What is this development?

Spec Property will be submitting a planning application to Banyule City Council for a major mixed-use development including apartments, offices and retail spaces on a consolidated site. The site incorporates the Evernew Caravan and Heidelberg Suzuki sites.

The development includes;

  • Approximately 500 apartments across four buildings
  • Preliminary design concepts for varying building heights from 4 storeys up to 22 storeys (including a rooftop garden)
  • Approximately 650 car parks to service commercial and residential properties
  • Vehicle access via Bell Street and laneways.


No. A planning application is yet to be submitted.

Council and the developer are sharing the preliminary design concepts with you and would like your feedback.

The multi-use development will consist of apartments, offices and retailing space.

A planning application is yet to be lodged. Planning for a development of this type will take at least 18 months.

You can attend the Community Information Session where you can view the plans, meet the team and ask questions.

Representatives from Council will be available on the night to answer questions about local planning requirements.

Where are we now?

The design concepts have not been finalised and a permit application has not yet been lodged.
