Precinct 3: Young – Mixed Use Precinct


Recommendations

Built Form

  • Preferred building heights ranging between 15m and 43m, with mandatory Floor Area Controls ranging between 3:1 and 4.5:1

Open Space

  • Opportunities for public open space:
    • As part of the redevelopment of one of the large sites (sites above 2,000m2)
    • Public plaza in St Aidan’s Lane
    • Pocket park at the end of Phillips Arcade
    • Extension of two-way local access route to the southern end of Pratt Street
    • Consolidated car parking facility

Young Street

  • More attractive public realm along Young Street through generous footpaths and continuous and consistent tree planting. This will require achieving building setbacks of a minimum of 3m.
  • Improved walkability by creating raised shared areas on key pedestrian intersections such as the Young Street/Pratt Street and Young Street/Ascot Vale Road intersections, and activating laneways
  • Relocation of some on-street car parking along the southern end of Young Street
  • Shared vehicle and bicycle area

Gladstone Street

  • Sensitive interfaces to the residential properties on Gladstone Street achieved through providing landscaped setbacks (minimum 3m)
  • Widened central median along Gladstone Street, including continuous and consistent larger canopy tree planting and integrated water sensitive urban design measures
  • Improved pedestrian safety through the use of ‘smart intersections’ at the Gladstone Street/Ascot Vale Road intersection
  • Bicycle lanes

We want to know if you agree and if you have any other ideas. What changes would you like to see for Young Street, Pratt Street, and Gladstone Street?
