Modern, two storey childcare centre for 102 children to be built on a corner site in Heidelberg Heights. Once complete, the childcare centre will offer abundant natural light by a large spanning, translucent glazing system.
This is a corner site on a main road, ideal for a childcare centre, and only 800m from Bell St Mall containing 80 specialty stores and opposite two hospitals. Upcoming residential projects include Ivanhoe Gardens with 494 apartments – under construction and Bellfield Masterplan – a proposed large scale residential development with modern community facilities.
The location of the site meant there were serious town planning considerations along the way. These included creating a beautiful façade concept to Council’s satisfaction and overcoming Council’s car parking ratio, by reducing the number of car spots provided. We negotiated these issues via a pre-application meeting with Banyule City Council and they have been supportive of our proposition to lodge a permit application for a childcare centre on this site.
