Key details

541 Sydney Road, Coburg

Policy objective
Affordable housing 


541 Sydney Road, Coburg is an affordable housing development located in one of Melbourne’s most diverse and inclusive communities, close to Melbourne's CBD.

The site is owned by Development Victoria, and is currently vacant. It has excellent linkages to services and amenities including transport, jobs, leisure facilities, schools and retail services.

The zoning of the site as an ‘Activity Centre’, allows for and encourages affordable housing, car-free transport and integrated mixed-use developments. The site is currently vacant but was previously occupied by the former Commonwealth Dyers Association plant.

The goal of this project is to support state and local government policy frameworks to improve housing affordability, access and choice across Victoria. As such, Development Victoria is facilitating the delivery of an affordable housing outcome through the sale of the site, with a retail or commercial component at ground floor level.

Development Victoria have released an Expression of Interest (EOI) to create an affordable housing development with a retail or commercial component at the ground floor level, and are currently in negotiation with the preferred EOI Respondent. 




The site is located approximately 8km north of the CBD, within the Moreland City Council region.
