One of the few projects around town to stumble

RICHMOND + CREMORNE | 3121 | Projects

Longriver sells Richmond site

Four months after paying nearly $23 million for a Box Hill petrol station with apartment redevelopment potential, developer Longriver has sold a permit-ready site at 207 Bridge Road, Richmond.

The 661-square-metre land holding, with buildings that currently derive a rental income, was offered with a permit for an eight-level complex containing 51 apartments and three lofts.

Between the Richmond and West Richmond train stations, two kilometres from the CBD, CBRE's Scott Orchard, Jimmy Tat and Chao Zhang sold the block for $6.25 million to a local developer.

^^ What a shame. This one appears to tick most boxes, ok design (not fantastic), well set back and respects the heritage on Bridge Road, 8 stories is not overly tall and would deliver residents and life that Bridge Road needs.

Hopefully the new owners keep the sales going.

CostaFox snaps up hot Cremorne site for $12 million

Boutique developer CostaFox has paid $12 million for a Cremorne site offloaded by one of the hot precinct’s key players.
Property values in Cremorne’s office precinct, dominated by creative and technology industries, have surged in the past two years - along with the rents which are pushing well past $500 a square metre for new space.
Title deeds show Icon director Ashley Murdoch paid just over $7 million for the 1180 square metre site at 1-11 Gordon Street, which he amassed in two lots over the past couple of years as a private investment.

CostaFox Developments is also planning a new 5000-6000 square metre office project for 1-11 Gordon Street.
Mr Gruzeswki said “the property has no plans and permits in place but we would expect a 6-8 level commercial office building will be developed to feed the strong tenant demand".

MYOB footprint over Cremorne

Accounting software developer MYOB is poised to become the biggest employer in “Silicon Richmond,” the hot technology focused office precinct in Cremorne.
MYOB will have more than 1000 staff in the riverside location, under the iconic Nylex clock, when it moves 570 staff out of an office in suburban Glen Waverley that opened less than three years ago.
The software vendor has agreed to take out all of Caydon’s 8800 square metre commercial building on Punt Road, part of the $1 billion Malt District development, bringing its total footprint in Cremorne to 14,000 square metres.
MYOB already has 450 people - software engineers and marketing teams - working metres away at 167 Cremorne Street in a building which has already doubled its size to 5250 square metres.
It currently occupies a single 5000 square metre floor at The Glen shopping centre, owned by The Glen. The move will be made in June 2020.

Reece comes into the cool

RICHMOND + CREMORNE | 3121 | Projects

In a historic move, listed plumbing supplies firm, the Reece Group, will shift its headquarters from the suburbs to Zig Inge’s new building on the historic Rosella complex in Cremorne.
Reece moved to its Burwood headquarters in 1986 and has been in the suburbs since its founder sold plumbing supplies from the back of a truck in 1920.
The 98-year-old company will move to its new seven-level Cremorne digs at 57 Balmain Street in 2020, its centenary anniversary.
Cremorne, south of Swan Street to the Yarra River in Richmond, is one of the fastest growing office areas in the country. MYOB recently signed a deal to occupy an 8800 square metre office building developed by Joe Russo’s Caydon Property.
The REA Group, Carsales, Uber and a host of other tech-related companies and co-working spaces dominate the area which has been dubbed “silicon Richmond”.
Reece’s workplace transportation lead Lizzy Geremia said the decision to leave the suburbs was motivated by a need to retain staff and “future-proof” the company.
Reece occupies 4400 square metres at 118 Burwood Highway in Burwood on a large site it shares with a large Reece showroom and warehouse, Ms Geremia said.

Icon gets go-ahead on Cremorne

RICHMOND + CREMORNE | 3121 | Projects

Work on Icon Developments’ proposed flagship Cremorne office building at 600 Church Street is poised to start after winning approval from the planning appeals body.
The Victorian Civil and Appeals Tribunal signed off on the building this week, restoring the eighth level which the City of Yarra eliminated during planning.
The Woods Marsh-designed building is proposed for the prominent Nuttelex site on the corner of Balmain Street. The 36-metre high building will have ground floor retail and seven levels of office covering 5264 square metres.
Icon Developments chief executive Ashley Murdoch said Wood Marsh was employed to design an iconic building reflecting the site’s gateway position and help it get through the planning process with some height.
Demolition work is underway at 600 Church Street and construction starts in June. The building will include three levels of basement parking for 71 cars and 100 bicycles as well as end of trip facilities. It is just five minutes from the popular Yarra Trail bike path.

Construction Contract Granted for $1bn Nylex Factory Site

Developer Caydon has awarded the contract to build stage one of the $1 billion Nylex Clock redevelopment on the high-profile site at Gough Street, Cremorne.
Stage one includes a 15 and 12 split-level tower featuring one, two and three-bedroom apartments and lower level retail and hospitality outlets.

RICHMOND + CREMORNE | 3121 | Projects

Although Probuild declined to elaborate on the construction contract, it will be well over the $100 million-plus "tier-one" construction classification.
This first stage of Caydon’s The Malt District mixed-use residential and commercial development is named Coppins Corner after 1850s Richmond and Cremorne identity George Coppin.
The Coppins Corner residential building was designed by Fender Katsalidis to complement adjacent heritage structures being retained in the development, including an historic Malt House to be converted into a micro-brewery and pub.

Demolition works have already commenced at the Nylex site with Probuild to commence construction within coming months.

Coppins Corner also features public spaces, courtyards and laneways designed by landscape architect Oculus, that will connect new and old buildings in the precinct with roads, pedestrian and bicycle paths.
The Malt District development is situated on the historical Richmond malting site, home to the landmark silos and the Nylex Clock, which has been a much-loved feature of Melbourne’s skyline since 1961. The retained heritage buildings and industrial mix of concrete, timber, brick, glass and steel has informed and inspired the design aesthetic.
Cremorne is a former industrial precinct next to Richmond and bound by Punt Road, Church and Swan Streets and the Yarra River.

Stage one includes a 15 and 12 split-level tower comprising apartments, lower-level retail and hospitality outlets.

Demolition works have already commenced at the Nylex site with Probuild to commence construction within coming months, and expected to be completed in mid-2020.
Caydon has already pre-sold almost 50 per cent of Coppins Corner apartments. The developer first received approval for its stage one plans from the Victorian Civil and Administrative Tribunal in 2016.
Probuild will also build a nine-level tower with 8,800 square metres of office space on the site’s south-eastern corner, which Caydon recently leased in its entirety to business software giant MYOB.

RICHMOND + CREMORNE | 3121 | Projects

“Probuild’s appointment to build Coppins Corner is a significant milestone for Caydon, and the start of the transformation of what is now a derelict industrial site into a stunning place for people to live, work and visit,” Caydon’s chief operations officer Jarrod Stratton said.
In January, Caydon received approval for stage two which it intends to deliver a boutique hotel, a function centre, shops and restaurants, art gallery and the construction and display of the old Nylex and Victoria Bitter signs on top of the silos.

Hi there.

I'm new here but have been following along for a while. I notice a lot of projects seems to get to the approved stage and then don't go any further. A couple along Victoria Street in Abbottsford for example. The one I want to know about is the Coles on Bridge road development at 271 Bridge road.

Anyone know what the holdup is?

I think once that development is underway, it'll bring some confidence back to bridge road and hope get the road back up and running like the good old days.

Salta launches office into heated inner-city market

RICHMOND + CREMORNE | 3121 | Projects

Prolific Melbourne private developer Salta Properties has revealed detailed plans for two office buildings on a large Richmond site as the Reject Shop's founder gets ready to sell a nearby Swan Street office.
Salta has submitted plans for two office buildings, one 14 storeys and the other seven, on a large Richmond site it purchased for $51 million last year.
They include 23,500 square metres of office space across two buildings that will house a large 1,322 sq m ground floor retail mall and a three storey childcare centre with a rooftop garden.
A 14-storey building will front onto a site at 459-471 Church Street while another interconnected structure behind will drop from seven to four storeys and extend to include 20-26 Brighton Street.
Existing low-rise buildings will be demolished to make way for the offices.

Seek's new HQ in red-hot Cremorne scores green light from VCAT

Listed online jobs board Seek is set to get its new $150 million headquarters in Cremorne, the fast growing tech-focused office market on the CBD fringe.

The Victorian Civil and Administrative Tribunal has approved the 19,300 square metre building, which Cremorne Properties is building for Seek at 60-88 Cremorne Street.

Seek is planning to move all its 900 staff into the new seven-level building, designed by Hassell, in 2020-2021. Head office at 541 St Kilda Road currently houses 800 employees.

The proposed building butts up against some of the precinct’s traditional terrace housing and was knocked back the City of Yarra because of height, overshadowing and “unreasonable visual bulk”.

VCAT found “the overall scale and massing is founded in the area’s physical character where large commercial/industrial built forms are juxtaposed with lower forms. It draws design cues from the important historical forms and character and adequately respects sensitive interfaces.”

Cable cars could take Melburnians from Flinders Street to Richmond Station

RICHMOND + CREMORNE | 3121 | Projects

Melburnians could soon be soaring high above the MCG, travelling from the city to Richmond Station on a new cable car system.

Under a grant aerial plan pitched to treasury, the ‘Skyloop’ would take off from Flinders Street Station, gliding 20 metres above the train tracks along Birrarung Marr.

Passengers would disembark outside the iconic MCG, before the cars rise to a height of one hundred metres and move towards a redeveloped eight-level Richmond Station.

The journey would conclude at AAMI Stadium, with a new 3000-space car park built underneath.

Architect Robert Caulfield is the brains behind the innovative idea, taking inspiration from other cable cars overseas.

“We want to make Melbourne more visible to the whole world,” Mr Caulfield told 9NEWS.
