Civil works have commenced on the residential townhouse component at Wodonga’s Junction Place, with developer Central Place appointing local contractor AP Delaney to undertake the works.
The townhouses represent the first stage of main construction works at Junction Place, which will commence once the civil works are completed, which is expected to be in April 2020.
Development Victoria’s Group Head, Precincts, Mr Geoff Ward said the start of civil works was an exciting milestone for the project.
“Junction Place is regional Australia’s largest urban renewal project and this residential development will deliver construction jobs, as well as offer a prestigious new address in the heart of Wodonga,” he said.
“We congratulate Central Place on kick-starting the townhouse development and look forward to seeing it come to life.”
The townhouse development will complement the already thriving food and beverage offerings at Junction Place. Central Place’s has also entered into a joint venture with United Cinemas, with construction of a 10-screen cinema and entertainment complex expected to start by early 2021, subject to finance approval.
“These are all really positive milestones for Junction Place and a show of confidence in what is already proving to be a game-changing project for Wodonga,” Mr Ward said.
