Batman’s Hill to provide link

03 Jul 2014

Batman’s Hill to provide link Image

The Batman’s Hill development will provide an important link between Docklands and the Hoddle grid, according to the City of Melbourne.

Councillors discussed Lend Lease’s development plan for the 2.5 hectare site at a Future Melbourne committee meeting on June 3 and unanimously supported the proposal, subject to a few recommendations.

Planning Minister Matthew Guy has sole authority to approve the development plan.

Lend Lease has proposed two mid-rise office buildings, two high-rise office buildings, two mid-rise apartment towers, two high-rise residential towers and a strata office building.

The developer also plans to build an elevated deck over Wurundjeri Way, at the northern end of the site, which would meet Collins St.
Councillor Stephen Mayne said Batman’s Hill would provide a “vital link” between the western end of the Hoddle grid and Docklands.

“This shift of activity towards that end of town is pronounced and this will be, in 10 years time, a very important precinct and development in that part of Melbourne,”
 he said.

Councillor Aaron Wood said: “When we talk about linking the city with Docklands it’s this cap and cover of Wurundjeri Way that will make that possible.”

Lord Mayor Robert Doyle agreed with the necessity of linking Docklands with the CBD and said it was a good plan for a particularly difficult site.
