Ground Control was engaged in 2018 by Pellicano Builders to provide landscape design and documentation services to the public open space for the Ballarat Station Precinct Redevelopment.
The redevelopment centred on the Heritage Goods Shed immediately north of the Ballarat Train Station. As part of the urban renewal of the precinct, the Goods Shed, built in 1863, will be converted into a conference and exhibition centre with an associated public plaza and external events area.
Completing the precinct redevelopment is a 77 room apartment hotel, a multi-storey secure commuter carpark, a bus interchange/public transport hub, other parking areas, access roads, pedestrian spaces, shade trees and amenity landscape.
The multi-storey carpark was completed in 2019, with the apartment hotel and Goods Shed under construction in 2020.
