La Scala Edgewater
A significantly large, strategically located site at the northern end of a former Defence force site, the Edgewater Estate, La Scala, comprises an integrated residential development of over 200 dwellings across 6 separate buildings.
The site sits on the Maribyrnong River escarpment, overlooking the river valley and the popular Pipemaker’s Park below.
Working closely with Beyo Group, SJB Urban and the City of Maribyrnong, a design response cascading down the river escarpment was conceived enabling the delivery of a development which exceeded the planning scheme’s building height and dwelling density controls.
This was achieved whilst ensuring the resulting built form sat comfortably within the special escarpment landscape, adjacent to the historically significant ‘Jacks Magazine’ and opposite the already established residential development in Edgewater.
SJB Planning lead the client and project team through the initial consultation and design phases, subsequently preparing and lodging requisite development plans and planning permit applications. The project received the support and approval of the City of Maribyrnong without the need for any Tribunal hearing.
