Oreana has applied to develop a small shopping centre, gym, medical complex and 23 townhouses on a 1.4 hectare piece of Satterley’s Bluestone estate, in Melbourne’s west Tarneit.
If approved, construction will begin next year.
Elsewhere in the suburb, Oreana is completing The Square Tarneit, on Sayers Road, with retail, childcare and a service station.
Last week, the developer, led by brothers Steven and Tony Sass, acquired land earmarked for the Cranbourne East Town Centre for $8.3 million from McDonald’s.
Its development pipeline also includes a large format retail complex at Geelong’s Armstrong Creek and a hospitality-based mixed use complex in South Yarra, the suburb it is headquartered.
Bluestone is taking shape at 800 Derrimut Road, a 44.8ha site Perth-based Satterley purchased from New Sky Group for $54.7m in mid-2021.
Being marketed in stages, it is expected to contain 461 dwellings – a mix of low and medium density.
Other housing estates in the immediate area include Creekstone, being delivered by Macson, and SIG Group’s Harlow (story continues below).
The Oreana proposal will contain a restaurant precinct and 1000 square metre supermarket.
It will also include a piazza and parkland.
“The…townhouses will extend either side of the town centre facing outwards with uninterrupted views of the wetlands or Robinsons Farm Parkland Reserve,” Tony Sass, said.
“Our main focus has been on the design and on how we tie together the new with the old, paying homage to the area’s heritage with the use of bluestone within the village centre, including within the building’s façade and public spaces,” he added.
“Another key feature of the design is fostering connection from the adjoining waterways and parkland through the centre, which culminates in the proposed new village piazza,” according to the executive.
“Our vision is that the centre and its piazza will become a meeting place where the Tarneit community can shop, eat and access vital community services”.
