Heritage Victoria has approved further developments to the former Richmond Maltings site mixed-use development in Cremorne, Victoria.

Caydon Property Group has proposed a two-stage residential and commercial development for Caydon’s Malt District.

The new plans include the restored and working Nylex clock above the extruded concrete silos.

The Victorian Civil and Administrative Tribunal (VCAT) approved stage one of the development proposal last year.

A major feature of the revised plans is the retention of a majority of the concrete silos under the Nylex clock that were previously earmarked for demolition.

Jarrod Stratton, Caydon chief operations officer said the determination is significant because having agreement with Heritage Victoria on the heritage aspects of this important urban renewal site means we can confidently move forward on a project that has already captured significant public interest.

“We’ve listened to Heritage Victoria’s concerns about the original plans, and through constructive dialogue and collaboration have a consensus that includes further heritage retention, whilst still delivering our vision for the Malt District and a viable urban renewal project," he said.

"We will continue to consult and work closely with Heritage Victoria and other government officials on the remaining aspects of our plans, and appreciate their ongoing collaboration regarding this state-significant project.

"Retaining and restoring the significant heritage fabric of this site has always been a priority for Caydon, as has been returning the famous Nylex clock to working order for Melburnians to once again enjoy.

"We are now an important step closer to the Nylex clock being re-lit as a focal point of a great new destination for people to live, work and enjoy.”
