The Charles Street video store is no more.
And the premises’ windows have had placed in them paperwork for a hospitality industry enterprise.
Normally, I would’ve noted this with interest and awaited further material progress.
But in this case, I have been alerted by CTS pal Tennille and colleague Xavier to the presence of plans for the site on the website of the Maribyrnong council.
See the plans here.
I do not know if all such plans submitted to council are as detailed as these.
For they certainly give a very real idea of just what is proposed.
Included are artist impressions such as the one above, as well as information such as a parking analysis, existing site photos, proposed “colour palette” and floorplans.
Also provided is a montage of “inspirational cafes & images”, including shots of Captains Of Industry, Flip Board Cafe and – quite bizarrely it seems to me – Common Galaxia from just up the road!
