The Australian Red Cross donor centre in Southbank – which the bank vacated on Friday– is now the subject of a landmark 73-level application which would contain 512 flats and 112 hotel suites.
The proposed building earmarked for 51-65 Clarke Street would add just 120 car parks. It will also include a business hub, function centre and lower level retail space.
Mainland Chinese developer Brilliland Group, also known as the Newcity Development Group, were reported as the $30.4 million buyer of the three level office on 1790 square metres in September, 2014. The ARC will relocate functions undertaken at Southbank to a new city centre opening on May 23.
The NewCity site is not far from a proposed 41 -level apartment tower permitted for 65-71 Haig Street, Southbank, a site which also abuts the West Gate Freeway.
That 1001 square metre site, with plans for the 254-unit Fender Katsalidis complex, hit the market this week via Savills Clinton Baxter and is expected to sell for about $18 million.
