A competitive expression of interest process in the ongoing Revitalising Central Dandenong project has seen strong interest from the private sector.
The process focused on a mixed-use development in the heart of Dandenong worth up to $300 million, which is set to be transformed.
Four companies have been shortlisted to progress to the next phase: Capital Alliance Group, Brady Group, MAB and Quintessential Equity.
The two-hectare development site is located next to Dandenong Railway Station and includes the Little India precinct, Melbourne’s longest-standing cluster of Indian culture and commerce.
The four-short-listed companies have acknowledged the cultural significance of the site and have incorporated Indian-themed offerings in their submissions.
A Request for Proposal phase will commence later this month and close in February 2020. After this, Development Victoria will work with the successful developer to consult with the local community and businesses during the design phase, in collaboration with the City of Greater Dandenong.
