Plans for $120m East Melbourne development given the green light

A nine-storey mixed-use project opposite Fitzroy Gardens has been given the green light after receiving a planning permit.

The East Melbourne site is set to be transformed by the $120 million boutique development headed up by Melbourne-based architectural developer Orchard Piper.

Orchard Piper co-founder and Director, Rick Gronow, says that growing demand for high quality accommodation in East Melbourne was behind the decision to acquire the three amalgamated sites at 364-370 Albert Street.

“This site is as good as it gets, and we are excited to be able to soon offer these properties to the market,” he says.

We have continuous demand from our buyers and repeated enquiries for an Orchard Piper offering in East Melbourne.

Spanning 1,200 sqm in total, the development will feature a restored 3-storey Victorian townhouse as well as private offices and a further six residential levels all boasting direct views across Fitzroy Gardens.

After teaming up with long-time design partners Jolson Architecture, Orchard Piper Director Luke McKie says that he is looking forward to getting the project underway.

“We have been actively acquiring sites through COVID with a view to significantly bolstering our pipeline as we move into more substantial projects in Melbourne’s best locations,” he says.

“This East Melbourne project has been designed in direct response to more than 13 years of market feedback from our local owner occupiers.”

“Living spaces will be ample, with home offices and master suites just as you would expect in a detached house” Luke adds.

Orchard Piper’s latest development is set to launch later this year, for more information visit
