3. HARBOUR TOWN

A multi-million dollar transparent roof canopy providing shelter from the elements is the first in a series of upgrades set to begin at Harbour Town Melbourne. In addition to the expansive roof canopy that will cover Star Crescent and Wharf Street, the mall facades and shopping amenities will also be redeveloped. As part of the overhaul, customer pathways around the centre will be improved and a number of under utilised pedestrian bridges and escalators removed, which will allow for the creation of two major plazas that will serve as event spaces and interaction hubs. The unique canopy that will provide shelter to the centre was conceptualised by global design firm, The Buchan Group.

6. 695-699 LA TROBE STREET

The 383-apartment tower on the corner of LaTrobe Street and Harbour Esplanade will rise 92 metres above the ground, rather than the 75-metre discretionary limit on the site, after Salta and architects Fender Katsalidis made changes that would let more light into the apartments and would front retail and office space to the street on upper levels, rather than car parking.
