Revised Plans for Riverfront Development on Victoria Street, West End Lodged

First proposed in 2018, the controversial West End riverfront development at 117 Victoria Street has undergone a major redesign and is now up for approval.



The Crown Group originally proposed the development on the 1.25-hectare property four years ago and was granted approval that same year which involves the establishment of 455 apartments across four towers atop a large podium, despite strong opposition from local residents.

However, construction of the Victoria Street project was paused to allow the developer to submit revised plans. The updated design maintained the four towers but removed the podium and reoriented Towers 1 and 3 to allow more open space, maximise the river views and improve access to natural light and ventilation.

Designed by Kengo Kuma and Associates and Plus Architecture, the new development application will also seek approval for an increase in the number of apartments to 473 (126 x 1 bedroom, 225 x 2 bedrooms, 111 x 3 bedrooms, 11 x 4 bedrooms) from the original 455 and an increase in parking spaces from 507 to 635.

There will also be an additional 140sqm of retail space at the ground level of Tower 1 plus 5,025sqm of communal open space which also increased from 3,964sqm as a result of the podiums removal and activation of residential amenities at the rooftop of Towers 1 and 4. The communal recreation space comprises a pool, outdoor decks, indoor gym and lounge and dining areas.
