In 2015, Urbis was engaged by Caydon to help redevelop Melbourne’s landmark Malt District in Cremorne into a dynamic mixed-use precinct that preserves the site’s historic assets while creating a vibrant destination for people to live, work and enjoy.
Urbis is working with Caydon on a complex staged application process for the project, including combined rezoning and multiple planning permit applications that are required due to the scale of the site and proposed development. We assisted the client manage the multiple application processes, working with Caydon’s project team to facilitate the best outcome. The project has also involved engagement with a number of stakeholders including the City of Yarra, Heritage Victoria, the Victorian Civil and Administrative Tribunal and the local community.
The Malt District, Cremorne represents a world-class urban renewal project that will breathe new life into a Melbourne icon and enliven the local area.
The Malt District will feature a mix of apartments, commercial and retail spaces, including a gastro brewery and bicycle café and a public plaza. The precinct will include Key Worker housing meeting the City of Yarra’s policy objectives to promote housing affordability. It will be sensitive to the site’s industrial heritage, preserving some of its historic buildings and the iconic Nylex sign.
