Pakington St Offices and Retail
Category: Commercial / Retail
Description:New two storey development on the corner of Pakington and Mervyn Streets in Newtown. Construction on this busy intersection required close consultation with the City of Greater Geelong to ensure protection of the public was maintained and disruption to traffic was minimised.
The development provided 8 retail spaces at street level with 5 offices on the first floor, all with private balconies overlooking Pakington or Mervyn Streets. At the rear of the property, there is a new concrete carpark with 35 spaces.
Significant challenges were overcome throughout this project with poor existing soil conditions, working within a constricted site, and constructing to and over the boundaries on all four sides.
