Crown Resorts has not been able to secure an extension from the Victorian Government for a planning permit for a proposed hotel and apartment tower in Melbourne’s CBD. Crown had proposed to build the $1.75 billion tower opposite its casino under a joint venture with Schiavello Group. Under the terms of their planning permit, Crown and Schiavello had two years to commence development before the permit expired. However, they were unable to secure suitable financing arrangements for the tower, which would have been the tallest in Australia.
