Council apprehensive over the revamped 939-apartment 8 Hopkins Street

Hot on the heels of the news that a further 380 apartments have been approved within Footscray's Joseph Road Precinct, 8 Hopkins Street has re-emerged under the guidance of a new developer/architect combination. After the site's sale via a public EOI campaign, St Kilda Road-based Golden Asset Group now maintains control over the 13,000sqm land holding, with Kavellaris Urban Design responsible for the redrawn plans which seeks approval for 939...

Urban Melbourne has in the past lamented the state of flux that had settled upon Footscray's Joseph Road Precinct; 15 hectares of private landholdings and public areas set for intense urban regeneration. With no obvious intent from local developers to kick start proceedings and a distinct lack of infrastructure investment in the area, progress was non-existent. During 2014 a rash of site sales within the precinct coincided with the influx of...

The impetus for this article is news this week the first major apartment project for the area (approved over three years ago) has been put on the...
