93-103 Park Street

By Heritage, Planning No Comments

There are plans to demolish two Edwardian apartment buildings at 93 – 103 Park Street and replace them with a modern building. The MSYRG along with several local residents have banded together to fight this proposal and the image above shows the revised proposal from the developers. As you can see it retains the St Arnaud facade and some elements of the older building to the north (on the right in picture). The developer is arguing for the demolition of this older building on the grounds it is unsafe and irreparable. We continue to oppose its demolition.

Robinson Letter

Letter to Ted Phillips at Yarra Trams

By Melbourne Metro rail No Comments

Yarra Trams have recently released details of the work they will shortly start to construct the new tramline along Toorak Rd West into St Kilda Rd following which the Park St Domain Rd service will cease.
The attached letter of 3 April is our response in which we express our objections and concerns, in particular opposing the relocation of the interchange in St Kilda Rd which, if it proceeds, will mean the Park St Domain Rd service will never return.
