Having reduced Bent Street Bentleigh to ‘Calcutta’, developers are now moving into the next street – Vickery St. In the current agenda there is an application for 4 storeys, 47 dwellings over 3 lots (15-19 Vickery). This site backs onto Bent St (14-16) where a permit was granted for 4 storeys and 50 dwellings. Thus 6 houses now make way for 97 units!

But as with Carnegie, where developers first ruined Elliott Avenue, then set their sights on Tranmere, and the next street along, Vickery in Bentleigh is going the same way – all due to its zoning as Residential Growth Zone.

Other properties recently sold or being developed in Vickery include:

24-26 Vickery – sold for $3.6 million (2015)

14 Vickery – permit for 10 x 2 storey townhouses
