Emerald Hill, South Melbourne

Project status update – June 2024

As part of the plan to redevelop Melbourne’s 44 high-rise towers, Homes Victoria is revisiting its approach to the Emerald Hill site to ensure an integrated approach to the whole neighbourhood.

The redevelopment of Melbourne’s high rise housing towers is the next big step in providing more and better designed homes for Victorians who need it most.

To ensure public safety at Emerald Hill, Homes Victoria will continue with plans to demolish the older walk-ups in late 2024.

We will continue to work closely with renters and community on the future of the site.
