Developer Time & Place and Woolworths are set to lodge plans for a mixed-use project in Melbourne's GLEN IRIS.

Time & Place and Woolworths secured 173 Burke Road earlier this year for $29.25 million, and this week will submit plans to the City of Stonnington for a mixed-use community on the 4,306 sqm site which was bought as a two storey office building.

The plans by Carr Architecture will see 90 apartments located above a full-line, state-of-the-art Woolworths and adjoining BWS at street level. There will be one, two and three bedroom terrace-style apartments.

Each apartment will feature its own external entry, a hero of the project's design, which allows for dual aspect and improved daylight/crossflow ventilation, while also providing an energy efficient end-product.

The project will be targeting 4-Star Green Star Rating from the Green Building Council of Australia.

Time & Place principal Edward Pearse says that the design that has been put forward does not look like a traditional apartment block.

"It takes cues from suburban living and Australian Modernism to improve this under-utilised portion of the Burke Road."

"The design considers careful integration of the residential and retail elements to ensure a quality living and shopping experience for all end-users.

“We’ve looked to bring the best of traditional terraced homes – from their sustainable design and down to the entry experience – to a higher density project.”

The site has been identified for regeneration as part of the Council’s strategic plan for Burke Road.

Subject to planning approval, the development would create around 250 jobs as well as 120 ongoing retail jobs once complete.

Woolworths State Development Manager Don Foulds said the development application delivers a clear vision to revitalise the site and deliver a thriving, contemporary and convenient mixed-use development.

“Our proposed designs aim to reflect the unique local character of GLEN IRIS while delivering on Stonnington Council’s vision for high quality housing and convenient shopping for the area.”

The full-line Woolworths will face Burke Road, with the Hope Street frontage to feature an open-air stairway leading to the residences, preserving amenity for neighbours.
