VCAT now the 'Agent of Change' for Brunswick's Michael Street apartments

The ‘Agent of Change’ provision has been cited by respondents in relation to a planning application seeking an 8 storey apartment development adjacent to live music venue Howler.

Urban regeneration grips Brunswick's massive Licorice Factory site

7,000 square metres of prime yet underutilised Brunswick real estate is heading down the path of urban regeneration. 342-348 Victoria Street had for generations been the home of Australian Licorice Company.
