Development Summary

ratio: have recently obtained planning approval for the development of 830 Plenty Road, Reservoir comprising 321 apartments across four towers, and 17 townhouses designed by Architeria Architects. 

The scale of the proposal and its strategic location (being positioned in a proposed DDO area and recognised as a good candidate for high density development) necessitated early and ongoing engagement with Council Officers and other key stakeholders including VicRoads. Whilst VicRoads were originally opposed to the development, the multidisciplinary ratio: team were able to resolve this and ultimately obtained VicRoads support. 

ratio's consultative approach resulted in a positive officer recommendation, and the granting of a Notice of Decision at a Council Meeting in July. No appeal was lodged by objectors, with a permit issuing in August.  

ratio: are pleased to be involved in this landmark Reservoir project which heralds the regeneration of the north.
