Following successful delivery of the St Kilda Promenade, JCB was engaged to develop a master plan for the redevelopment of the St Kilda Harbour and Pier.
The master plan incorporates the development of new and existing infrastructure for recreation and commercial boating, events and entertainment, as well as linkages to the foreshore. It accommodates a number of different user groups across a cohesive and inclusive design including boat repair and storage to ferry terminal with relevant concessions, a storage area below used by the junior yacht club and a rooftop observation deck.
The master plan assists to protect the cultural, heritage, ecological and functional qualities of the harbour, while accommodating necessary change to make it viable into the future.
A key element within the master plan proposes the reconstruction of the St Kilda Pier, with integrated wave protection devices that create a new public sea-bath within the pier itself.
