We’re excited to announce that we are working with Lendlease, the City of Melbourne’s preferred development partner, to design the proposed development scheme for the Queen Victoria Market Southern Development site. We’re collaborating with lead architects NH Architecture and design partners Kerstin Thompson Architects, Searle x Waldron Architecture, Openwork, McGregor Coxall, Lovell Chen and Urbis.
Excerpt below from City of Melbourne project overview
City of Melbourne has partnered with Lendlease to develop the Southern Precinct. This is the final component in the Queen Victoria Market Precinct Renewal program and part of the formal agreement with the Victorian Government to support the renewal of the market precinct. Gurrowa Place will be built by Lendlease and is set to complement the traditional market experience Melburnians and visitors know and love – bringing new residents and workers to the city’s north and significantly increasing customers to the market.
The $1.7 billion development will complement a range of projects already delivered by Council in the precinct – including heritage shed restoration, the new Munro library and community hub, hospitality and retail offerings in the Munro development and Mirvac’s build-to-rent project on Therry Street.
Once the development is complete, market customers and traders will benefit from up to 800 off-street parking spaces in the precinct – meaning there’ll be no loss of parking with the transformation of Market Square.
