International firm Benoy has unveiled Kavanagh Street, its competition proposal for a mixed-use tower development in Melbourne, Australia. Set back on the banks of the Yarra River in the Southbank precinct, Benoy’s design is a five-building set or a “family of towers” on a shared nine-story mixed-use podium, all of which would host 315,000 square meters of residential, hospitality, commercial and retail space. Bringing together corporate offices, lifestyle showrooms, premium high-rise living, a hotel, serviced apartments, shopping, dining, green spaces, facilities and public transportation; the concept creates a vertical urban community. In order to achieve flexibility and meet the changing market’s demands, the proposal additionally incorporates modularity.
