Central Dandenong's lot 10 - new 14 level residential proposal

Designed by Bruce Henderson Architects, the proposal includes 14 levels with ground floor retail and over 100 apartments.  Orion Group International is the proponent.

A spokesperson for Orion confirmed more than 50% of the building's apartments will have a 2 bedroom configuration and a healthy number of 1 and 3 bedroom configurations.

Lot 10 is located on the opposite side of Foster Street from Dandenong Station and the site has frontpages to the new Settlers Square and Halpin Way.  The proposal, if approved, would rise in between the new ATO and Dandenong station.

The planning application is before and will be decided upon by City of Greater Dandenong.

Context

Revitalising Central Dandenong is a Bracks-Brumby era project that kicked off in 2006 and is expected to see a multi-site redevelopment of the southern and south-western corners of Central Dandenong over a 15-20 year timeframe.

Development Victoria partners with City of Greater Dandenong, other state government agencies and the private sector to move the area's vision forward.

Approximately one-half of development sites have been built-out or have proposals or construction underway as illustrated by this Development Victoria diagram.

To date the majority of sites along Walker Street have been built on with City of Greater Dandenong, the state government through its Government Services Office (GSO) and the ATO all housed in new office accommodation.  

A new Quest hotel-accommodation building has recently been completed and the Salvation Army is set to move into a new building further west along Walker/George Street.

According to publicly accessible information, no proposals have been lodged for the Little India precinct thus far.
