unlocking fishermans bend

13 Hartley Street, Docklands VIC

Roberts Day in collaboration with MGS Architects are seeking to obtain the Planning Minister’s consent for the delivery of a mixed use development, inclusive of public open space 

Logical extension from Docklands to Fishermans Bend

Roberts Day has been working closely with the client and MGS Architects in progressing a mixed use development on a pivotal site within Fishermans Bend, which the State Government has identified as playing an important role in delivering open space and road infrastructure. 

The site forms an integral part within the Lorimer Precinct, complementing Mirvac’s Yarra’s Edge developments located on the northern side of Lorimer Street. The State Government has long identified a tram route extending past the subject site, with the recently approved Fishermans Bend Framework Plan relocating the tram route from adjacent to the site’s eastern boundary to adjacent to the western boundary. This transport infrastructure further elevates the site’s role in enabling the State Government to achieve its vision for Fishermans Bend. 

In addition to participating in the statutory planning application process through the lodgement of planning application documentation, Roberts Day has coordinated the engagement process with various local and state government agencies through the preparation and lodgement of various written submissions, presentations to the Office of the Victorian Government Architect and more recently the Fishermans Bend Planning Review Panel.
