ClarkeHopkinsClarke to design Melbourne’s next satellite city

August, 2016

We’re excited to announce that ClarkeHopkinsClarke have been appointed as Lead Architect, working closely with urban planners, Roberts Day on Cloverton, an urban development project by Stockland that is expected to be the largest masterplanned community developed in Victoria.

Located 35km north of Melbourne’s CBD, Cloverton will cover an area similar to that of South Melbourne, Southbank, Docklands, Melbourne CBD, North Melbourne and Carlton combined. The development will include a vibrant city centre focused around the natural feature of Merri Creek. It will become a major employment area including education, health, retail and cultural infrastructure. Innovative delivery methods are being employed to ensure the development is serviced by a dedicated train station.

Partners Dean Landy and Jordan Curran are savouring this opportunity to put ClarkeHopkinsClarke’s Creating Vibrant Communities approach into practice on such a large scale. 

Landy explained, “Cloverton presents an incredible opportunity to be part of a team that is creating a smart, walkable, people focused city from scratch.”
