Waterfront Place, Port Melbourne, Victoria
For over 150 years Port Melbourne’s Station Pier has welcomed generations of immigrants and millions of visitors from around the world. Today, Station Pier continues to act as a transport hub allowing visitors to access Melbourne via interstate ferries and international cruise ships. Around Station Pier, Port Melbourne has seen significant change from its maritime industrial past and is now a highly desirable place to live and visit. The Port Melbourne foreshore is now lined with high rise apartments that extend from New Beach all to way to the Bay Street Activity Centre and beyond.
The site is located at Melbourne’s waterfront gateway and is at the focal point of the traditional vessel entry point to Melbourne. It is located in Beacon Cove adjacent Station Pier and the terminus for the light rail connecting Port Melbourne with the central activities district of Melbourne. The proposal is for a mixed use development with residential dwellings, serviced apartments and a mix of food and beverage and lifestyle retail tenancies
Waterfront Place demonstrates a significant opportunity to revitalise a site that is strategically located next to Station Pier and at the termination of the Port Melbourne light rail to central Melbourne. The proposal provides for a development boasting a range of community, tourist and private accommodation uses with direct access to the CBD via a high frequency light rail service. A true mixed use transit oriented development.
Private residential dwellings are provided in three sculpted residential towers. Private dwellings have been located and designed to capitalise on the Port Melbourne foreshore location which will endow occupants with excellent amenity. Future residents will enjoy views and direct access to foreshore public open space, convenient access to high frequency public transport (109 Tram), shopping and other community
The site enjoys convenient access to the following community facilities and services:
Excellent access to Public Transport with tram route 109 light rail service to the city and bus routes 250 to Latrobe University, 251 to Northland Shopping Centre and 253 to North Carlton
