Amidst Australia’s largest urban renewal project, another major approval has graced the Fishermen’s Bend precinct. This ministerial approval consists of a $2 billion innovative campus for Melbourne University which is purpose built to facilitate students of Engineering, Information Technology, Architecture, Building and Urban Planning!
The state government’s vision to turn Fisherman’s bend into a centre of manufacturing, engineering and design innovation paved the way for this approval, as well as a long list of collaborators and stakeholders including well regarded Architecture and Design firms.
We are ecstatic to watch this new precinct and campus develop, and look forward to seeing the next generation of Urban Planners use it to its full potential.
