Getting prepared on Waterfront Place

The Council has adopted draft urban design guidelines for 1-11 Waterfront Place (between the Port Melbourne station building and Princes St) in anticipation of an application being lodged for this site at some time in the near future.

The report concludes that a built form height of 21m RL or 5 levels with setback is the preferred scale in consideration of policy, strategic and site analysis. Any increase in height should be based on and evaluated on the principles, guidelines and preferred built form detailed in the report.

The Council will also be writing to the Minister for Planning suggesting that a Ministerial Advisory Committee be established to consider any development application for the site.
