CLICK TO VISIT THE COMMUNITY HUB 18 IN SEARCH OF A COMMUNITY VIBE Docklands Community Hub and Boating Facility, Melbourne Melbourne’s Docklands has experienced an unprecedented make-over since 2000. Not all of it winning the public’s hearts and minds. More recent developments—a library of considerable note and new community centre/boating hub—are finally invigorating the water end of Bourke and Collins Streets. Such projects, rather than wham-bam towers are vital set pieces in rounding out the true experience of place. A comparatively modest Community and Boating Hub may just signal a shift of gear from the rows of transplanted high-rise. Central to this small, vibrant project is Viridian’s performance glass to better bring the waterfront within reach of the everyday visitor.
