The redesign of the public spaces of City Street and Station North Plaza is part of the rejuvenation of Central Dandenong. The vision for City Street is to provide a pedestrian prioritised contemporary urban space distinct by its greenery and engaging street life. City Street will be the heart of Dandenong’s dining precinct and will create a prime public realm link between Dandenong Railway Station and the city.
Station North Plaza, the centrepiece of Dandenong’s transport hub will provide an impressive entrance to Central Dandenong. Its contemporary design and functionality will demonstrate the new spirit of the city and Dandenong’s rich social culture. Public art is fully integrated into the streetscape design.
Innovative computer modelling techniques were used to generate and test the design. A range of environmentally sustainable design elements are embedded in the design. Most visibly, the large scale iconic light tower is energy efficient and water sensitive urban design is an expressed feature of the streetscape.
