The City of Melbourne has endorsed the appointment of a multidisciplinary design consortia led by T.C.L and ASPECT Studios to design all five precincts of the ambitious, city-shaping project and deliver the Greenline Project Master Plan.
The Greenline Project is a transformative vision for the North Bank of the Yarra River – Birrarung, creating a 4-kilometre promenade of parks, open spaces, cultural activations and environmental renewal between Birrarung Marr and the Bolte Bridge.
“The Greenline Project is a transformative vision for our city, and we’re thrilled to have two of Australia’s leading landscape architecture firms on board to help us make this vision a reality.”“The Greenline Project is a transformative vision for our city and we’re thrilled to have two of Australia’s leading landscape architecture firms on board to help us make this vision a reality.”

The project will be split into five inter-connected precincts – Birrarung Marr, The Falls, River Park, Maritime and Saltwater Wharf, all highlighting the area’s rich indigenous history.
The two firms will work together on each precinct site, collaborating with Council, State Government and key project partners to create a shared project vision. The appointment comes as the proposed concept design for the first precinct of the Greenline Project – Birrarung Marr – received glowing endorsement from community and businesses.
The Greenline Project is also expected to create more than 3,400 jobs during construction, more than 6,400 ongoing jobs by 2042, and attract more than 1.1 million additional visitors to the city every year.
