VicUrban,now Places Victoria, commissioned MvS to prepare urban design ‘frameworks’ visualising potential futures for Melbourne's Waterfront.

VicUrban, now Places Victoria, engaged us to investigate likely development outcomes at various future stages of the North West Precinct, Victoria Harbour and the Yarra Waters precincts.

Based on written master-plans, utilising three-dimensional visualisation tools and urban design skills and the work was used to market precincts to potential developers and were also realised as physical models for public exhibition and comment.

An understanding of urban and development economics and an accurate representation of the resultant urban forms were required to establish a balance between desired heights, aesthetics, activated edges and net and gross floor areas which were then represented in images showing the urban fabric changing over time.
