Ideas put to test at Riverside Quay

Ideas put to test at Riverside Quay Image

A range of ideas were tested via temporary installations at Riverside Quay last month, as the City of Melbourne and developer Mirvac continue public consultation on the area’s future vision.

Held over a three-day period between Thursday, September 24 and Saturday, September 26, thousands passed through the event-testing site to sample a range of activities, stalls and installations.

A spokesperson for the project team said it developed the following key ideas that were tested via temporary installations:

  • A local urban park, one step back from the waterfront;
  • Different and flexible spaces and activities in the urban park;
  • A local market, tested through Melbourne Farmers’ Market stalls;
  • The exchange of locally-based goods to test possible future uses for the private laneways;
  • A more casual and relaxed connection from the promenade through to Riverside Quay (the street); and
  • A greener and softer space that draws from its heritage as wetland on the edge of the river.

The ideas trialled were developed in response to the “Place Vision” for Riverside Quay that had already been developed through earlier community consultation.

The feedback gained and lessons learned from the testing event will inform the development of a master plan, which is the next phase of work in the project.

A summary of the findings will be presented to the Riverside Quay Place Renewal Community Reference Group at its next meeting on Wednesday, October 14.
