The Foundry development on the corner of Alexandra Parade and Smith Street, Clifton Hill was approved by VCAT with only some minor conditions. Residents’ hopes for a better outcome were shattered with the release of VCAT’s decision. The Tribunal members rejected every ground of objection raised by a number of objectors who had committed a great deal of time and money to arguing the case for a better outcome for local residents . The developer is now free to construct its massive office towers which will rise to a height of 48 metres, 50% higher than both the highest building in the Gasworks and the nearby Trilby apartments in Smith Street.
