Over the last five months, the City of Melbourne and Mackie Group have been working together to meet the obligations of the Contract of Sale for the development site at 207 City Road, Southbank.
A portion of the site was sold to the Mackie Group in 2011 and the proposed development was to include housing, retail, car parking and open space.
Three previous extensions of time were granted in an endeavour to facilitate a successful contractual outcome, with the last agreed deadline to meet these obligations being 30 April 2016. Unfortunately an agreement was not reached and the Contract of Sale has been terminated.
As a result of the contract termination, we are creating a temporary park for the community by removing the existing site fence and improving the amenity.
The temporary park will open by the end of May and will remain in place until the future use of the site is determined by Council.
