A vibrant, mixed-use precinct close to the Yarra River and connected to Melbourne’s CBD, Docklands
and emerging renewal areas
Lorimer, together with the Yarra’s Edge Precinct in Docklands, offers the opportunity to strengthen Melbourne’s
identity as a river city.
River crossings for walking, cycling and public transport continue the legacy of connecting Melbourne to the riverfront – linking Fishermans Bend to Docklands, the CBD, and further afield.
New laneways connect residents and workers directly to Lorimer Street through to the Yarra River. This high density, mixed-use precinct is centered on the creation of a central parkland and is stitched together with a linear
green spine and landscaped pedestrian and cycling links.
This will create an important public transport, recreational link and biodiversity corridor linking to the adjacent
Ingles Street connects Lorimer directly to the proposed commercial centre in Sandridge and also the future Bolte
West Precinct along the Yarra River. Taller buildings are located closer to the freeway forming a well-designed
backdrop to the precinct.
