Frankston’s Station Street Mall has cemented its status as a beacon of pride and a symbol of the city’s transformation in winning the Civil Landscape category at the 2021 Australian Institute of Landscape Architects National Awards.

“This project is a beautiful refurbishment of (the) mall,” the AILA said. “Its careful consideration of minor and major constraints, fine detailing and opportunistic creativity all contribute to this clever piece of water-sensitive urban design. Brilliant elements such as the central connecting swale and non-prescriptive spaces combined with a wonderfully designed and executed timber decking and soft lighting provide the industry with a great civic design precedent and give Frankston locals and visitors a special space to enjoy.”

The mall earlier this year received the Award for Excellence in the Civic Landscape category at the AILA’s Victorian awards.

Frankston City Council CEO Phil Cantillon said the mall’s upgrade included timber decking with public seating, outdoor dining, planting and lighting. “A range of smaller and larger spaces are framed around vibrant garden beds, offering something for everyone and helping to organise different activities in the mall,” Mr Cantillon said. “The timber deck is designed to support the activities of the adjacent businesses while also providing ample public seating around the circular garden beds. Public lighting has been upgraded to improve safety at night with suspended festoon lighting that hangs from centrally located light poles.”

Robinsons Bookshop CEO Susanne Horman said the revitalised mall had brought people back to the city centre and was now a meeting place for people coming in to the CBD. “As the owner of a business that has been in Station St for over 30 years, it is exciting to welcome people back that we haven’t seen for years,” Ms Horman said. “On a sunny day under the yellow umbrellas of the local cafes, it feels like you are on holidays and you can relax for a bit and watch the amazing people of Frankston walk by.”

Cr David Asker acknowledged major contributions of $360,000 from the State Government and $100,000 from Vicinity Centres for the upgrade.
