Sustainable development for Stadium precinct

A $300 million sustainable development has been announced for Docklands’ North East Stadium Precinct (NESP).

Planning Minister Justin Madden said the development known as the Lacrosse Docklands would receive the VicUrban Ecologically Sustainable Design (ESD) Award of Merit.

Features will include:

A blackwater treatment plan which will re-use 70 per cent of stormwater; and

Rainwater from roofs will be used to flush toilets and podium water will be used for irrigation.

“The Lacrosse Docklands development will see 550-600 residents call the place home. As well, two new entry points have been created to the Telstra Dome concourse for people coming over the LaTrobe St bridge,” Mr Madden said.

VicUrban has entered into a development agreement with 675 LaTrobe St Pty Ltd – a joint venture between Pan Urban and Halim Group, to develop the site.

“The Lacrosse Docklands will feature a 21-level city-facing tower and 18-level water-facing tower that will create a precinct to add to Melbourne’s ever growing CBD community,” Mr Madden said.

The development will also see 300 SoHo (small office/home office) apartments, 120 serviced apartments, and more than 5000 sqm of retail space.

VicUrban CEO Pru Sanderson said the development was in line with VicUrban’s

vision for the entire stadium area.

“The proximity to both Southern Cross Station and the CBD, combined with easy

access to the Docklands waterfront makes this a prime area in which to deliver an active, integrated development unique to this part of the world,” Ms Sanderson said.

“The project will also further strengthen the diversity of the Docklands wider community, bringing in additional residential, retail and commercial opportunities.”

Construction is scheduled to begin in mid-2008 with completion in 2010.
