Docklands, Melbourne

Eeles Trelease was commissioned by Mirvac to masterplan the second stage of their Yarras Edge Project, in collaboration with Mirvac Design.  The two towers 9 + 10 drive the layout as they are on axis with Bourke Street and hence very visible from the CBD. The main civic plaza, ferry and bus stops are located between these highly articulated towers. A mixed-use (commercial and residential) development completes the scheme. Mid-rise buildings and plazas form the urban idea, with stepped section buildings optimising views of the city and river. Feeder roads off Lorimer Street connect the buildings to the city grid.
