The Murdoch University lease/ Crown Grant covers over 220 hectares of land on South Street in the City of Melville. CD+P staff played a pivitol role within a multidisciplinary team responsible for preparing a Master Plan and exploring development options for expanding and diversifying the land uses on the Murdoch University land holding.
The main objective of the project is to create a modern, integrated, sustainable, vibrant and active University campus which strives for academic excellence and responds to commercial opportunities and business opportunities to support the on-going growth and development of the University. The Master Plan consolidates the existing campus, maximises pedestrian and public transport accessibility and promotes a range of development opportunities that have a strong relationship to the University.
The model used for Murdoch University has been one of full integration and environmental, economic and social sustainability. The Master Plan will essentially provide a long term vision for Murdoch University land holdings and provide a framework for well planned sustainable development which encourages a diversified mix of land uses.
