^ would replace one of the ugliest building in the CBD so just get on ith it!

Re:flemington the land is on the north side behind the grandstands, station and at the end of the show grounds off fisher parade (not racecourse road or Epsom road). Most of the carpark a in that area are privately owned by the vrc a opposed to the racetrack itself which is crown land and therefore not developable for private purposes. That land is identified as 'major change' in new Melbourne mss

Fishermans Bend renewal project includes underground train stations

Read more: http://www.heraldsun.com.au/national-news/victoria/fishermans-bend-renew...

TWO underground train stations could be built at Fishermans Bend in Port Melbourne under long-term plans for the multi-billion dollar urban renewal project.
A line from Southern Cross Station would link the stations to the city, but the project would not go ahead before the proposed Melbourne Metro rail tunnel between South Yarra and South Kensington.
A more immediate option for Fishermans Bend is a tramline along Williamstown Rd, which is considered a potential "high amenity" route under the draft master plan for the housing and commercial re­development.
The plan, to be launched today by Premier Denis Napthine and Planning Minister Matthew Guy, calls for the precinct to include a tree-lined boulevard and to provide green spaces linking CBD and bayside parks.

Wow, that looks awesome, assuming its a failed proposal for what is now The William?

Well I got a laugh out of that. Not necessarily on design/urban merit, but primarily on the thought of Melbourne City Council's collective heads exploding upon seeing it.

80,000 tipped to call Vic's Fishermans Bend home
Sarah Danckert
From: The Australian
September 17, 2013

THE Victorian government has released its vision for the Fishermans Bend precinct, with long-term plans for the urban renewal project including two underground train stations and the extension of the Collins Street tram over the Yarra River.

The industrial area abutting Southbank and across the river from the Docklands has been earmarked for five new residential suburbs housing up to 80,000 people and will become the workplace for 40,000.

A mixture of low-density, medium-density and high-density residential projects will dot the 250ha site.

"It is incredible to think how the Fishermans Bend Urban Renewal Area has the capacity to accommodate a population approaching the size of Ballarat or Bendigo on the doorstep of the existing CBD," Victorian Premier Denis Napthine said.

"Sydney and Brisbane can only dream about planning a project of this scale.

One word re William St:

PANS-OPS

No more talk of FB being the home for the counties tallest buildings, now Matt Guy is all about open space and low density housing with a few 40 storey buildings being thrown in.
I guess the PAN OPPS fiasco has left Matt Guy with so much rotten egg on his face that it scared him off his skyscraper ambition for Melbourne.
If so, what good is he now ??

He may not be planning minister for much longer depending on how this Geoff Shaw fiasco pans out!

I don't think Matthew Guy has changed his viewpoint per say, but Dennis may have had a word or two about "consultation" :)

If you look at many aspects of the FB plan, it really is what Port Phillip wanted in many parts. I think the outcome is actually quite strong. It has elements of height, but also density across the area.

Planning Application has been submitted for 127-141 A'Beckett Street for a mixed use building of apartments and ground floor retail. This building will be directly behind the Urbanest Building currently going up on La Trobe street.
Hopefully it's something of decent size.

From their website:

ICD Property has recently purchased its first development project in Melbourne’s CBD where it will deliver an architecturally-designed high-density apartment project.

Positioned within easy walking distance of Melbourne’s iconic Queen Victoria Market and with all of the city’s incredible bars, restaurants, cafés and shopping hubs at its doorstep, this development will become ICD Property’s landmark project within Melbourne.

Set to be designed by the multi-award-winning Elenberg Fraser, this project will include a number of communal facilities as well as ground level retail and a new laneway precinct, this project is currently in planning stages and pre-sales are likely to commence in the latter part of 2014.

Re fish bend the numbers of residents and jobs is still the same as initially announced I think he is just realising you can get density wight height.

Probably also a response to the market conditions... Reality is something in the wirraway end of the development near Todd road is unlikely to be built tall for 20 years, this gives more diversity of housing acros the whole precinct.

The design guidelines include some really interesting stuff eg.
- maximum % of 1 bedrooms in developments over 20 dwellings (target that should be met)
- minimum % of 3 bedroom dwellings in developments over 20 dwellings (target that should be met)
- 10m setback requirements for towers
- requirement that through block links be provided at no greater than 100m gaps to avoid the docklands mega block feeling
- Any new development must respect proposed site setbacks or rights of way which might occasionally be indicated to accommodate proposed public realm and infrastructure requirements. (Shown next to an image if a road widening for tram extension)
- active uses preferred on frontages up to 20m in height (about 5 levels, much better than some cbd stuff at the moment ith 1-2 stories like abode)
- parking rates are 1 space per dwelling maximum nf recommended 0.5 spaces for two bedders and 0 spaces for 1 bedders.
- all parking above ground must be wrapped in a sleeve of active uses

Looks like Matthew guy left this tithe experts. Expect the developers to play a big role in the consultation and some of this to be further watered down (noting that they are all discretionary at the moment) with them blaming 'economics'

Ad I go past that kew development regularly. No wonder boroondara residents fear high density development. Ugly, concrete block.

Court dismisses appeal against Lend Lease
REBECCA THISTLETON

>> The Victorian Supreme Court has dismissed a last ditch attempt to stop global property group Lend Lease from developing 448 apartments in Melbourne leafy inner east.

The controversial Orrong Road project in Armadale will include 16 apartment towers, up to 13 storeys high.

The original scheme attracted 630 objections and was rejected by Stonnington Council. Lend Lease appealed and the Victorian Civil and Administrative Tribunal approved the scheme.
