Update on 103 Beach Street (the old Foodstore)

Since our last updates (here and here) the developer has been completing details to gain Council’s approval. A major task is the relocation of the sewerage system. This involves work with South East Water, Council and the Department of Environment, Water, Land and Planning.

Once Council endorses the plans the developer must obtain the consent of Mirvac under the covenants for the site. Pre-selling of apartments will then occur. The building phase is expected to take about 18 months.

109 Tram Track Duplication

The Victorian Government plans to duplicate the track at the final stop on the 109 service in Beacon Cove.

The draft design for the terminus is a central island stop, which has a platform in the middle and the tracks on either side. The intension is to move the terminus slightly north so that the end of the stop is approximately in line with the railway station.

Funding is not yet approved. The BCNA has been advocating for this work to be completed at the same time as the redevelopment of the Foodstore at 103 Beach Street.
