A prominent redevelopment project is on the horizon for the Kings Row office precinct in Milton, with four new buildings planned for 50 McDougall Street in a transformation that is also expected to preserve the historic Milton House.



The mixed-use development is designed by Urbis. The nature of the land uses for these buildings has not been specified in the application (DA A006291436).  However, the proposal suggests that potential uses may encompass commercial office space, community facilities, and residential dwellings, including short-term accommodation and multiple dwellings.

The project will be divided into two precincts and implemented across two stages of development.

The first stage, the Milton House Precinct, is set to include the preservation of Milton House and the creation of Heritage Square, along with the construction of Building 1 and its associated basement parking. 

The second stage, known as the Village Green Precinct, will feature the development of the Village Green and Buildings 1, 2, and 3. It covers a diverse range of uses across the site, including multiple dwellings, community activities, educational establishments, food and drink outlets, function facilities, healthcare services, indoor sports and recreation, offices, shops, shopping centres, short-term accommodation, veterinary services, retirement facilities, residential care facilities, rooming accommodations, and bars.

Key features of the proposed development include four towers, varying in height from 30 to 37 storeys, a Village Green spanning 1,500 square metres, a Heritage Square covering 2,000 square metres, and laneways with outdoor dining facilities spanning 1,500 square metres.

The project aligns with the high-density residential and mixed-use zoning of the area and is considered compatible with the neighbourhood’s growth requirements.

“The proposed variation request aims to secure the key development parameters, including building height, site cover, and boundary setbacks, to enable the delivery of four towers within a public plaza setting,” Urbis cited. “The towers are intended to accommodate a range of uses, including multiple dwellings, serviced apartments, short-term accommodation, vertical retirement living, and office tenancies.”



The DA is currently under public notification from 12 Sept to 26 Oct 2023. As of press time, only one submission has been lodged, opposing the project because the proposed green space is in a major traffic area.
