The Cartmell street project involves a proposed sale of land to deliver a mixed use development, maintain existing carparking and provide additional public car parking and deliver the best financial return for Council.
The project intends to sell the airspace above the existing carpark to deliver a multi-level residential/mixed use development above the public carpark. It is proposed that a strata title arrangement govern the mixed-use development which would include both a Council owned carpark and privately owned properties.
The Cartmell St site has been identified as a strategic development location in various strategic documents including: Heidelberg and Bell St Mall Parking Plan (2016), Heidelberg Structure Plan (2010 and the draft currently being revised) and the Banyule Integrated Transport Plan. These documents help set broad planning principles to guide future development outcomes for the site.
Currently, the planning Scheme indicates a preferred height of 13 metres for this site.
The draft Heidelberg Structure Plan indicates a preferred height of 17 meters for Cartmell Street frontage and transitioning up to 26m along Sheffields Lane.
Feedback on the structure plan is open until 19 October 2021.
