Christmas has been a busy season for developments

, By Yarra

It has been a busy December as developers have submitted planning applications or planning applications have moved to the next stage.

  • Salta has submitted a planning application to the City of Yarra for a 10 storey building between the Skipping Girl building (and famous sign) and Walmer Street in Abbotsford, at 647 Victoria Street
  • The City of Yarra was notified about another development by Salta of almost 640 apartments in two towers in Abbotsford on the other side of Walmer Street. This is zoned as Priority Development so the planning minister decides not the council.
  • The development at 106 St Georges Road of 7 storeys and 10 apartments will now go to VCAT in May as it was rejected by council.

There has been quite a bit of coverage for the first two developments in the Age and the Leader and on Channel 9 and Channel 7.
