Defence Housing Australia bought the old Toyota site on Queen Victoria Street and have engaged Hassell Architects to design a significant mixed use development that will transform the area.
They have worked with council and local residents to meet the aims of the scheme for the area that will include offices, retail and cafes at the ground floor level, public open space and access through the site connecting the Leisure Centre to Queen Victoria Street, plus 166 new apartments.
Defence Housing have been very pro-active about consulting the community as they develop these plans, which I regard highly. There will be a public information session on Friday 4 September in Kings Square between 3pm – 6pm. An information sheet is attached below.
I encourage anyone interested to go and check it out and make a submission to Council to let us know what you think.
