Suburban Box Hill in Melbourne to get 51 story tower



Whitehorse City Council has approved plans for 51-storey residential, office and retail tower in Box Hill—making it the tallest building in the state outside central Melbourne.

The council supported three planning permits for Vicinity Centres’ 10-year masterplan, which aims to transform 5.5ha at Box Hill Central into a mixed-use and retail precinct. The combined total investment is expected to be around $700 million.

Box Hill Central is set to become one of Melbourne’s biggest private mixed-use developments, and the first stage is expected to deliver more than 50,000sq m of commercial office space, 366 apartments and 3350sq m of new public spaces.
