Loop facelift underway

05 May 2016

Loop facelift underway Image

Work has begun to transform the unused Power St Loop site next to the Domain Tunnel entrance near Sturt St.

A two-metre high fence with a banner was erected at the end of March, marking the beginning of earth and foundation works, which kicked off last month.

Following last year’s ideas competition, which called on the community to come up with creative ideas to transform the vacant site, the works are in preparation for the winning design entitled Habitat Filter (pictured).

The judging panel included representatives from the City of Melbourne, Landcare Australia, Victorian College of the Arts and Creative Victoria.

The team of Melbourne-based designers, which won the competition, described its winning design as a “working sculpture within a landscape” that aimed to be both self-functioning and complementary to the nearby Arts Precinct.

A CityLink spokesperson said works would be carried out during normal construction hours, between 7am and 4pm. If required, some work may also occur on weekends.

The project is expected to be completed by the end of this year.
