The Valley of Tomorrow

Who is the developer?

The Moonee Valley Racing Club has appointed the joint venture development team Hostplus-Hamton to deliver The Valley of Tomorrow. You can read more about each of the project partners here

Are the plans approved?

In March 2015 the State Government approved the planning scheme amendment for the precinct, following a period of consultation via a Planning Advisory Committee. This means the planning framework (including height and setback controls and traffic requirements) and indicative planning framework layout has been approved, however the development team is required to seek permit approval from the City of Moonee Valley for each successive stage of the development.

Can I object?

There are no third party rights to object to the activities that reference the approved planning framework. However, Hostplus-Hamton is committed to engaging with the community and welcomes conversation. You can ensure your voice is heard in the following ways:

When does construction start?

The first step in this long development journey is to engage with key stakeholders, particularly the community. Although there is a vision for The Valley of Tomorrow, Hostplus-Hamton will refine it throughout 2018, steadily unveiling more detailed plans from the latter part of this year.

During this period, the development team will commence a community engagement process to learn more about the community’s aspirations and priorities for the area.

Construction timelines will depend on a range of factors including market conditions and Council approval.

How long will the project take?

The project will span approximately 15 to 20 years, with the length impacted by a range of uncontrollable factors including planning approvals, real estate market conditions, the political landscape and much more.

What will be first?

Hostplus-Hamton are prioritising the delivery of housing to fill a gap in the current market and begin to activate the site. In assessing the current housing stock in the local area and therefore identifying gaps, the first phase of development will be focused on the delivery of two blocks of high quality townhouses fronting McPherson St, north of the main MVRC vehicle entrance.

How many apartments will there be?

Due to the long-term nature of this project, it is too early to provide a final number of apartments. The number of apartments will respond to market needs over time.
