Could it be the redevelopment of the wharfs (those expo88 remanant restaurants) near the goodwill bridge? What ever happened to that project?

That could be true, and if it is I am very hopeful!

I was just thinking, $300M is a lot of Moolah for a project in South Bank...we should be expecting something special for the area!

Maritime museum and dry dock is heritage and should remain.

Glad to hear it's the Vulture St station area, pity it doesn't include development above and refurbishing the train station.

I would have loved to have seen a modern building envelope the old train station, similar to what they did with Melbourne Central.

Execept....it should. The whole idea is that the building will be built over the station, that's why the air rights come part of the deal.

that's fine - didn't notice dan's comment. But the official line from the press release is:

“The successful developer will be required to design the new buildings to allow a podium level to be constructed over the rail corridor at a later date.”

I thought some company, or maybe it was QR, sold the rights to someone recently to partially build over the lines.
