Forum a success

Forum a success Image

More than 50 local residents and workers attended the Riverside Quay Place renewal forum at the Malthouse Theatre on Wednesday, June 17.

The City of Melbourne in conjunction with developer Mirvac, hosted the event in order to work with locals to form a vision for the public open space.

Yarra River Business Association executive officer Tim Bracher attended the forum and said the project provided a great opportunity for Southbank.

“The redevelopment of Riverside Quay provides a great opportunity to create a more intimate, softer and potentially greener public space in the heart of the precinct, which can be enjoyed by workers and residents,” he said.

“Activation of the ground levels of the buildings facing the park and the laneways in between will enliven it and provide greater security.  What we don’t want is a repeat of Queensbridge Square.”

Southbank Residents Group president Tony Penna praised organisers for engaging with the local community.

“It was good to see a good number of residents from the immediate vicinity of the development provide feedback and ideas in the public consultation,” he said.

“This project is a great opportunity for a functional space to enhance the area and bring together the broad diaspora of people who are likely to utilise this space.”

“We will continue to work with all stakeholders to try to get the best outcome for Southbank and its residents.”

The findings and feedback from the consultation and initial research will help form the Riverside Quay draft master plan.

Both the City of Melbourne and Mirvac declined to comment on the public consultation when contacted by Southbank Local News.
