Only Flemington at corner Racecourse, Epsom, Ascot Vale Roads

took this on 4 December. The structure has now filled up the formwork you can see in this shot but overall construction hasn't moved 'up' much. this probably doesn't do it justice as another 50m up the road you crest the hill and see another 3-4 podium levels which are out of shot in this photo. Definitely a little landmark west of the train line now.

Rough guess compared to renders in the project database is that this is now topped out for this form of the structure with another 4-5 levels of a different layout/look to come (more glass less concrete).

I was wondering what that was going to be, and here I thought it was an apartment development, surrounding the poor corner site.

That small shopping strip is crying out for some love and attention. It could be a great hub for the University and local community and could support a great deal more activity and retail activation. There are also a number of sites that could easily accommodate high density development.

Victoria Racing Club considers next move for Flemington land
The Victorian Racing Club has won a key approval for its ambitious plan to sell land around the Flemington racecourse for development into residential housing.

The VRC is currently going it alone with two separate parcels of land it owns overlooking each end of the world-famous track – home to the Melbourne Cup – after an agreement with Chinese developer Greenland broke down.

The state government has cut back considerably the scale of the potential developments after original proposals provoked a community backlash.

The 14-storey tower proposed for the Flemington Green precinct on Flemington Hill has been reduced to 10 storeys, matching the height of the racecourse's historic grandstand.

At the other end of the track on Epsom Road, Planning Minister Richard Wynne has allowed a tower of up to 15 storeys, much lower than the originally-proposed 31-storey tower.

"This achieves a balance that recognises the need to keep pace with a growing population, but not at the expense of Flemington's appeal and amenity," Mr Wynne said.

"This is an example of proper planning at play. We've listened to the advice of a community and in independent group of experts to find the best way forward."

The VRC struck a deal more than three years ago to sell the two parcels of land to Greenland. The agreement would have netted around $45 million for the VRC which would help fund a redevelopment of the old club stand into a new facility.

But the deal with Greenland, which relied on the land being rezoned, collapsed last year when the Chinese developer tired of the delay in approval.

The Greenland project would have resulted in a high-rise development worth more than $500 million in end value.

The VRC needs to submit further development plans for each site before they can be given full approval.

A planning committee report released on Friday described the Flemington racecourse as a site of "international significance".

Because of that, a "less intense form of development, with a more modest built form" than Greenland had originally proposed with the VRC would be more appropriate, it found.

VRC chief executive Simon Love said the club was now considering its options for the land parcels.

"It is encouraging that the Minister for Planning and the advisory committee have supported development at Flemington and we will review next steps once we have studied the report in detail," he said.

"It has always been our intention to add to the vibrant Flemington precinct and fund the upgrade of facilities at the racecourse partially through the sale of surplus land."

That VRC decision from the Minister is a bit odd.

Only Flemington is 20 stories and constructed. and the Minister approved 15 stories directly across the road. personally I'd have approved the original 31, but I really see no point in dropping it below the height of the one over the road (which is also on a slightly higher land position).

Retail Job Bonanza As The Glen Launches Massive Redevelopment

14 March 2017

A massive $490 million re-development of The Glen Shopping Centre in Glen Waverley is set to create more than 2,350 new jobs and further cement Melbourne’s reputation as the nation’s retail capital.

Minister for Industry and Employment Wade Noonan today officially launched the New Glen re-development.

The first stage of the project – commencing later this year – will refurbish the existing shopping centre, introduce international brands such as Aldi, and relocate Woolworths to anchor the new fresh food market with Coles.

The redevelopment will create 1,150 jobs during construction and 1,200 on-going retail and hospitality roles.

It will also showcase a new contemporary food gallery with elevated views of the Dandenong Ranges and a casual dining hub over two levels.

The Glen Shopping Centre is co-owned by Vicinity Centres and the Perron Group. It will feature 240 retail outlets and 3,650 parking spaces on completion in early 2020.

The retail sector is one of Victoria’s biggest employers, providing jobs for 324,800 people. The sector generated more than $75 billion in turnover in 2016 – contributing about 4.5 per cent to our GSP.

Woolworths have bought the ABC Site in Elsternwick (the Selwyn St site, not the Gordon St/Rippon Lee site) for $45m. They'll open a supermarket there (given there is only a Coles in Elsternwick) and probably put up some apartments too.

Samma Group wins approval for Camberwell Junction tower

Almost 13 years after a development proposal in leafy Camberwell sparked a popular uprising led by renowned thespians Geoffrey Rush and Barry Humphries, another apartment tower on Burke Road has been given the green light.

A 12-storey building above three levels of basement car parking will go ahead next to the elliptical glass Aerial buildings on Camberwell Junction, after winning approval following a legal battle in Victoria's planning tribunal.

Samma controls Spec Property and several other development, construction and design businesses in Australia and Malaysia.

The 12-storey building at 699 Burke Road, a stone's throw from the Junction, will include a ground floor cafe and forty-five dwellings.
