The application seeks approval for the construction of a multi-storey residential building with ground floor retail tenancies, loading/service facilities and a car parking podium. Two separated towers of 82 m and 49 m in height will rise above an eight-level podium, which curves around the radius of the Dudley Street/Wurundjeri Way corner. The development will contain 261 dwellings and 406 car parking spaces. Three hundred of the car spaces will be allocated to users of new buildings elsewhere in the precinct.
The swirl of development activity in Footscray has found another gear as new projects are submitted for approval, or are on the verge of beginning construction. Two separate planning applications have been advertised by Maribyrnong City Council; their subsequent addition to the Urban Melbourne Project Database has seen the overall number of apartment developments within Footscray in development swell to 40.
