Fishermans Bend approvals soar

Melbourne’s Fishermans Bend renewal area has seen approvals granted for 11 high rise developments. More than 2800 new apartments will be built in Fishermans Bend following approval of five planning permits. Planning minister Matthew Guy has approved the construction of 11 towers in the Montague precinct of the area, between Southbank and South Melbourne.

The five permits relate to four sites on Buckhurst and Gladstone streets, South Melbourne, and a 40-storey tower in Normanby Rd, Southbank.

Projects include dual 30-storey towers at 134 Buckhurst St – a 645 apartment project designed by Artisan Architects; a four tower complex, capped at 30 levels, designed by Rothelowman at 6/78 Buckhurst St; and another Artisan Architects’ design at 199 Normanby Rd that consists of a 40 level tower with 262 apartments.

The construction is worth $738 million and the developers will have to pay more than $44 million to the government in development contributions.

Six towers will be built on Buckhurst St, four of which will be 27 to 30 storeys.

Another four towers will be built on Gladstone St, all up to 30 storeys.

A laneway will be created between Gladstone and Buckhurst streets, through the middle of the two projects.

Little Projects, which is run by managing director ¬Michael Fox, is also working on a 900-unit development in the Fishermans Bend precinct.
