Monash Council is seeking to reinvigorate the Glen Waverley Activity Centre, to improve car parking and build on the precinct’s reputation as a dining, retail and entertainment destination with more outdoor dining and an attractive and inviting streetscape.
What is being proposed is more than just a car park. It is something entirely different from what we have constructed before. It includes space for commercial enterprise, the possible provision of affordable housing to cater for those who want affordable apartment living in this precinct and an area of open space for community use, all within the one site.
Council has commissioned MGS Architects to prepare a concept design for the site. A key part of this project is the construction of a new multi-deck car park in Montclair Avenue on the existing site of the Glendale West car park on the boundary of the Glen Waverley Activity Centre.

More information is available under Item 1.5 (Agenda/Decisions) to the Council Meeting held on 30 October 2018.
The proposal was available for community consultation, including an online survey and community drop-in information session, with Council keen to hear feedback on the plan.
Council sought community feedback until Friday, 14 December 2018 (online survey until Sunday 16 December 2018).
The multi-deck car park will provide a minimum of 1,044 spaces, including 539 additional car parks, which will be partly funded by the cash in lieu financial contributions already collected under Parking Overlays in the Monash Planning Scheme and the future sale of Council owned land at 41-47 Montclair Avenue, Glen Waverley.
The project will also include the removal of 99 car parks from Kingsway to allow for more outdoor dining and to remove traffic from Kingsway. These car spaces will be incorporated in the new Montclair multi-deck car park.
Council will also consider future improvements to Kingsway and consult on any plans in the future.
The proposal reflects community feedback received through community forums and listening posts, our annual Community Satisfaction Survey and by traders which identified lack of parking as a key concern for Monash residents.
