Redevelopment of The Glen shopping centre

New look for The Glen - Springvale Road frontage

In July 2015, Council approved plans for a $500 million redevelopment of The Glen shopping centre in Glen Waverley.

Key features of the redevelopment include:

  • an expansion of the retail centre across the existing car park in Springvale Road, Glen Waverley
  • three apartment towers above the retail podium, with the highest being 20 storeys
  • a new public square at the entrance to the shopping centre, with cafes and restaurants creating a cosmopolitan connection between Kingsway and The Glen.

In response to community concerns, Council reduced the height of the project's tallest building from 24 storeys to 20 storeys.

More information on Council's decision is available in this media release.

Amended permit 2017

In January 2018, Council approved amendments to the residential towers which form part of the Planning Permit for The Glen Towers at 235 Springvale Rd, Glen Waverley. 

Key aspects of the proposed amendments relate to modification of the overall massing, layout and mix of residential apartments of Building A, (Signature Building), B (Urban Building) and Building C (Kingsway Axial Building).

Each building will increase in overall height by 1 metre and will adopt a new facade treatment.

In November 2016, Council approved an amended permit for the redevelopment. The main changes made to the redevelopment were:

  • Increasing the overall number of apartments from 427 apartments to 539 apartments
  • Increasing the height of the smallest tower from 9 storeys to 12 storeys
  • Reducing a requirement that 20% of dwellings be three bedroom to make it that 10% of dwellings be three bedroom.
