Queen Vic gets a $250m facelift
The Andrews Government has given the redevelopment of the Queen Victoria Market the green light.
Premier Daniel Andrews and planning minister Richard Wynne have joined Lord Mayor Robert Doyle to announce planning controls, which will allow the Queen Victoria Market redevelopment to get underway.
The $250 million redevelopment will:
– Upgrade the market
– Provide new storage facilities
– Upgrade power supply
– Fund car parking developments
The controversial high-rise development on the Munro Street site has been limited to 125 metres.
Council wanted a 200-metre development, but the Lord Mayor has welcomed the outcome.
Anti-redevelopment protestors have gathered outside the announcement.
