Councils to take on big projects

 

The state government will hand back planning powers to local councils for 21 significant sites across Melbourne including South Wharf and the Whitten Oval redevelopment. Planning Minister Matthew Guy said local councils were best suited to manage local planning decisions and he would return powers to them for some strategic sites in the next few weeks.

Cars to go at Carlins as towers take over

June 1, 2013

The owners of South Melbourne automotive auction house Carlins have submitted plans to replace their long-time headquarters with four skyscrapers.

Carlins' site falls within the Montague pocket of Fishermans Bend, a 240-hectare parcel rezoned for residential redevelopment by Mr Guy last July.

Since then, 21 residential skyscrapers have been proposed for Montague. One low-rise project for a suburb within Fishermans Bend, to be known as Sandridge, has also been lodged.

Just a few hundred metres from Docklands and Southbank, Carlins' massive block at 6-78 Buckhurst Street is identified by the low-rise auction house that is painted red.

The tallest apartment tower earmarked to replace the auction house will rise 38 levels. The balance of towers will be between 27 and 38 storeys. All up the Carlins site will include 1023 flats, but just 693 spaces for cars and 42 for motorcycles. Retail is expected at ground level.

In March, Carlins director Rob Carlin told The Age that after obtaining permits, his company planned to sell the site off in stages.

ISPT looks to sell Spencer Street site off market for $800m project

Nick Lenaghan

Industry Superannuation Property Trust has been quietly looking for an off-market buyer for one of Melbourne’s last and largest CBD residential regeneration opportunities. An ISPT-led consortium acquired the Spencer Street site previously occupied by The Age newspaper for $66 million in 2007, and later sold off a portion of it ­to developer Central Equity for $17 million. The 11,750 square metre site that remains could now fetch $70 million to $80 million, according to market sources.

Towering ambition on fringe
June 7, 2013

The gateway to Melbourne could soon be lined by apartment towers after Melbourne City Council opened the door to buildings more than 10-storeys high to border CityLink.

In an unusual planning move, developers will be able to argue for towers higher than 36 metres by bequeathing a unique gift to the community - a public school.

The council no longer wants to cap the height of developments at 20 metres in the three-block stretch of warehouse-dominated land in North Melbourne.

Instead, under a plan to go before an independent panel, preferred maximum heights for buildings could be waived if developers can prove a benefit for the broader community or build a new primary or secondary school for at least 200 students.

The change to the Arden-Macaulay planning scheme amendment was moved by Cr Rohan Leppert and anticipates a forecast sevenfold population growth in the precinct within the next four decades. About 20,500 people are expected to reside in the area after 2040.

We can’t dictate terms to Asian property investors: bureaucrat
UPDATED: 07 Jun 2013

Governments can’t stop Asian investors building tall apartment towers, a top bureaucrat says, even though experts say apartments are often of poor quality.

The head of the Victorian Public Service, Andrew Tongue, said governments could not dictate terms to Asian investors who favoured tall towers and small apartments, because of a lack of other capital.

“Cities don’t grow because we will them to; cities grow because there is a flow of investment capital, and a lot of investment capital making this city grow is Asian investment capital, and it feels comfortable with a particular style of development. And right now we are really not in a position to fight that,” he told a Melbourne transport conference on Thursday.

As traffic congestion in Australia gets worse, part of the solution is minimising travel times by locating homes closer to jobs. One way to achieve that is relaxed planning rules that allow for higher-density living.

A 2011 report from the Grattan Institute polled people on the style of housing they would prefer and found a shortfall of medium-density options and apartments, especially in middle and outer suburbs.

Not any apartment will do. Marcus Spiller, the head of SGS Economics & Planning, a consulting firm, said city apartments often weren’t very good.

Melbourne developer Albert Dadon, who has apartment projects on William Street and St Kilda Road, said this gave Asian developers an unfair advantage. Mr Dadon said it was concerning that offshore funding was not subject to the same checks and balances that Australian banks demanded.

“The process is totally opaque and all happens overseas,” he said.

Rebecca Thistleton
