Wharf rebuild

29 Oct 2015

Places Victoria expects to begin rebuilding wharves along Harbour Esplanade in the first half of next year.

The urban renewal authority is currently waiting on approval from the State Government in order to proceed with the work.

“Construction to rebuild the wharves either side of Central Pier on Docklands’ Harbour Esplanade is planned to begin in early to mid 2016, subject to Places Victoria receiving approval from the State Government,” Places Victoria general manager Simon Wilson said.

“Places Victoria is already working with all stakeholders in the vicinity to minimise disruption during the works and the Hortus café will continue to operate near the Cow Up A Tree public art during the works.”

Demolition and removal of wharves, which are more than a century old, started last November in preparation for Harbour Esplanade’s redevelopment.

According to Mr Wilson, the master plan for Harbour Esplanade will be realised in stages over the next 10 years, as funding becomes available.

“The Harbour Esplanade master plan includes plans for green open space, improved connections and a number of zones, including exhibition and events, water transport, heritage vessel and recreation zone featuring a water play area,” Mr Wilson said.

“There is potential for some buildings, such as restored heritage sheds, where people can buy an ice-cream or visit a gallery, which we know from community engagement is what people want to do along Harbour Esplanade.”

“The community will continue to have the opportunity to provide feedback on future stages of Harbour Esplanade’s redevelopment.”
