42 Moray Street and 11-13 Hancock Street, Southbank



DLA is currently providing statutory town planning services regarding the ‘Sol Invictus’ tower at 42 Moray Street and 11-13 Hancock Street, Southbank. The 60 storey mixed-use development proposal contains 341 dwellings as well as critical regional community infrastructure, including childcare facilities, a medical centre and offices. Situated adjacent to the Westgate Freeway, the development forms a part of the broader Southbank Urban Renewal Area and seeks to set a new benchmark for tower development in Melbourne.

The building itself is designed to be a landmark, and to set new benchmarks regarding ESD by way of cutting-edge mechanisms including architecturally-integrated solar panels that will offset a substantial portion of the development’s energy requirements. Myriad public realm upgrades – including offsite pocket parks, freeway underpass upgrades and an architecturally designed pocket plaza - are also proposed as a means of repositioning Southbank as a high quality, enjoyable public destination.

DLA is proud to provide ongoing planning advice and guidance in the this landmark project, which we believe will set a solid precedent for future development in Melbourne.
