The sweet sound of piles being driven

30 Jun 2010

Docklands has an old familiar friend back again – the metronomic background noise of pile driving.

With a brief layoff following the global financial crisis, the ground is again being prepared for construction.

Lend Lease has broken ground with its Convesso project in Victoria Harbour and sold half of its Serrata development on its first weekend of sales on June 26 and 27.

Over at NewQuay, MAB Corporation has started its H1 apartment block.  

MAB has started discussions with the Government over plans for a mixed use development on a site known as Lot 1B and the Conder Plaza. It has also been talking about a residential tower known at this stage simply as H2.

In NewQuay West, its Avenues project is progressing, as is its affordable housing development on the corner of Pearl River Rd and Docklands Drive.  Of the 113 units being developed, 85 will be managed by Melbourne Affordable Housing.

At the other end of the scale, and on the opposite side of Docklands, Mirvac has residents moving into the first of its River precinct apartments at Yarra’s Edge and has announced a new round of luxury apartments, with some priced at more than $6 million.

Also on Yarra’s Edge, Mirvac has lodged plans with the Government for construction of its Tower 8.

Down behind the Stadium next to Wurunjeri Way, PanUrban’s Lacrosse development is starting. Salta Properties has also applied for permission to build in its site at 699 La Trobe St.

On the other side of the stadium, CBUS has won the right to build 60,000 square metres more for Dockland’s stalwart NAB.  The site is alongside Wurunjeri Way between the stadium and the pedestrian concourse.

And, of course, work continues on the second stage of the Automotive Centre of Excellence in Batman’s Hill after a three-month delay to remediate a decommissioned sewer.
