Project overview

Brunswick Mechanics Institute

Council is undertaking the design for the Brunswick Mechanics Forecourt and Brunswick Town Hall Forecourt, as an action from the Brunswick Structure Plan.

The project aims to to enhance the civic and cultural focus of the precinct, and to improve the public realm of these civic buildings.  

The draft concept plan for the space includes:

  • New timber decking
  • Upgrades to forecourt paving
  • Improved lighting
  • Landscaping, including lawn and rain gardens to address the urban heat island effect
  • Footpath upgrade including feature paving and new kerb and channel
