The permit applicant sought amendments to the original permit. They appealed to VCAT when the Minister for Planning failed to determine the amendment within the required time.

VCAT granted permit P866/2016 on 26 September 2016.

The development will contain 536 apartments over three towers and eleven townhouses. Two of the towers will be twelve storeys while the tower on the corner of Plummer and Prohasky Streets will be fifteen storeys.

The mix of dwellings will be 48% one bedroom, 39.5% two bedroom, an increase in 3 bedroom dwellings from 6.3% to 12.7% and 11 townhouses. This accords with the requirements to provide for housing diversity in size and affordability.

May 2015

Planning permit PA1600082 was issued by the Minister for Planning on 24 May 2015 for a development of three towers between 12 and 15 storeys.


A planning application was lodged with the Metropolitan Planning Authority (MPA) on 1 October 2014. The application was not supported by the MPA. (Ref 14/0005)
