgrade for the docklands stadium precinct announced in the budget.

http://www.docklandsnews.com.au/editions/article/state-funds-afl-for-eti...

Details of the deal are sketchy, with the most information coming from Channel 9 Footy Show host and Collingwood Football Club president Eddie McGuire on April 12.

Speaking about the $225 million, Mr McGuire said: “Included in that is a new precinct. They’re going to knock down where AFL House is and the Channel Seven area out the front there.”

“In a joint venture between the AFL and the state government, (it) will go into building a seven-star hotel where the Brownlow Medal and other major events will be held.”

“And out over the road there to the waterfront at the other end of the ground.”

“On the northern side, there may even be another development there of a Festival Hall-style building. So this has become concert venue.”

So at least part of the land will be used in a new development within the decade, a future live music venue to replace Festival Hall could be built into the podium of a future project which would be great.

Here is Eddy Everywhere talking about it on the footyshow before the budget: https://twitter.com/aflfootyshow/status/984381194186846208

Melbourne to get its first timber commercial office building

DOCKLANDS | 3008 | General News and Discussion

Melbourne is set to get its first timber commercial office building.

The wood engineered structure with an end value of $56 million will join Australia’s first multi-storey timber apartment tower and a landmark wooden public library in the Docklands urban renewal precinct which has become a focal point for sustainable buildings.

Sydney-based developer AsheMorgan has launched a leasing campaign for tenants to occupy a multi-storey office which will straddle an existing two level concrete building in The District, a shopping centre next to Footscray Road best known as the location of Melbourne’s Star Skywheel.

About two thirds of the new structure will be made from cross laminated timber (CLT), an engineered product made from layers of softwood arranged crosswise and glued together under pressure into large panels.

Walked past yesterday and it looks like work has started on Woodwork.

Meanwhile, they're making good progress demolishing the first level of the car park for The Market.

The intersting part is that in their submission to the WestGate tunnel hearing, Ashe Morgan included plans which suggest the western side of the car park will be sleeved by an apartment building, as one of the cores is nominated as being for residential.

I took some shots on July 4th. I'm not sure if the last one is the Woodwork site, but I think it is just being used as a laydown area, as that piler was on the other side of the road, working beside the car park recently.

Work continuing on The Market.

$450m Northbank development in Melbourne CBD gets planning approval

A NEGLECTED northbank CBD site is set to be revitalised with a $450 million redevelopment approved.

Seafarers Place will comprise a 17-storey hotel and apartment tower, and a new public park.

Developer Riverlee plans to turn historic Goods Shed No. 5 on the site into a function hall and restore Flinders Wharf and its heritage-listed crane.

Located between Spencer St and Charles Grimes Bridge, the area has been called the missing link between the CBD and Docklands.

Lord Mayor Sally Capp has nominated the Yarra’s northbank an eyesore, especially the precinct between Spencer St and Flinders St Station.

Seafarers Place got City of Melbourne approval in February and now the state Planning Department has given the project the green light.

Architects are Fender Katsalidis and landscape design is by OCULUS.

Riverlee development director David Lee said wharf and crane restoration works had started, and main construction was due to start mid-2019.

“With never-to-be-built-out views of the Yarra River and Docklands Park, this under-utilised site will transform into a world-class waterfront precinct bridging Melbourne CBD and Docklands,” he said.

“The open spaces and public park are designed to give the waterfront back to the

community and celebrate the unique character and history of the site.”

Mr Lee said the refurbished goods shed would become a premium waterfront space “designed

to celebrate and highlight its grand original roof trusses”.

The tower will have 280 hotel rooms and 150 luxury apartments.

Riverlee is a privately owned property firm founded by Malaysian-Australian businessman Clement Lee.

^ you can see in the third shot they're forming the pit for a mini lift and stair core. Unless something has changed there should be a sleeve of apartments being built.

All the preliminary work at Seafarer's Place seems close to completion, so perhaps they will open up the riverside promenade soon. Some seats have been installed and the overhaul of the crane seems to be finished too. Let's hope they can start construction of the building in 2019.
