$320 million Box Hill medical precinct gets green light


Big things are coming to Box Hill, home to Prospect, after a $320 million private medical and education development was approved.

The expansion is part of APH Holding’s Wellington Health project, which will see the development of a 20-level building with more than 30,000sqm of medical facilities. Its anchor tenant will be Eastern Health – the Box Hill Hospital – which neighbours the Wellington Health site.

Wellington Health is set to be a ground-breaking medical precinct fit for the future of Box Hill and surrounding suburbs. Combining state-of-the-art medical and technology facilities with lifestyle amenities including a private health club, retail outlets, food court and hotel accommodation, this project is tipped support growing medical demand in the region.

The expansion will take six years to build at 12-22 Wellington Road.

In a statement made on LinkedIn, APH Holding Chief Executive Officer Johnson Zhang said it is the developer’s “vision to provide these services for the growing population of the South-Eastern Corridor of Melbourne”.

“With the planning and construction of the Suburban Rail Loop and the Box Hill station, the medical demand in and around Box Hill will be stronger than ever,” said Mr Zhang.

“The APH Holding team are especially excited by Eastern Health coming on board as the major anchor tenant of Wellington Health One before officially launching the Expressions of Interest (EOI) Campaign for leasing, showing high demand for the project.

“APH Holding is also in final negotiations with a few private healthcare and day surgery operators showing the strong demand for medical facilities and the growth of this sector in the area.

“[The] market has responded with strong interest in particular to our high quality amenities which include a sky lounge and club which will be exclusively made available to the Wellington Health medical professionals.”
