Francis Street, Yarraville

This projectinvolved the rezoning of land, commenced in 2010 and approved in early 2016, involved the rezoning of land from Industrial to Residential with a Development Plan Overlay, and the transfer of part of the land to Council to facilitate a multi storey residential development comprising 131 apartments over seven storeys plus two levels of basement parking. The final result is a unique ‘U’ shaped development that incorporates a large central grassed area, extensive glazing that integrates with the surrounding green spaces, outdoor terraces at various levels, activated interfaces, a well recessed ‘invisible’ upper level and a combination of carefully considered materials and finishes. The attention to detail has resulted in an elegant landmark development that makes a positive contribution to the streetscape of Francis Street and offers a unique living environment.
