Flemington Green is situated to the north of the existing grandstand facilities at Flemington Racecourse near the Hill Gate.
The site is some 29,898 sqm in area and is bounded by the Flemington Railway Station and Flemington Racecourse, the Melbourne Showgrounds and the Maribyrnong River valley sloping further to the west beyond the established residential area.
The current site is principally comprised of open lot car parks used for the Melbourne Cup Carnival and occasionally for other smaller events. On the southern boundary of the site, an original heritage Bluestone Wall marks the boundary of the Racecourse. The site is situated within the Flemington Rail Corridor, which is identified as an area with the potential for urban renewal.
The proposal for Flemington Green comprises of a multiple building solution transitioning in scale from the surrounding context.
With the inclusion of landscaped public open spaces and the reinforcement of Leonard Crescent into a vibrant and active village centre, Flemington Green will be a place for people to conveniently live, work and enjoy.
A series of smaller scale streets and laneways carefully integrate the proposal into surrounding neighbourhoods, offering new choice and opportunities to the existing community.
