Mirvac reveals plans

Mirvac reveals plans Image

The Docklands Networking Lunch travelled to Yarra’s Edge in November and heard first-hand about developer Mirvac’s plans for the precinct.

Mirvac’s residential general manager Elysa Anderson (above) and senior development manager Kate Hilbert outlined the remaining opportunities at Yarra’s Edge.

Ms Hilbert told the lunch at Sassone Cicina Italiana on November 24 that Mirvac was concentrating on completing the Wharf’s Entrance piece of Yarra’s Edge.

“Terraces Stage 2 is currently under construction,” she said. “We’re looking to welcome our new residents into that area early to mid-next year.”

She said the promenade and South Wharf Drive would both be extended.

“We’re looking to get the final piece of Wharf’s Entrance into the market next year,” she said. “That’s another set of terrace homes … so very much premium offering along the water front as well. That will be the final piece to finish off Wharf’s Entrance.”

On the apartment tower front, Ms Hilbert said Mirvac was “actively in the market with Voyager”.

“It’s similar to Forge in that it really builds on its wharf-side heritage,” she said. “On this one we have a very strong focus of bringing the residential amenity up to the top levels.”

“On level 43 there are communal spaces for residents and their guests. There’s a mix of indoor and outdoor offerings there. Internally we have a rooftop bar, cinema and dining space and externally a yoga lawn, barbecues and sunken fire pit – a lounge area for local residents.”

Ms Anderson said she supported the government’s tram crossing concept which, she pointed out was subject to ongoing design and consultation.

“But I think it will be a great piece of infrastructure for the community and will have a very positive impact,” she said.

The next Networking Lunch will be held at the Mission to Seafarers at 717 Flinders St from 12 noon on Friday, March 16.

Tickets must be purchased in advance by March 9. Tickets can be purchased by ringing Docklands News on 8689 7980 or emailing (JavaScript must be enabled to view this email address)
