High-rise heaven

A Singaporean architecture practice has released its competition entry for the approved redevelopment of Kavanagh Park.

While Cox Architecture won the competition, architect Benoy has released designs for what might-have-been at the 20,000 sqm Kavanagh St site.

Developer PJ Development Holdings won approval from the State Government in February to construct six towers on the site, which has long been a car park.

Benoy’s entry for the site had proposed a “family of five towers”, one of which was designed at 300m.

While its entry wasn’t victorious, it’s an interesting look at the proposed extraordinary looking cluster of towers.

In what was its first competition entry in Melbourne, Benoy divisional director Terence Seah said his practice had enjoyed the opportunity to enter a pitch for such a major development.

“This was a fantastic opportunity for our team to demonstrate our creative force in Australia. We wanted to use this competition to show our ability in designing integrated environments and sustainable communities,” he said.

The winning $1.5 billion project that won approval from Planning Minister Richard Wynne will consist of four apartment towers, one commercial tower and one hotel and serviced apartment tower.

The six towers will range from 145m to 226m in height and will carry rooftop gardens.
