Connecting Malls Project
There is significant investment from the private and public sectors driving major redevelopment in Frankston’s city centre.
The Station Mall Improvement project is part of the Victorian Government’s Frankston Station Precinct Redevelopment Master Plan to create better pedestrian connections, upgrade and activate laneways through to Young Street and Bayside Shopping Centre. The project will be delivered in partnership between Frankston City Council and State Government in consultation with key stakeholders.
The project will complement the recent Young Street upgrade and Frankston Station Upgrade, currently underway, to help reinforce Frankston as the Lifestyle Capital of Victoria.
There is an exciting opportunity to transform the Mall into safe, flexible and green public space that will encourage more high quality and diverse food and create a welcoming thoroughfare connecting the Station to Bayside and Shannon Mall.
The Community engagement phase raised important issues and provided valuable input. The design has been revised and developed to reflect the community’s aspirations. Thank you to everyone that provided feedback during the community engagement phase.
The final concept is on public exhibition for 2 weeks prior to the commencement of the detailed design phase, with construction scheduled for 2019.
Key features of the concept include:
- A retrofit approach to key elements to minimise construction disruption to traders and the community
- A new outdoor dining zone through the centre of the mall that caters for public and private outdoor dining activities
- New public seating to support everyday activation within the Mall and allow a place for people to eat outside without having to purchase from adjacent shops
- New mall lighting to create a vibrant and safe atmosphere
- New CCTV cameras to compliment the City Centres existing CCTV network
- Guidelines for outdoor dining infrastructure to ensure a consistent and unified character
- New green landscapes to mitigate the heat island effect via increased tree canopy, planted areas and use of native species where possible. The planting palette will reinforce connections to the Station precinct, define spaces within the mall, maintain passive surveillance view lines and strengthen local identity
- Areas for small events and programming to allow for a variety of uses and activities such as busking, cooking demonstrations and small food vendors
- Identified opportunities for façade improvements and integrated street art within the Mall.
