RICHMOND + CREMORNE | 3121 | Projects

A 2040-square-metre site on Richmond Hill is back on the market nine months after it sold for $11 million with a new price tag asking up to one-third more.
The site at 150-152 Bridge Road and 1-3 Allowah Terrace is regarded as the last major development parcel in Richmond. It includes two shops, a car park and a multi-storey building on Allowah Terrace dating back to Richmond's rag trade heritage. The Pelaco building overlooks the site.
CBRE city sales team Mark Wizel, Josh Rutman, Lewis Tong and Julian White are now marketing the property, which could fetch as much as $15 million.
The property was purchased last September by a newly formed company, Allowah Terrace, controlled by Mike Phillips.
Development plans for the site include 10,000 square metres of apartments by Jackson Clements Burrows Architects or 41 townhouses designed by Cera Stribley Architects. Elenberg Fraser had previously prepared a development scheme for 97 apartments.

Heritage decision on Richmond's Nylex site throws $95 million plan into disarray

A $95 million plan for part of Richmond's sprawling Nylex site is in disarray, after the state's top heritage body ruled it should not go ahead.

Developer Caydon wanted to build a 15-level apartment tower on a section of the one-hectare site bought two years ago for almost $40 million.

It was to be the first stage of the redevelopment of the dilapidated beer-brewing site next to the Yarra River.

This first stage of the project would not have had a direct impact on the famous old silos or the Nylex sign.

But the Victorian Heritage Council found the proposed apartment tower would have detracted from the sign's "landmark quality and presentation as a sky sign, and compromise its function as a reference point".

Caydon's application to demolish the silos beneath the Nylex sign is now the subject of a separate dispute that has been brought by a small group of local activists.

In a ruling released last Friday, the state government's Heritage Council said it would not issue a permit to demolish key parts of the old brewing and malting site.

It said the development proposal by Caydon, owned by former Richmond Football Club board aspirant Joe Russo, "would have a detrimental impact on the cultural heritage of a significant" Melbourne place.

"Mr Stratton said the company understood developing the site would be challenging, because of its history and significance to Melbourne. But he said Caydon's plan would restore many significant heritage buildings – at some expense to the developer."

If you buy a heritage site, and don't expect to maintain or restore any of the heritage elements, surely that would be unreasonable? How about some actual respect for Melbourne's cultural icons?

Caydon takes Nylex site battle to the Supreme Court

RICHMOND + CREMORNE | 3121 | Projects

The 18-month battle to develop one of Melbourne's largest privately held urban renewal projects, the Nylex maltings site along the Yarra, is heading for the Victorian Supreme Court in what could be a landmark case for heritage sites.

Joe Russo's Caydon group acquired the 1.1-hectare site in late 2014 for just over $38 million. Caydon submitted plans in April last year to turn the mainly derelict, but historically significant site (home to the famous Nylex Clock and Victoria's oldest surviving malting plant) into a $1 billion apartment, office and entertainment precinct called the "Malt District".

In July, Caydon won the right, at the Victorian Civil and Administrative Tribunal (VCAT), to proceed with amended plans for stage one of the project, including a 15-level tower and supermarket, following a protracted battle with the City of Yarra and opposition from local residents including former Victorian premier Jeff Kennett.

But these plans were left in disarray in early September after a Heritage Council Permit Committee upheld a January ruling by Heritage Victoria executive director Tim Smith to refuse a permit to demolish elements of the existing site on the basis that it would deliver "very little positive heritage outcomes".

Caydon development manager Georgia Willis said the Heritage Council decision offered "no way out" for Caydon, which had hoped to turn the soil on stage one in early 2017.

"It's effectively a 'lock up the site and throw away the keys' decision," Ms Willis told The Australian Financial Review.

Caydon also claims that Heritage Victoria is retrospectively amending a 2004 exemption on the site that allowed it to demolish the big concrete silos in stage two of the project, thus preventing their future demolition. This followed an application in May by local community activists to retain the silos.

Caydon will lodge its appeal of the Heritage Victoria decision to the Supreme Court in October and hopes that a win in court will put pressure on Victorian planning minister Richard Wynne to intervene.

Ms Willis warned the Heritage Victoria decision could become a "sovereign risk issue" for the Victorian government as investors and developers might lose confidence in the planning process and shy away from undertaking other heritage-impacted projects.

Alfasi reboots its property arm with $24m Richmond purchase

RICHMOND + CREMORNE | 3121 | Projects

The privately held Alfasi steel construction and equipment hire group will reboot its property development arm using a site it bought in one of Melbourne's hottest property sectors for more than $24 million.

The group decided to relaunch the development arm by buying a large site in Richmond's Church Street, the city's most sought-after office sector outside the CBD.

A deal negotiated by David Marks and John Camilleri from Killen Thomas saw two single-storey buildings on a 3000-square-metre site at 506-508 Church Street exchange for $24.7 million, setting a new benchmark land rate of $8200 per sq m.

Interesting - 508 Church Street appears to sit directly over the Citylink tunnel. I wonder how deep the basement for such a large development can extend in that case?

Construction Starts At Richmond High

21 February 2017

RICHMOND + CREMORNE | 3121 | Projects

Families in Melbourne’s booming inner suburbs will soon have access to a new school thanks to the Andrews Labor Government – the first vertical government high school built in Victoria.

Premier Daniel Andrews, Minister for Education James Merlino and Member for Richmond Richard Wynne today joined local community members to mark the start of construction of the $43 million Richmond High School.

Richmond High School will cater for 650 Year seven to 12 students across two sites, with a four-storey academic precinct on the Highett Street site and sports precinct on Gleadell Street.

The Gleadell Street site will initially be a multi-purpose campus and will open for year seven students in 2018, with the Highett Street campus set to open in 2019.

Once the second campus opens, the Gleadell Street site will become a full-time sports precinct and include four competition-standard netball courts.

During their visit to the Gleadell Street site they met the inaugural Principal Colin Simpson, an award-winning education leader who is alumnus of the original Richmond High School.

He will start work this month and will spend the next 12 months developing a clear vision for school, appointing staff, building relationships with the community and working closely with the architects and builders.

Salta to divest riverside site to fund multi-family project

Salta Properties is looking to divest a prize riverside development site, with approval for almost 500 apartments in inner-city Melbourne, as it steps up plans elsewhere to develop one of the country's first build-to-rent projects.

Salta Properties, now one of the country's biggest private developers, is the family company of Financial Review Rich Listers the Tarascio family, Founded by Sam Tarascio, it is headed by his son, also named Sam.

Salta's development pipeline has expanded to $5.6 billion, including a pioneering project for a multi-family development at Docklands, comprising a hotel of around 200 rooms along with 220 apartments.

The pipeline also includes the Riverside project in inner-city Richmond, where Salta has been busy on a series of residential developments.

Riverside is set on more than two hectares of land, including 135 metres of frontage along the Yarra and has a permit to build 494 apartments.

As valuable as that is for Salta – it could fetch $75 million or more as a permitted site – Mr Tarascio is putting it on the market as the company's focus shifts.

"A lot of our focus is on projects we can retain for the long-term now," Mr Tarascio told The Australian Financial Review.

"We've got the Docklands coming up which is one we want to hold on to.

There's also very strong community sentiment against Salta for their proposed redevelopment of the Main Yarra Trail at Walmer St.
