Council supports Cairo development

13 May 2013

Council supports Cairo development Image

The City of Melbourne has officially endorsed the plans for Cairo, the development planned to share 229 City Rd with the Boyd Community Centre.

Cairo, to be built by the Mackie Group, is an 87-metre high apartment building, which includes town houses and affordable housing. It has also been touted as the future home for the Australia Ballet.

The site will be completed when a urban park will replace the old classrooms along side Cairo, adding to the existing Boyd Community Centre and Library, which is already in operation.

The council did have a couple of concerns about Cairo, including the building causing the park to be excessively windy and minimising overlooking from the town houses and the east-facing apartments.
