Precinct 5: Holmes – Transitional Office and Residential


Recommendations

Built Form

  • Preferred building heights ranging between 15m and 22m, with mandatory Floor Area Ratio of 3:1 and 3.5.1. Increased heights will occur alone the railway line so to retain the residential character of the rest of the precinct

Streetscape

  • More tree planting:
    • Boulevard tree planting to frame a key western gateway into MPAC
    • Between on-street car parking bays
  • Enhanced pedestrian experience along Holmes Road with street furniture, planter pots, new street lighting, and space for footpath trading

Access and Movement

  • Improved pedestrian safety by:
    • Installing ‘smart intersections’ at the Holmes Street/Puckle Street and Puckle Street/Mt Alexander Road intersections
    • Shared area for bicycles and vehicles
