Client // Vicinity Centres
GTA Office // Melbourne
As part of the ongoing evolution of Chadstone – The Fashion Capital, Make Architects designed a new covered pedestrian link for Vicinity Centres. The Link is a high-quality connection which includes travellators and stair connections and provides a seamless connection from the heart of the centre directly to the office and leisure (Chadstone Hotel) precinct. Marking a significant investment in walking within the precinct, an all-weather walkway now exists to the Princes Highway frontage providing best-in-class onward connections by foot to Chadstone’s customers and staff.
GTA Consultants guided the integration of the design into the surrounding transport infrastructure, leveraging our long-term and intimate knowledge of the site to maximise the customer experience for pedestrians and surrounding car park users. During design development the transport impacts of the project were documented to support the granting of a planning permit from the City of Stonnington. The project was approved, constructed and opened in November 2019 in line with Chadstone Hotel opening
