Posted May 09, 2019 05:53:28 Victoria’s premier says a developer has secured the backing of the Government to develop more than 3,000 homes in the city’s CBD.
Premier Daniel Andrews said it would create “an amazing community”.
“This is a project with a long-term vision and an incredible community and it is going to create an amazing community,” he said.
The Government is yet to approve the project, but it would be built on land already used by the City of Melbourne, including the Royal Melbourne Hospital. “
This project will create an incredible development in Melbourne, it will create a vibrant urban core and create an affordable, affordable place to live.”
The Government is yet to approve the project, but it would be built on land already used by the City of Melbourne, including the Royal Melbourne Hospital.
The plan would also include a new residential development, the construction of a new sports and entertainment precinct and the redevelopment of the Royal Botanic Gardens.
Andrews said he had already secured the support of the Australian Construction Council and the Government was committed to supporting construction.
The Victorian Government is committed to the construction and development of a 3,200-home community in Melbourne and other communities across Victoria, Andrews said.
The Government announced in April it was building a 3.5-kilometre network of roads in Melbourne with the aim of helping reduce congestion.
Andrews announced the Government would also spend $1.8 billion over the next two years on a “high-speed rail corridor”.
He said the Government’s plan would connect the northern cities of Melbourne and the state’s west with regional regional trains and buses.
The project is due to start construction in 2019.
