The University of Melbourne (UoM) is developing a mixed use, multi-staged project, “Carlton Connect”, situated adjacent to the UoM Parkville campus. The precinct looks to create an open platform, establishing better connections between industry, business, government and the UoM. UoM has entered into a partnership with Lendlease and Urbanest to deliver the project.

Urbis was commissioned by Urbanest to undertake a Student Housing Market Study for the Carlton Connect Project in Melbourne, identifying key opportunities, market demand and risks of a mixed-use student housing development.

The project has development approval with construction set to commence in 2018 with completion expected by 2020.

Carlton Connect will be a globally recognised innovation precinct.
