    Foodstore Redevelopment - Briefing Session - Tuesday 18 December

    103 Beach Street, Proposed Northern (Beach Street) Elevation

    The developers of 103 Beach Street (the Beacon Cove Foodstore) have arranged a consultation session on their plans for the site which have been lodged with the City of Port Phillip (CoPP). The plans and other planning documents (application 673/2015/A) can be downloaded here.

    The consultation session will be held on Tuesday 18 December from 8:30am to 10:00am at Mr Hobson on Station Pier. Light breakfast (coffee and pastry) will be provided during this time.

    Changes from the earlier plans include:
    • Redesign of the approved development, amending materials finishes, design and layout.
    • Increasing the number of storeys from three to four.
    • Increase in height of the building from 13.5m to 15.9m.
    • Reduction of the number of dwellings from 14 to 12.
    • Rearrangement of the approved basement car park.
    • The total number of spaces would be reduced from 34 spaces to 30 spaces.
    • Removal of car parking within northern setback of the site due to increase in footprint of building.
    • Reduction in the height of the soffit over the shared bike path from 5m to 4m.
    Some key points that have already been identified by one of our members and may be of interest to BCNA members are:
    • It's not entirely clear but it appears that direct supermarket entry will be only from Waterfront Place (ie no direct access to the carpark on Beach Street) or walking through the cafe from one end to the other. See plan TP-151 for details.
    • The removal of car parking within northern setback of the site will result in the removal of 11 or 12 parking spaces from the car park. It currently has capacity of 25 car spaces - 21 perpendicular and 4 parallel - and plan TP-101 seems to show 10 or 11 perpendicular car spaces and 3 parallel spaces.
    • The new plan is for six apartments on the first level, four on the second, and two on the third.
    • Compared to the previous plan there seems to be a tiny bit more overshadowing at the winter solstice up to about 11am and from about 3pm onwards, rest of time similar (the previous plan had a lot more overshadowing than there is with current building).
    If you are planning to attend the consultations session, for catering purposes would you please RSVP to by Sunday 16 December.
