99 Brewer Road, Bentleigh East
An anomalous industrial site in a residential area, 99 Brewer Road, Bentleigh East was developed by H.CO and designed by MJA Studio. The contemporary four-storey building with basement parking was designed to incorporate elements of the surrounding dwellings to transition seamlessly into the streetscape.
99 Brewer Road will house medical suites, allied health services, a childcare centre and a ground-level café to provide street interaction. The site is zoned Industrial 3 and is surrounded by residentially zoned single dwellings, making these uses more sympathetic and supportive of the local community than an industrial use development.
Joining the project in January 2020, Ratio’s planning, traffic and waste management teams navigated the site’s challenging constraints.
Despite a Notice of Refusal being issued by Council, Ratio was able to negotiate with Council and neighbours to ensure the matter was resolved at a compulsory conference, avoiding the need for a full VCAT hearing.
99 Brewer Road has recently obtained a planning permit and we look forward to construction commencing.
