The landscape aim for Racecourse Road Mixed Use Development is to provide a landscape treatment that enhances the contemporary architecture of the development, integrate it with the surrounding context and make a positive contribution to the user amenity of the area.
The Landscape intent reflects the contemporary architecture.
Landscape buffers include small trees, shrubs and groundcovers meeting Council’s requirements. The use of native plant species ensures a drought tolerant solution requiring minimal maintenance.
Shaded areas of the internal concourse and walkways provide opportunities for lush subtropical planting incorporating a mix of native and exotic species.
Part of the Concourse incorporates a greenwall to further soften the built form and provide a point of visual interest. Climbers also soften walls and maximise the use of space.
Streetscape treatment to Racecourse Road and Beatrice Terrace integrates the site with the surrounding street context in accordance with the guidelines for the Racecourse Road Precinct SCIP (Suburban Centres Improvement Project) treatment.
