The final version of the University Square Master Plan was presented to and adopted by the Future Melbourne Committee on Tuesday 6 December 2016.

The University Square Master Plan is a blueprint for the future that will restore a failing landscape and create new spaces to better serve the local community including residents, workers and university students. The Master plan will be implemented over a six year period, staged to respond to the construction requirements of the new Parkville Station as part of the Melbourne Tunnel Project.
