Tick for Batman’s Hill

03 Sep 2014

Tick for Batman’s Hill Image

The City of Melbourne has expressed conditional support for the first of the Batman’s Hill buildings.

The planned commercial buildings came before the Future Melbourne Committee meeting on August 5 and councillors unanimously agreed to support the proposed development subject to a few conditions.

The two mid-rise commercial towers were discussed at last month’s Future Melbourne meeting and are proposed to be built over a raised ground plane, fronting Collins St.

Construction of the two buildings would also see the development of a new east-west pedestrian lane called Market Place Lane, the first stages of a new public road running north-south and a lift providing access from Aurora Lane to the western end of Market Place Lane.

Conditions outlined in the officer’s report included concern about the design and appearance of the proposed buildings and redesign of the lift entrance and lift setback from Aurora Lane which, according to the report, creates an “awkward entry space” which was considered to be unsafe and disconnected from Aurora Lane.

Lend Lease secured development rights for the 2.5 hectare Batman’s Hill site in August last year and plans to build two mid-rise office building, two high-rise office buildings, two mid-rise apartment towers, two high-rise residential towers and a strata office building.
