Hayball’s proposed development of the former Yorkshire Brewery in Collinwood has been given approval by VACT following an initial rejection by the City of Yarra Council, sighting concern for the height of the development.

The 350-dwelling development will comprise several buildings ranging from three to 17 storeys with 4 Star Green Star as-built ratings. As a central element in the design, the existing brew tower will house loft-style apartments and will stand a distance from the largest of the apartment buildings.

The project will start construction in June.
