Malaysia's Mitraland Unveils Plans For Melbourne Tower


Malaysian-based Mitraland Group has lodged plans with the City of Stonnington for a 20-level residential tower within South Yarra's Forrest Hill Precinct.

Designed by Fender Katsalidis, the 61-metre high tower at 649 Chapel Street is expected to have an end value of approximately $50 million.

The tower would have 72 two-bedroom apartments, 71sqm of retail space at ground level, 44 car parks and 21 bicycle spaces located within three basement levels and a communal rooftop space with a barbecue area and roof garden.

The 500sqm site is currently occupied by a two-storey commercial/retail building.

The site has previously been the subject of a planning submission for a 17-level building with 82 apartments, however the submission was not approved by VCAT.

Mitraland Australia is the Australian affiliate of Petaling Jaya-based Mitraland Group and has completed a range of medium and high-density residential projects mostly in Kuala Lumpur. It's the latest Malaysian developer to enter the Melbourne market after developers such as SP Setia and Mammoth Empire.
