Intensifying Places: Transit-oriented Urban Design for Resilient Australian Cities

This project developed and tested a range of urban design frameworks and visions for urban intensification in Melbourne. The focus was on transit-oriented development, design quality and  design issues at the interface between intensified places and surrounding suburban neighbourhoods. The project also investigated the forms of governance most suited to effective implementation of transit-oriented development to achieve community acceptance and quality outcomes. A series of case studies covering various types and scales of activity centre was investigated using design research approaches.

The final report INTENSIFYING MELBOURNE: Transit-Oriented Urban Design for Resilient Urban Futures (PDF, 17.65MB) was published in November 2014.
