Tribeca Project, East Melbourne

In the face of Melbourne's warming climate, our trees are the necessary ingredient to creating an urban cool green oasis at this residential apartment complex in East Melbourne.

Called a greening transformation by the City of Melbourne, we were pleased to contribute these glorious looking 'Luscious' Tristaniopsis laurina and 'Jerilderie Red' Brachychiton to enhance the shopping and living experiences of residents here.

Previously this connecting alleyway between Albert Street and Victoria Street was a hot concrete thoroughfare and the set of buildings incorporating significant public and private paved space had little greenery to offset heat from the hard, built-up environment.

Not any more, thanks to plans developed by the City of Melbourne which were funded under its Urban Forest Fund initiative.

The community and environmental benefits of the project can be found here.
