Proposed plans of the boutique townhouse development

The Melbourne developer Buxton Projects has secured a permit to go ahead with a new townhouse development in Melbourne's bayside Brighton.

They were supported by Bayside City Council at a VCAT hearing to be allowed to create the nine bedroom townhouse project on an amalgamated 1,463 sqm site.

In 2019 the team spent $4.6 million on an amalgamated 1,463 sqm site at 444 St Kilda Street Brighton and 40a Head St, Brighton which they bought for $4.6 million in 2019.

The $7 million development, designed by NTF Architect in landscaped surrounds by Jack Merlo, will comprise nine three bedroom, two level townhouses, each with private basement car parking.

The Urbis town planning report suggested the development presents a unique opportunity to create a distinct gateway to the City of Bayside.

"The townhouses provide a high level of internal amenity which will create a high end finished product."
