This multi-staged streetscape urban renewal project involved the redevelopment of public realm spaces from the Prahran Station on Porter Street to King Street (East End). With the project expected to be delivered over a five year period, Stage 1 – the Grattan Street Gardens was completed in mid-2016. The primary design philosophy for this project focused on providing a new simple, bohemian but elegant pedestrian environment.

Project challenges:

  • Highly complex existing services
  • Overhead high voltage cabling undergrounding
  • Complex grading design to obtain DDA compliance to thresholds of existing buildings
  • Coordination with Public Transport Victoria around Prahran Station
  • Liaison with Melbourne Water to understand and manage the existing flooding conditions on site
