The Victorian Pride Centre is a private building with a public responsibility and will be a landmark development locally, regionally and nationally. The Victorian Pride Centre will be the civic hub for the LGBTQI community and will be the first building of its kind in Australia.

The Victorian Pride Centre is located in Fitzroy Street, St Kilda and will be a mixed-use civic building comprised of community and commercial office space, shops, food and drink premises, radio station, medical centre, place of assembly, reading room and gallery, among others.

The building has been designed by Brearley Architects and Urbanists and Grant Amon Architects, two local St Kilda architecture firms who won a national Design Competition for the project which was announced by the Premier for Victoria in January 2018. SJB Planning has worked collaboratively with the Victorian Pride Centre board and the City of Port Phillip to produce a site-specific control and proceed with a planning approvals process involving a request to the Minister for Planning to amend the Port Phillip Planning Scheme and rezone a portion of the land via Section 20(4) of the Planning and Environment Act 1987.

The amendment process has been subject to an extensive community consultation process and to date has received high levels of support from various key stakeholders including local community members and the City of Port Phillip.

The Amendment has been approved by the Minister for Planning. SJB Planning looks forward to assisting and advising the Victorian Pride Centre through the remainder of the planning approvals process and facilitating the preparation of documentation to ensure timely construction of this exciting project.
