The purpose of the St Kilda Triangle Masterplan is to guide future development of the Triangle site through a set of parameters agreed with the community.

The Masterplan establishes a vision for the Triangle site and a framework that outlines where built form should be located on the site, the massing and size of that form, the character of the public realm and the connections to the broader precinct.

The Masterplan also sets out how the Triangle site could be funded and delivered to provide the highest quality outcomes for the local community and the people of Victoria.

The St Kilda Triangle Masterplan is not a final building or landscape design. The buildings and landscape design depicted in the plan are indicative only of the potential size and location of buildings, trees and spaces. These depictions do not necessarily represent how the Triangle site will look when constructed. Further design of buildings and landscape will be part of future project development.

The Masterplan does not change the status of current planning scheme controls. A planning scheme amendment is required to implement the St Kilda Triangle Masterplan.
