Australian property developer JWLand has formally lodged its planning permit application with Moreland City Council to develop a 6,490 sqm mixed-use site in Brunswick.

The proposed development will comprises 255 apartments and 12 townhouses.

There will be one, two and three bedroom apartments and three and four bedroom townhouses.

On top of the residential components, the development will deliver two new community assets located on Brunswick Road, including a much-needed childcare facility.

Adjacent to the childcare facility, space in the building has been set aside for a new community hub, which JWLand proposes to give back to the local community via The Moreland City Council.

Anthony Cuzzupi, head of development for JWLand’s Victorian operations, said that the planning application represented a high quality architectural and urban design outcome that responded to the three distinct interfaces surrounding the site.

“This site is a prime example of a redevelopment opportunity given its location close to the CBD and excellent public transport links,” Cuzzupi said.

“The design strategy for the site sensitively responds to the unique streetscapes and neighbourhood character within the immediate area.”

The application proposes a mix of building heights, with the majority of buildings three to eight storeys, as well as a 14-storey residential tower in the north-west corner of the site.

“All buildings have been carefully sited so that the lowest-rise buildings, the townhouses, have appropriate setbacks consistent with planning guidelines and interface directly with existing residential areas along Park Street.

“Higher-rise buildings have been positioned to ensure that there is no shadowing across Princes Park and its much-loved walking and running-track,” Mr Cuzzupi said.

The project will significantly improve connectivity between the site and Princes Park, with a landscaped pedestrian link from Brunswick Road through to Park Street to be publicly accessible for the enjoyment of the wider community.

All residences within the development will have at least one car park, with a total of 377 car parks provided to cater for residents and visitors. There will also be 83 bicycle parks on site, to encourage sustainable transport use.
