Off the plan buyers opt to walk away from Evo

Off the plan buyers have opted to walk away from Evo Parkville Apartments and accept an offer to sell their contracts to the Victorian government.

Exact figures have not yet been finalised but the Australian Financial Review understands nearly all of the 159 buyers of apartments in the development in Melbourne’s inner north will accept the offer made by Victorian Treasurer Michael O’Brien two weeks ago.

“There has been a positive response to the offer presented to Evo purchasers and further details will be made available in due course,” said a spokesperson for Mr O’Brien. Purchasing all 175 apartments on top of the 16 already purchased could cost the state government close to $90 million.

next use, social housing?

I think they will just resell them at a lower price. I don't think an isolated block of social housing surrounded by freeway ramps would produce a good outcome.

There should be a warning any time that multi coloured building on the corner of Queensberry and Swanston is shown. Absolute shocker.

P.S. Thanks for the pics.

Let's face it, without the colour the grey facade would be a shocker. Nevertheless, a totally boring building imo.

Popular Curtain Square Park in Carlton North could be extended
NIC PRICE MELBOURNE LEADER NOVEMBER 11, 2013 12:00AM

A SECTION of Canning St would be turned into parkland to extend Carlton North's popular Curtain Square Park under a proposal before Yarra Council.

But Bicycle Network Victoria has warned of "conflict" from running thousands of bikes using the Canning St arterial through a family park.

Under the plan, expected to cost in the hundreds of thousands, the park would be extended east to include Canning St between Curtain and Newry streets. The section is effectively a cul-de-sac as Canning St is closed to motor vehicles at Curtain St.
