More apartments for NewQuay

More apartments for NewQuay Image

A new apartment tower will deliver an additional 360 apartments to NewQuay.

The dual-tower development was approved last month and will be built at 395 Docklands Drive, which is currently the site of open-air car park.

According to a MAB general manager residential David Allt-Graham, the development consists of two 17-storey towers, with approximately 180 apartments each.

“The architectural vision for the building was to create a high-quality, socially diverse, mixed-use development, underpinned by a focus on pedestrian environment, liveability and the provision of a rich variety of spaces,” Mr Allt-Graham said.

“The development features three landscaped roof terraces which will provide both physical and visual separation between the two towers, as well as provide residents with large outdoor spaces in which to relax and entertain.”

“At the street level, the development will have a strong Docklands Drive address and Rakaia Way will be transformed into a ‘green street’ with more street landscaping and outdoor furniture for pedestrians to linger.”

The spokesperson said a date for the start of construction of the development had not been set.

The permit was granted as part of Planning Minister Matthew Guy’s “Super Tuesday” on February 25, which saw permit approvals granted for five developments across Melbourne.
