Urbis’ work with John Holland Group’s (JHG) illustrates the depth of our multidisciplinary expertise.

Urbis partnered with JHG on their bid to redevelop stations and remove level crossings at Burke Road near Gardiner Railway Station and on the Caulfield to Dandenong rail corridor. The Victorian Government allocated more than $2 billion for removing the level crossings as part of a larger project that included building new stations. JHG sought Urbis’ help to demonstrate how it could provide the best chance to ‘value capture’ – recover some or all the value that public infrastructure generates for owners if successful.

Urbis’ experience and expertise provides valuable input in identifying and assessing value capture opportunities for infrastructure projects.

Urbis was responsible for assessing and validating the uplift created by the redevelopment of surplus land on the rail corridor, making recommendations on suitable developments, and providing valuation and a feasibility analysis to quantify the value capture. We also provided planning, urban design and landscape architectural services from concept development through to construction delivery support.

The project involved collaboration between our Real Estate Advisory, Property Economics & Research, Planning and Design teams.
