Jewell Station Village is a precinct of four residential developments and public realm works: Jewell Railway Station and surrounds; 27 Wilson Ave (Jewell Station); 17 Union Street; 1 Wilson Ave; and Nine Wilson Ave.
Developer Neometro believes that a strong community is key to living better and that Jewell Station Village is a unique example of community building within Melbourne’s rapidly growing urban fabric. The project is currently at an interesting stage of its development in that it is partially complete and partially under construction, and the community starting to form in the midst of it all is plain to see.
From a design perspective, many of Melbourne’s key architects and designers have had a hand in shaping the precinct; MAArchitects, Fieldwork, Design Office, BKK Architects, GLAS, Mud Office, Lovell Chen, Etched, and Clare Cousins Architects. The buildings have been designed and developed to complement each other, while maintaining their own unique character, with the assistance of the public realm works which act as a connective tissue. This precinct-driven process itself is a fascinating one, and will be shared on the OHM tours.
A series of tours of the projects at Jewell Station Village and associated public realm works. Participants will have the chance to ask questions and discuss the all the projects and the new precinct. Timed tours will be led by Neometro’s Lochlan Sinclair and Jeff Provan.
