Alphington Paper Mills Development
from the Herald Sun Newspaper
A NEW mini-suburb in Melbourne’s inner north will be built on the former Amcor paper mill site, after the State Government approved new planning controls.
The developer paid $120 million for this site.
I don’t have any news but I have a few pics of the buildings just as they are about to be demolished. I believe they have come to a stop to clean up or investigate soil contamination. I don’t know anything about that either but I have some pics to share with those of you that know this site. I really wish for a modern 2014 style of architecture (not something toned down to suit heritage houses in the area, hope its an environmentally friendly development that will also consider some community spaces for the neighbours. Maybe a community room or gallery would be nice.
Good luck to the planners with traffic management etc. We will all be affected but it could be a stunning addition that will be inclusive of our community and may make people just want to live here even more. I respect the old and I love the new. Just a little collage that is making it’s way to North Carolina U.S.A.
