THE Victorian Civil and Administrative Tribunal (VCAT) last month approved a controversial $150 million development on the 'Honeywell' site in Victoria Street, Abbotsford. Yarra City Council had approved the application in April however a number of parties applied for a review of this decision at VCAT.
The proposal involves two planning permit applications for a significant redevelopment of the site. The two existing office buildings are to be replaced with a mixed-use development, consisting primarily of residential development. The second application concerned external works (such as a pontoon, landscaping works and connections to the Capital City Trail).
