Strategy to revitalise Footscray
September 17, 2013
Benjamin Preiss

Footscray would shed its battler image and transform into an edgy university town in a proposal from Victoria University and Maribyrnong City Council.

They plan to build student accommodation and establish arts and sports precincts as part of a scheme to rejuvenate the suburb.

A report prepared by the university and council said Footscray was perceived as dated, with a ''historical association with crime and the drug trade''.

''Rather than acting as a welcoming doorway to the exciting west, it has been a psychological barrier. Until Footscray is rejuvenated, it will act like a cork in a bottle, hindering the west's development, rather than fostering it.''

The university's vice-chancellor, Peter Dawkins, will sign the project's memorandum of understanding on Tuesday with Maribyrnong City Council chief Vince Haining.

The council has a ''land bank'' of nine car parks that could be redeveloped for the project.

And finally, the first part of the reconstructed Footscray Station opened the other day.  The new RRL station platform is also ahead of schedule apparently,

>>> 26-34 Buckley Street Footscray

 

Wedged inbetween the god awful developments of the Belgravia Hotel and Zone apartments.  Please, please let this one be decent or the whole street will start to become a write off, especially since the best development along there @ 90-92 Buckly St (Onyx Apartments) looks dead in the water.

 

 

>>> 4 Neilson Place Footscray

 

Another day, another Joseph Rd precinct proposal, this one abuts the railway and is across the road from the somewhat disappointing Romeo and Juliet towers. Now if only one of them would turn soil soon...!

 

I think there are enough proposals in this precinct now to warrant a Blockhead render... *hint hint*

Footscray will probably be next in line after a north CBD and Southbank render.

I wonder if the last aspect will come to fruition. Seems very good for the non active side of the site

The design has evolved from the idea of producing an iconic landmark in this important emerging precinct on the central city fringe - a striking 30 storey, curved tower positioned at the corner of Hopkins and Cowper Streets in Footscray. The curved form projects across the reailway easement - creating both an edge to Hopkins Street and a distinct architectural form of two and three storey townhouses that remain respectful of the surrounding neighbourhood.

Yep, Binks Ford. Wonder when this design came about? Looks somewhat different to the original design.

http://www.sjb.com.au/projects/footscray-station-precinct

Good to hear PV are still actively developing it. Thought they may have tried to sell it along with their site across the road in Hopkins St. Now if only this, as well as the Hopkins St proposal plus 'The Wave' project over Footscray Market were all fast tracked before the election as part of a Footscray 'Super Tuesday' announcement...! :)

Wow! Thats certainly a lot of colour going on there but I think it works.

Mark - Was this given approval along with State Trustees or is it a separate application? Am desperate to see something start in Footscray as once State Trustees and Footscray Plaza are done mid year there's nothing else on the horizon!

believe it's approved. MCR website tags the pics as final stakeholder presentation so here's hoping the design is set and they're not far away. the brick pattern facade panels save the design.

State Trustees can't be far away from completion; i can see some office furniture starting to pop up through the windows from the station in the morning.

Mark - time to organise a UM tour of the building? :)

Found out the completion dates for Footscray Plaza from the developer:

The apartments will be finished by 30th June.

Kmart expect to achieve Practical Completion by 24 July 2014;

Coles expect to achieve Practical Completion by 28 August 2014

I tweeted Coles and they said: it's currently set to open nearer the end of September but we can promise you it will be worth the wait! :)

Bout time! Driving to Yarraville for groceries is getting old.
