A REDEVELOPED FLINDERS STREET STATION A GREAT OPPORTUNITY

14 /12/ 2011 Comments are Closed

The plan to redevelop Melbourne’s iconic Flinders Street Station is a fantastic opportunity for the city. A revitalised station would also be another feather in Victoria’s cap.

Last month, the Baillieu Government announced a design competition calling for ideas to rejuvenate the precinct, including surrounding areas, to restore one of Melbourne’s most famous buildings to its past glory.

A redeveloped Flinders Street Station has the potential to provide world class hospitality and events facilities in historically significant surroundings.

The project should be visionary and ambitious as it provides a once in a lifetime opportunity to redevelop a historically significant and immensely recognisable landmark. This would benefit locals and visitors alike.

With the right mix of facilities, a redeveloped Flinders Street Station will become a visitor destination in itself.

There are great examples around the world of similar redeveloped precincts that have a combination of experiences for visitors. Take Grand Central Station in New York, for example; it has become a major tourist attraction with its mix of retail shops and dining areas while remaining a working train station.

Flinders Street Station’s once-magnificent ballroom would provide a boost for the Victorian events industry, providing another unique space to add to the already impressive list of locations for functions.

In the increasingly competitive convention and business events industry, a redeveloped Flinders Street Station would be another advantage we have over competitors.
