Bell Street Development

Located at 310 Bell Street, Heidelberg, the Bell Street Development project involves a proposed sale of land to deliver a mixed use development, associated car parking and provide a community facility and deliver the best financial return for Council.

Development expectations

The community centre will be owned and operated by Council. Council is seeking proposals that best use the land for a mixed use development that ultimately enhances the urban quality, including safety, accessibility and amenity of the area.

EOI process

The expression of interest (EOI) is a public invitation to all interested parties to participate in the project. Developers must lodge a statement detailing the indicative terms for partnership development, development proposal, approach, capacity, experience and demonstrated leadership in mixed use developments.

Timeline

The EOI period has closed.

Council may select a shortlist from the developers to the EOI following an evaluation against the evaluation criteria outlined in the EOI document.

All developers wishing to lodge a submission must register to use Council's Procurement Portal.

RFP process

This request for proposal (RFP) is the second part of the selection process to identify developers that can purchase the land and deliver the project.

Shortlisted developers may be identified, and invited to submit a final proposal in response to legal documents and list of conditions prepared by Council as part of a RFP.

It is expected that any eventual developer may be approved by Council in December 2021.
