The development boom in Melbourne has left the streets grey and gloomy, being covered in fences but now the unsightly construction fencing and hoarding around Melbourne’s sites will be getting beautified by local artists, according to plans by the city council.
Recently heritage advocates and city planners called for new rules to compel developers to make their construction hoardings look better.
A facade covering hoarding at Curtin House was designed by Melbourne Creative Studio Open Season and is a taste of things to come around Melbourne in the future.
The manager of the building’s rooftop bar said the building needed a colourful facade while it underwent renovations.
A proposal discussed at Melbourne City Council’s meeting recently recommends current hoarding permit criteria be altered to make it mandatory for developers to make their hoarding attractive if it is in place for more than 12 weeks.
