Here’s an interesting idea for Harbour Esplanade

08 May 2014

Here’s an interesting idea for Harbour Esplanade Image

Architectural firm Peddle Thorp Architects has come up with an interesting proposal for Harbour Esplanade.

The firm has produced a concept for a Docklands Aquatic Centre, located opposite Etihad Stadium.

The proposal was not created in response to a formal request, but rather in response to what director Peter Brook saw as a need in the area.

“The Docklands Aquatic centre is a concept/proposal we prepared to fill what we see as a gap in the recreational facilities available to inner-city residents,” Mr Brook said.

The proposed aquatic centre would feature a 50-metre pool, a leisure and learn-to-swim pool, change facilities, a wellness centre, a gym and fitness program room, a café and social spaces.

“Whilst it is a conceptual idea only at this stage, it has been very favourably received by a number of interested parties,” Mr Brook said.

Despite this interest, the concept seems unlikely to become a reality as the site suggested is already pigeonholed for a ferry terminal (see our story on page 1).

A pool, located in front of the Library at the Dock, is part of Lend Lease’s masterplan for Victoria Harbour.
