Project Updates

Keeping You Informed

This year has seen significant progress for The Valley of Tomorrow with the official launch of Stage A – Feehan Row Homes and Terraces, a planning permit for Stage B – Thomas St issued and planning application lodgement for Stage B – Buildings 1 and 2.

This will see us commence construction in due course and we would like to keep you informed on everything project related, including construction dates and timeframes, infrastructure development, traffic management plans and planning applications.

As with any major works, we are conscious that this can cause disruptions to neighbouring residents and businesses.  We will use all endeavours to minimise this impact.

A permit application has been lodged with Council to obtain approval for multi-level buildings of residential apartments with offices, cafes and restaurants at the ground and first floor levels. The development proposes to integrate 3 building forms with varying architectural styles and will be designed to front future parkland to be created at Stone Pine Park. The development will also front out to the racecourse so has been designed to optimise views and highly articulate the building form to provide visual interest from the surrounding road networks.


The development has been designed to be consistent with the provisions of the Moonee Valley Planning Scheme in particular the Activity Centre Zone that applies to the land. The permit application is currently in a public notice of application phase. Council will then review submissions (if any) and make a decision on the permit application. We looks forward to obtaining permit approval to continue to develop this exciting urban renewal project at Moonee Valley Park.

New Grandstand and Clubhouse

The state of the art new Grandstand will be built on Wilson Street as per the masterplan which responds to the Special Use Zoning of the land with delivery programmed for Q3 2026. The evolving Grandstand design is now envisaged to incorporate an amazing Clubhouse on the corner of Thomas and Wilson Streets with uninterrupted sweeping views to the Melbourne CBD.

MVRC will engage with the community through the detailed design phase with the planning submission anticipated to be lodged in 2021. The existing Grandstand (and Legends) will remain operational until demolition commences after the 2024 Cox Plate.

The Infield

The land located in the centre of the track referred to as the Infield, will remain owned, operated and managed by the Moonee Valley Racing Club. This area of the racecourse is only utilised for racing events and larger non racing events when required. As part of the redevelopment MVRC in collaboration with its development partner and Moonee Valley City Council is looking to activate the Infield year round for non-racing future uses for the benefit of local residents and the greater community.

Infrastructure requirements through and within the Infield to service the redevelopment of the area remains under review with some core activities already commencing on site (trunk sewer). The infrastructure requirements for racing operations i.e. track reconfiguration is in the concept design stage with the detailed design process to commence on 2020.
