LOT 564 DP 776383 - 212-220 SUMMER STREET AND POST OFFICE LANE, ORANGE
DEMOLITION (GROUND, FIRST AND SECOND FLOORS, AND ROOF OF EXISTING RETAIL TENANCY), AND COMMERCIAL PREMISES (ALTERATIONS AND ADDITIONS INCLUDING ELEVATED OUTDOOR DINING AREA)
A new development application, to demolish parts of the former Myer site, to make way for a new shopping complex has been lodged.
The proposal is to demolish the ground, first and second floors as well as the roof but to maintain the Summer Street and Post Office Lane facade.
A new portal frame with new roof will be constructed behind the existing facades to provide a single level of retail floor space which will provide for 15 separate retail tenancies and two kiosks, along with back-of-house facilities and amenities.
The application also involves the construction of an elevated deck in Post Office lane to provide outdoor dining opportunities in the laneway.
The purpose of the elevated deck in Post Office Lane is to provide alfresco dining with the same finished floor level as the adjoining shops without impacting upon the heritage significant underground cellar in the north-eastern corner of the existing building.
The development application will be on exhibition from Monday, 8 January 2018 until Monday, 29 January 2018 at Council's office at the Customer Service Counter, ground floor, Civic Centre - corner of Byng Street and Lords Place, Orange - during ordinary office hours, being 9.00am to 5.00 pm Monday to Friday, or you can download them from this page.
