Uni of Melbourne campus vital for construction sector over coming years

July 7, 2020

Urban Developer website reports that, “The University of Melbourne might have to go back to the drawing board on the design of a proposed $2 billion campus at Fishermans Bend following a critical committee report."


City of Melbourne Director of Strategy, Emma Appleton is quoted as saying, ““The masterplan provides limited explanation of how this site will relate to the surrounding context,” and that “At the moment the built form appears to overwhelm the public realm.” 

The University of Melbourne will occupy around 7ha of the 33ha GMH site and less than 1.5% of the Fishermans Bend Urban Renewal Area.

The construction work involved in Stage 1 of the project is vital to the construction industry as the current projects in FBURA are coming to an end and a number of apartment projects are on hold  or awaiting review of their permits.
