The Common will be a cool, green entry statement that embraces the heritagelisted 1920s Peters Ice Cream Factory. It will be a 1585sq m, 24-hour public space designed to draw in pedestrians and provide a focal point for the residents of West Village and the broader West End community. The Common will also feature a water play area. Four public laneways are also proposed with landscaped market gardens and bicycle parking stands.
The new works will also include a community space, to be known as the Centre Activities Space, for uses such as an art gallery, conference space, fitness classes, dance classes, theatre or cinema.
