We are very excited to announce the launch of The Victoria Street Collective.
In June we managed to purchase lot 1 at 490-492 Victoria Street Brunswick West, the 787 sqm vacant lot on the north eastern corner of the One Planet Living eco-village Westwyck. This site had been intended for stage 2 of the Westwyck development.
The initial members of the collective are keen to use a baugruppen approach to develop an intergenerational community that reflects some of the ground breaking built form and community outcomes that Mike Hill and Lorna Pitt were able to achieve with Westwyck stage 1.
We plan on developing the site into 6 dwellings in a mixed typology project featuring a mix of townhouses and apartments of differing sizes. The collective is keen to explore incorporating a number of communal features like a shared garden, roof deck, laundry and bike storage.
We currently have 4 members of the collective and are looking for another 2 people to join over the next few months.
