About the project

St Kilda is a key destination for Melburnians and visitors, known for its foreshore, beach, night life, live music scene, restaurants and festivals. This part of Melbourne has always embraced cultural innovation, pushed social boundaries, and is a key part of the city’s cultural footprint.

Located in the heart of St Kilda, the St Kilda Triangle is a unique opportunity as one of Melbourne’s last bayside renewal sites.

The development of the Triangle is an integral part of the City of Port Phillip’s broader strategy to continue to revitalise St Kilda, one of Melbourne’s most loved destinations.

This St Kilda Triangle project comprises six stages, as outlined in the Roadmap for Co-Design (see below).

  • Stage 0 - Background: Create a vision and framework for the Triangle site and prepare technical reports.
  • Stage 1 - Refine the Parameters: Improve understanding between Council and the community about what is preferred and what should be avoided. Understand the financial implications of these choices.
  • Stage 2 - Collaborative Design: Through a co-design process, develop a fundable and deliverable Masterplan that is supported by the community and stakeholders.
  • Stage 3 - Planning, Advocacy and Staging: Prepare planning controls to facilitate the Masterplan, continue government advocacy, investigate project staging, prepare preliminary designs for possible early works and undertake market testing.
  • Stage 4 - Implementation: Select a preferred tenderer and delivery partner.
  • Stage 5 - Management: Open and manage the site as per the St Kilda Triangle Cultural Charter.
