Developer Alfasi Group's intended hotel development at 2-10 River Street looks to have advanced with Hyatt Centric earmarked for the project.

Current planning documents and renders note Hyatt Centric as the operator of the intended 10 storey hotel development design by Carr Architecture. 153 keys are slated for the mid-rise development which is situated behind The Como Centre.

Alfasi Group picked up the 2,116 square metre commercially zoned site for $18 million during 2017. If Hyatt Hotels Corporation ratifies the South Yarra location, it will be the second Hyatt Centric in Melbourne behind the recently announced CBD location which will carry 278 guestrooms and suites.

Little Projects is back in the apartment game with a planning application on Prahran's Grattan Street.

After divesting itself of an approved development site at 89 Lorimer Street and choosing not to proceed with South Yarra's 38-40 Claremont Street, the developer is chasing approval for a development at 17-22 Grattan Street. Currently Little Projects only have Hedgeley within Malvern East at construction.

The unique Plus Architecture-designed scheme includes 55 apartments over 7 levels, split between 19 single, 30 double and 6 triple bedroom dwellings.

Also in Prahran, a site on Porter Street has been earmarked for a commercial reincarnation.

56-58 Porter Street is designed to include approximately 4,200 square metres of commercial space above three basement levels. The $11 million build was lodged with Stonnington during June and is backed by entity Seventeenth Android Pty Ltd.
