Page 4 of the planning app for 421-433 High Street gives a great overview of the density increase that has occurred in this corridor. https://www.darebin.vic.gov.au/Files/12_Dec_2011_Item_5.13_Part_1_-_421-...

It's going to no doubt be responsible for patronage increases on both the South Morang line and the #86.

>> Commercial Gain

Going up in Preston

Darebin City Council has identified 35 hectares of under-utilised commercial land in Preston East to rezone for intense residential development - which may include the suburb's tallest buildings.

The zone, bound by Chifley Drive, Albert, Bell and Gower streets, is south of the Northland Shopping Centre, a public transport hub that successive state governments regard as a major activity centre.

Identified in a 2012 council study as under-occupied, the Preston East tract includes 19 blocks owned by 10 interests.

It accommodates 53 businesses employing 673 people.

Council plans to fit 13,000 occupants within the space - 7000 as workers and the balance as high-rise dwellers. Building height limits have not been imposed.

Nine kilometres north of the CBD, the area's highest profile and newest business is Masters hardware. One of the occupants, Cigweld employs just 41 staff, down from 1000 more than 10 years ago.

Wow what tripe! Ground breaking. A pre-cast box with fancy balcony thingies to cover up the even uglier railings.

Renderings are rather basic, I don't think they do it any favours. The raw gash on the building looks, um, interesting.

Salta Properties revives Preston Market project
SARAH DANCKERT OCTOBER 31, 2013

THE Tarascio family's Salta Properties is embarking on a $750 million redevelopment of Preston Market, in Melbourne's northern suburbs, five years after the project was waylaid by the global financial crisis.

Salta will develop the popular fresh produce market in conjunction with Medich Corporation.

Medich Corporation is run by Roy Medich, brother to Sydney property developer Ron Medich, who has no involvement in Medich Corporation.

Salta and Medich Corporation first announced plans to transform the market in 2008.

According to Salta's website, the development of the 4.3ha precinct will include a residential and retail complex. The traditional market will remain.

This is a massive development opportunity. It should be part of a larger project to put Preston and Bell Stations underground and remove the Bell Street, Murray Road and Cranmer Street level crossings.

Half-billion dollar overhaul for Preston Market

Preston Market, one of Melbourne's oldest traditional markets, is slated for a radical overhaul costed at half a billion dollars.
Proposals to build 28-storey apartment blocks on the market site, comprising 1500 new dwellings, have been lodged with Darebin Council, seeking an exemption to the current 10-storey height limit in the area.

Developers Salta Properties and project partner Medich Corporation proposed changing building height limits in order to build residential towers "which will respond to the forecasted growth of the municipality, and will provide greater housing diversity and housing sustainability for the area", according to documents prepared for the council.

The plans for the Preston Market include a piazza, outdoor dining areas, and an office precinct as well as apartments to complement the current fresh food market.

Darebin Council have decided to exhibit the amendments to the Preston Market Incorporated Plan but only wants to consider a preferred indicative height of 15 storeys for the site because 28 storeys just didn't sound right.

Elanor considers Melbourne hotel

Listed property investor Elanor ­Investors Group is circling the Bell City hotel and conference centre development in Preston.

Asian Pacific Group, which is the Deague family’s property development and investment group, are the current owners of the mixed-use venue 10 kilometres from Melbourne’s city centre and within 20 minutes drive of Tullamarine airport.

Sources close to both parties told The Australian Financial Review that a deal is not yet done, but the groups are in negotiations with discussions around a price higher than $100 million.

A source close to the asset indicated that at last valuation the property was worth more than $150 million.

It has 844 rooms and serviced apartments across three hotels including a Rydges, in addition to a substantial student accommodation, education, retail and hospitality and events facilities.

In recent months, the site has secured DA approval for an extension and upgrade that could add another 400 apartments to the complex.

Development & Planning

Brunswick's Anstey Precinct is in for a massive shot of development as Melbourne's Nightingale Housing plans seven separate buildings in a project that will be dubbed Nightingale Village. Already accustomed to urban renewal, the area surrounding Anstey Station is set to benefit from the unprecedented move by Nightingale Housing to develop what amounts to an entire street.

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.

Spring Street has released details of a large shutdown of the Pakenham/Cranbourne and Frankston lines which will allow workers to complete major upgrades to the rail infrastructure. The work is required to allow for the introduction of the new High Capacity Metro Trains (HCMTs) and will involve upgrading power & catenary, signalling and communications equipment in the Dandenong (Pakenham/Cranbourne) corridor.

Sustainability & Environment

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.
