PLANS FOR $350M TOWER IN BURNLEY, MELBOURNE
Plans for the 14-storey tower in Swan Street, Burnley have been lodged with the City of Yarra by Bamfa Properties.
The area is a rapidly transforming suburb in Melbourne’s inner east that is emerging as a tech and creative industries hub.
The 27,000sq m Burley development, designed by Cox Architecture, will offer:
- Floor plates of up to 2,400sq m
- Garden terraces on most floor levels
- Carbon-neutral operation
- A direct link at the rear to the local Burnley station
- Easy access to the freeway and Burnley tunnel
The project, if realised, will offer views south over the Yarra, east to Hawthorn and Camberwell, and north to Richmond, plus views to the CBD.
It will also be sustainably led, aiming for net zero carbon, 5.5 NABERS rating and 6 Star Greenstar energy rating.
A council decision is expected this year.
