PDG lodge planning permit for mixed-use project in Southbank

25 Oct 2019

PDG are happy to announce that a planning permit has been lodged for our latest mixed-use project in Southbank.

The application follows an agreement PDG reached with the City of Melbourne in June 2019 to create a community-focused development that will incorporate a mix of residences, a boutique hotel, retail and community facilities.

The island site is part of the Boyd Park, which spans close to 2 acres of newly completed parkland for existing and future residents. This amenity builds on the facility’s current function as a vibrant community hub in one of the most sought-after inner Melbourne suburbs.

The development site is ideally located with links to key public spaces that promote neighbourly connections and will include an additional 1,000m2 of community facilities and affordable housing.

PDG Corporation Managing Director, Vince Giuliano, said “Our vision is to create a vertical village that will be enhanced by the newly created 2-acre park as its main entrance. It will be an energetic collaboration of high-quality residences with community and nature, culminating in the perfect inner-city home – the new Boyd Village”.

“We thank City of Melbourne for selecting PDG as preferred developer on this project. We are excited to share and deliver on their strategic vision, which centres around the Southbank community, present and future.”

Given the interest in the project to date, PDG has not ruled out the project being all or part build-to-rent, following on from the company’s latest build-to-rent project in the Queen Victoria Market precinct.

PDG plans to commence construction next year with a two-year construction program.
