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.

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 will be activating 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 remain under review with some core activities already completed 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 post masterplan endorsement.

The Childcare Centre

The Childcare Centre officially opened its doors in June 2019 in the notable heritage building on the corner of McPherson & Thomas Streets once home to the former Secretary of the Moonee Valley Racing Club.

The MVRC funded the childcare centres redevelopment, with full oversight on the refurbishment and has secured a long-term lease with Think Childcare (Nido Early Learning) with the capacity to care for up to 91 children. The Childcare was sold in March 2020 to enable funds to be reinvested into the MVRC’s redevelopment activities. As the property is controlled under a heritage overlay the building will be protected in its refurbished heritage form.

Tote

Renovations have been underway on the original Tote building built in 1931 situated within the Tote Park. The building is of historical significance to the MVRC and is being respectfully restored to its former glory as it transforms into a contemporary food and beverage offering that will be retained and managed by the Club.

The Tote building will feature prominently along the McPherson Street façade and includes prominent windows providing spectacular vantage points for diners. The design response unites the creative expertise of Samantha Eades Design and Field Office Architecture to deliver a design that shows reverence to the site’s proud racing history, while seamlessly providing an extension to appeal to modern audiences.

The MVRC plans to announce its operational program for TOTE Bar & Dining early in 2021.

Introducing Tote Park

Our recent annual survey of over 300 local residents identified a strong desire for a more public open space in the area and the team behind Moonee Valley Park is proud to play our part in meeting this community need.

MVRC Stage B1/B2 Advertising MV/222/2018

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.
