Development Victoria

Redeveloping a former City West Water site

Sunshine North

About the project

City West Water relocated their administration office and depot located at 247 – 251 St Albans Road, Sunshine North to Footscray.

Development Victoria acquired this site in November 2015, after the land was rezoned to allow a mix of homes, shops and other services. The 12.5-hectare site is bound by Stony Creek to the east, vacant land, St Albans Road and the Western Ring Road. 

Development Victoria is now working with the local council and community to develop a concept master plan for the redevelopment.

The development will offer a diverse range of housing types, catering for a range of family sizes and price points. There will also be walking and cycling paths, as well as the potential for community areas, such as public open space and an urban plaza.

Demolition works have now commenced, however these will exclude the heritage listed administration office on St Albans Road. Civil construction is expected to begin in late 2017.

Stony Creek transformation 

A section of the existing Stony Creek channel is being revitalised to transform the creek back to its natural state. This will occur along the entire eastern boundary of the site. 

The creek transformation project includes a two kilometre walking and cycle path. 

Community engagement 

Development Victoria engages with communities and stakeholders to ensure our projects are informed by the needs and expectations of the local community. 

We believe that local knowledge adds value to our projects.  

A community information session was held in Sunshine North on 10 December. Feedback from this session will be made available on this page over coming weeks.
