Odgers Lane revamp kicks off

odgers lane

There are high hopes that Odgers Lane in the Melbourne Building’s central courtyard (currently home to parking and smelly skips) can be transformed into our answer to Little Collins Street.

The Economic Development Directorate is detailing the process, and have published a timetable.

The new line markings are certainly very shiny. We look forward to seeing how this goes.

isn’t that where club x has a back entrance?

When it first opened there, we used to have a quiet chuckle about how there was a cop office right next door, literally. Only in Canberra…

desperate old men, please head to mitchell or fyshwick!

I suspect that when there is no longer a ‘discrete rear entrance’ *snigger*, the girls working in the nudie booths will suffer a significant drop in income.

Those little laneway developments work very well in Melbourne. and that back area is actually rather nice, with the old brickwork and giant plane trees. Our office used to open out onto it, and we’d sit out there with our after-work beers and enjoy it thoroughly. Regarding smelly bins, smaller bins with more frequent emptying would be needed, especially in summer.

Now where will staff cars and smelly bins go?

Well the smelly bins will be enclosed in a more aesthetically pleasing cage. However, they’ll still be smelly bins in a back alley.

Considering there seems to be a few empty shopfronts and stores in Civic (garema place etc) it’s good to see we want to use old laneways because it is more ‘hip’! Hahaha!
But then, won’t people complain because we’re coping Melb – again (see thread on Honlytonks…)
…And where are people who hook up for a one-nighter at 2am supposed to shag now?? 🙂

This will be cool if it works and hopefully lead to other lanes getting similar treatment.

…but potentially it could be terrible..
