From a list of ten architects invited to compete for five sites Minfie Nixon have been chosen unanimously by an expert design panel with representatives from RMIT University, the Department of Sustainability and Environment and Grocon to design a 10 level 1,000m2 floor plate building with retail at lower levels and commercial and/or residential above.
The significant CUB site at the north end of Melbourne's major civic axis has long stood vacant. Located on the corner of Swanston street and Queensbury street, the north eastern portion of Grocon's exciting Carlton Brewery development, this building will provide the important swanston street address to the northern end of the site, face two internal public spaces and hold congress with the existing Maltsore and the Queensbury Hotel, its immediate neighbours.
Grocon have submitted a planning scheme amendment to the Department of Sustainability and Environment which is expected to be incorporated by december when design work will commence on the commission.
