Longtime readers of this blog may recall that back in 2010 an apartment block was being advertised at Caulfield, smack bang between where the Frankston and Dandenong lines diverge.
It was never built. Google Street View shows by 2014 the site was still empty, and the advertising sign was covered in graffiti.
Around 2016 the site was taken over by the Level Crossing Removal Authority for use during the Caulfield To Dandenong “skyrail” project.
But most of the land is now clear again, and in the past month or two, an advertising sign (only visible to passing train passengers) has gone up.
It looks to me like part of the land has been used for the skyrail tracks, which were placed slightly to the south of the old ground level tracks, leaving the development site smaller than before.
A sales office is on the site, and their web site is eastapartments.net.au.
In nine years, the price seems to have gone up by about $100,000.
This development wouldn’t be the first homes on the site. Street View shows much older houses there in early 2010.
As I said in 2010, hopefully the new buildings’ soundproofing is good.
