230 Burwood Road, Hawthorn
Completed in November 2008
Little Projects purchased the site in 2004 and managed the development process with Bunnings to deliver the first ever multi-level Bunnings in Australasia.
Set within this prime inner-city location, the site had operated as the PMP printing press for decades. As a result significant demolition and environmental works were required to restore the site ready for development. Little Projects managed town planning approvals, design and construction reviews and project managed the build by Becon for Bunnings.
The store includes huge retail floor including a mezzanine level and two levels of underground car parking. The nature of the stock required significant consideration to loading docks for receipt and collection of goods to stock the shelves and goods transfers between retail and car parks for consumers taking into account the height, weight and size of items available in store ie. Planks of wood, BBQ’s, sheets of metal etc.
Providing expertise in commercial and inner city development, Little Projects successfully delivered the new approach for multi-level Bunnings developments across Australasia.
