Sandridge will become a major commercial and office hub of Fishermans Bend.
Highly urbanised and pedestrianised, it will evolve as a vibrant location for business, education, shopping and living. A future metro station will connect Sandridge to the CBD and other transport links.
Apartment living and business activity will exist side by side. Towers – no higher than 18 storeys – will offer views to the CBD and across to the bay. Quality design will make homes stylish with attention given to street-level appeal.
Beautifully designed public spaces along two key pedestrian and public transport routes – the Plummer St and Ingles St “spines” – will enhance new development.
Plummer St forms the key east-west spine through Fishermans Bend with Ingles St forming a north-south connection from North Melbourne through Lorimer and southeast to the Domain Interchange (St Kilda Rd).
A series of plazas along the Plummer St “spine” will be used for important civic functions and other community events.
A wide range of community services and facilities will be created, along with spaces and places for people to catch up.
The historic North Port Oval will be a key open space in the neighbourhood. A range of formal gardens, pocket parks and urban squares will complement these playing fields.
Along with Wirraway and Montague, Sandridge is part of the City of Port Phillip.
Sandridge was an early name for Port Melbourne and was given by surveyor William Drake when he prepared maps of the shoreline of Port Phillip Bay in 1836.
