More than 2800 apartments to be built at Fishermans Bend

MORE than 2800 new apartments will be built in Fishermans Bend following approval of five planning permits.

Planning Minister Matthew Guy has approved the construction of 11 towers in the Montague precinct of the area, between Southbank and South Melbourne.

The five permits relate to four sites on Buckhurst and Gladstone streets, South Melbourne, and a 40-storey tower in Normanby Rd, Southbank.

The Government had set aside 240 hectares south of the Yarra River for urban renewal.

“Fishermans Bend will be a key driver of Melbourne’s strength and liveability over the coming decades,” Mr Guy said.

The construction is worth $738 million and the developers will have to pay more than $44 million to the government in development contributions.

Six towers will be built on Buckhurst St, four of which will be 27 to 30 storeys.

Another four towers will be built on Gladstone St, all up to 30 storeys.

Chip Eng Seng on song

Singapore-listed developer Chip Eng Seng has bought a development site in South Melbourne as it looks to cash in on demand for more apartment projects.

The company has just contracted to buy a site for $52 million through a newly incorporated subsidiary, CES Gladstone. The proposed development would be worth more than $400m as it could comprise 730 units.

Chip Eng Seng is buying the site via a direct deal with Melbourne-headquartered BPM Corp, the Australian developer founded by Jonathan Hallinan.

Speaking exclusively to The Australian yesterday Mr Hallinan said he bought the site about a year ago for slightly more than $37m, when it was offloaded by MAB Corp.

He said Chip Eng Seng’s price “was a price that we could not say no to”. Mr Hallinan said he had spent little on the site that he bought with a development permit in place. There were other apartment sites available in Melbourne, which were more suited to his ultra luxury apartment brand, he said.

Situated at 15-85 Gladstone Street in South Melbourne, the 5984sq m site is in the Fishermans Bend urban renewal area 10km from Melbourne’s city centre.

After buying the site BPM amended the development proposal adding more apartments to the project.

Development & Planning

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.

The marriage of old and new can be a difficult process, particularly when the existing structure has intrinsic heritage value. In previous times Fitzroy's 237 Napier Street served as the home of furniture manufacturer C.F. Rojo and Sons. Taking root during 1887, Christobel Rojo oversaw operations though over time the site would become home to furniture manufacturer Thonet.

The former site of John Batman's home, Batman's Hill is entering the final stages of its redevelopment. Collins Square's final tower has begun its skyward ascent, as has Lendlease's Melbourne Quarter Commercial and Residential precinct already. Melbourne Quarter's first stage is at construction and involves a new 12-storey home for consultancy firm Arup along with a skypark.

Infrastructure Victoria unveiled a new round of research into its larger programme of work dealing with managing transport demand. The authority contracted Arup and KPMG to produce the Melbourne Activity Based Model (MABM) and while it is new, it is considered fit for purpose in the strategic context.

Cbus Property's office development for Medibank at 720 Bourke Street in Docklands recently became the first Australian existing property to receive a WELL Certification, Gold Shell and Core rating. The WELL rating goes beyond sustainable building features with a greater focus on the health and well-being of a building's occupants.
