Fortuna Villa – a great start to 2017!
It was with a great deal of satisfaction that the planning permit for 79 architecturally designed and landscaped contemporary dwellings around the lake of Bendigo’s historic “Fortuna Villa” was received on the 23 December 2016 – an exciting Christmas present and great beginning to 2017 for the developers (Fortuna Villa Estate Pty Ltd) and Tomkinson Group as Planners, Engineers, Surveyors, and Project Managers. The receipt of the permit enables detail design to begin in earnest. Stage one construction, consisting of thirteen modern tri-level dwellings, with views out towards Mount Alexander, is set to commence this year.
The exciting 55 million dollar project in the mansion grounds will sensitively allow for a unique medium destiny housing development, diversifying housing options available in Bendigo, whilst maintaining the integrity of the historic villa and a portion of the grounds and historic trees. Fortuna Villa will continue its revitalisation, and is open to the public for high teas and functions.
