Docklands development will provide “sense of place”
A new sustainable community centre in Melbourne's Docklands will provide residents with a "sense of place", says Places Victoria chairman Peter Clarke.
Plans for the community centre were announced on December 15 and include proposals for a sustainable civic hub on the corner of Bourke and Collins Street that is set to feature a $12.7 million library.
The Docklands area is already a burgeoning retail hub – and local authorities are keen to help foster the spirit of the community as it continues to expand.
Clarke said: "This proposed civic hub will continue to build a sense of place in Docklands, bringing life and soul to this growing community."
His statements were backed up by Melbourne mayor Robert Doyle, who called the project "an important piece of urbanism".
Doyle added: "This is what the city has been trying to advocate for in Docklands, buildings and places that work for people."
Anyone planning a Melbourne property investment might find that the city's Dockland's area is a spot to consider.
This well-connected suburb has excellent transport links to the CBD and is located alongside picturesque Victoria Harbour, with stunning views of the city and waterfront.
