Tired and dirty, or revitalised and iconic?

It seems everyone has a view on the current state of Chapel Street: what’s gone right, what’s gone wrong, and whether it can restore its place as Melbourne’s number one retail hot spot.

While most agree the Windsor end is pumping – vacancy rates are well below average and there seems to be a new cafe opening each week – it’s the South Yarra end that has been the “problem child” of the strip.

“There has been a lull and there are still a few vacancies [but] it’s turned the corner,” said John Lotton, president of the Chapel Street Precinct organisation.

“After a few years of high vacancy and looking a bit tired, after a hell of a lot of effort … the look and feel of the street is turning and it’s improving and it’s cleaner.”

With a couple of retail centres, namely Jam Factory and Como, lacking street appeal, there are hopes the multibillion-dollar Capitol Grand development on the Toorak Road intersection, set to open in three years, will deliver a major boost in luxury brands and foot traffic.

In the meantime, a small number of new retailers are moving in to capitalise on reduced rents and a resurgence in interest from the mushrooming population of apartment dwellers.

Canadian beauty and healthcare brand Deciem is set to open its first Australian store on Chapel Street in August. Joint CEO Nicola Kilner said the company, which is also opening stores in Toronto, Seoul and Sydney, has avoided the central CBD for its flagships.

“We want diversity. Chapel Street has a huge mix of brands but the charm of the independents,” she said.

Dimitria Papafotiou, whose first boutique DIIDA has been open a month, has bet the early success of her label on the resurgence of Chapel Street, specifically the “Paris end” near Toorak Road.

“I know it’s been quieter but every time I have had to shop for an outfit, Chapel Street has been the place to go,” she said.

But DIIDA was not a roll-of-the-dice decision. Papafotiou sent hours sitting in cafes on High Street, Armadale, and Malvern Road, Hawksburn, before settling on the site.

She nominated more eateries and better marketing as ways to help revitalise the strip.

“There’s so much going on now [on Chapel Street]. Luxury living is coming up here. If you just turn around the corner on to Toorak Road, there is lots of growth happening. It’s coming back and … I want to be part of Chapel Street coming back to its former glory.”

While some major brands exited Chapel Street for Emporium or High Street, Armadale, denim label Diesel has firmly dug in its heels, opening a flagship in late 2014. And Witchery’s new flagship opened this weekend.

Diesel brand manager Antony Hampson acknowledges the strip has had issues but is confident it will “reinvent itself”.

“I don’t think it’s anything the precinct has done, more it’s just a general trend of people shopping in centres,” he says.

Hampson said the weather, parking, opening of fast-fashion megastores like H&M in the CBD all contributed to the mixed fortunes of Chapel Street but maintains it will “always be considered a premium fashion destination”.   The rumours are true. #DECIEM stores are opening in #Toronto (this picture), #Melbourne, #Sydney and #Seoul.

Some observers are less convinced of a fashion resurgence along Chapel Street.

Retail industry specialist Martin Ginnane, who did some work on the Capitol Grand development in its early stages, said Chapel Street had “suffered from its own success” over the past decade.

He said a strategy to attract “more organic” and independent retailers had largely failed because they couldn’t afford the rent.   Well if you must Chap lap… @fraxnces_A photo posted by Chapel Street Precinct (@chapelprecinct) on Jun 27, 2016 at 10:04pm PDT

Mr Ginnane, who lives in the area, said at last count there were about 25 empty shops between Toorak and Malvern roads.

“The thing that will save Chapel Street from really bleeding is the vacancy rates on Toorak Road [South Yarra] … have dropped to around 7 per cent,” he said.

However, he doubts it will ever again be the fashion destination it was, with food and convenience retailers having dominance.   Thanks for sharing this progressive photo of the Capitol Grand site @laurendibartolo #CapitolGrand #LKPropertyGroup #Demolition #SouthYarra #Melbourne #ProgressA photo posted by Capitol Grand South Yarra (@capitolgrand_) on Jun 15, 2016 at 4:44pm PDT

“Chapel Street just doesn’t have an identity at the moment … it’s up to Stonnington [council] to really clean it up,” he said.

Stonnington mayor Claude Ullin has a plan, which includes $20 million to be spent on the precinct over the next four years, including more open space and better footpaths.

He said a future Chapel Street could see a more egalitarian approach to retail mix where the tenants decide who moves in, a system that works well in some cities in the US, Canada and Europe.   SOUTH YARRA REPRESENTIt’s lunchtime, get down for our surprise muffin flavour and freshly made salads!

Approaches have been made to the state government along these lines but it will take changes to legislation, he said.

He is also hopeful of launching a ferry service along the Yarra between the city and Chapel Street. Other ideas include the installation of scramble crossings to improve pedestrian movement.

He said it was a misconception that Chapel Street competes most with the mega malls such as Chadstone.   This time last week we were hosting our Media Launch Party! We still can’t get over how amazing it was – what a way to demand attention!

“It’s nowhere near as competitive as with the city,” he said. “We want to bring people out of the city and into Stonnington.”

Ginnane said the council should look to how the City of Yarra has defined Church Street, Richmond, as a home furnishings hub, and encourage more pop-ups to conceal empty shops.

“Retail moves so quickly and you have to be working with retailers constantly. Councils don’t have a really good understanding of what makes retail work. You have to look at a place and say, ‘What do we want to make this?'”

Local students have developed their teamwork and communication skills after attending the 2016 Lake Burrendong excursion.
苏州美甲美睫培训学校

Forbes Shire Council and Evolution Mining, partnering with local schools, provided 109 students with a subsidised three-day trip to the NSW Sport and Recreation Camp.

Year 5 students from Forbes North Public School, Forbes Public School, St Laurence’s Primary School and Bedgerabong Public School attended the camp last week.

The camp provides the students with challenging logical and physical activities that not only promote healthy living, but increase and develop teamwork, communication skills, negotiation and responsibility.

Forbes Shire Council’s Youth Development Assistant Clarissa Stewart said the camp was a great opportunity for the students to experience the outdoors.

“They are able to step out of their comfort zones, learn, challenge, grow and develop,” she said.

Mayor Phyllis Miller OAM said the partnership between Council and Evolution Mining has given students the opportunity to build relationships with students from other schools before transitioning into high school.

“Lake Burrendong is a very unique location and it really is a great experience that helps build confidence,” Mayor Miller said.

“Council is pleased to be able to support this trip and we also appreciate the support from Evolution Mining.”

Planning is already underway for next year’s event with dates set for June 21 to 23.

KEY: Scott Bartlem was one of Warners Bay’s best in a resounding win over Terrigal-Avoca on Saturday. Picture: Jonathan CarrollWARNERS BAY coach Marty Reiman hopes his side have shown this year’s Black Diamond AFL premiership is not another two-horse race after they suffocated reigning premiers Terrigal-Avoca at Feighan Park on Saturday.

The Panthers and leaders City were threatening to run away with the competition for another year, but the Bulldogs beat Terrigal-Avoca for the second time this season to show they can beat the top two on their day.

Jack Hardman kicked four goals and Scott Bartlem two as the home side won 11.12 (78) to6.10 (46) after leading by four goals at half-time and restricting the lethalPanthers forward line to a single behind in the third term.

“I rate it up there with one of the best of the year,” Reiman said. “I think it places us in a good spot to make finals and, without looking too far ahead, if we play that consistent football, I can’t see why we can’t match it with other sides.It was just a very disciplined performance.

“The guys went out with the mindset to play hard, man-on-man football.We matched them really well. I don’t think Terrigal were off.”

The win moved the Bulldogsinto fourth with four rounds to play,four pointsclear of Nelson Bay, who lost by 64points to City.Kevin McDonald kicked seven majors as the Blues cruised to a19.9 (123) to9.5 (59) triumph at No.1 Sportsground.

Cardiff completed a weekend clean sweep by Newcastle sides, thrashing Killarney Vale by 100 points at Adelaide Street Oval.

Aaron Wivell led the way with six majorsand Josh Murphy and Jackson McMahon kicked four each in the22.17 (149) to7.7 (49) victory.

LeagueleadersEast Wagga-Kooringal turned in one of their best four-quarter efforts of the season on Saturday, with an impressive 46-pointwin over Marrar at Langtry Oval.

ANOTHER HAUL: Marc Geppert’s seven goals against Marrar was the sixth time this year he’s kicked more than half-a-dozen. Picture: Les Smith

A week after proving they can dig their way out of a hole (against North Wagga), the Hawks showed it’s even better if you don’tfall into one, building a comfortable15.13 (103) to 8.9 (57) victory.

“I was happy with it,” EWK coach Gavin McMahon said.

“For the first time, we just competed hard for four quarters instead of for one or two.The scoreboard might not have reflected that but for effort, intensity, tackling and all that sort of stuff, it was really good.”

Seven behinds in the first quarter wasn’t ideal but five straight goals in the second helped the Hawks stretch an 18-point lead out to 34 by half-time.

EWK’s seven goals to Marrar’sfive in the second half completed a maturedisplay against a teamwith plenty to play forafter a horror day at The Rock last week.

And the Bombers were much-improved, led by a superb Brad Turner who switched to full-forward and made the most of plenty of space to kicksix goals.

He was bettered only by Marc Geppert at the other end, who finished with seven, takinghis season tally to 65 goals in 11 games.

“Gep played very well,” McMahon said.

“All seven of his goals were varied – from good marks on a lead to contested marking to being in the right place at the right time.

“His form’s been really good the last few weeks. I reckon he’s playing better than last season, even if his goal output isn’t showing it.”

Geppert had 75 goals after 11 games last season but more importantly on Saturday was one of eight goalkickers for the Hawks as theytrialled a new-look forward line that would be the envy of any of their rivals.

Throwing Blake Aichinger into the ruck, EWKwere able to play Nick Hull (four goals in a quarter last week) alongside Geppert and regular centre-half-forwardBilly Mearns also went deep in a fearsome line-up.

The Hawks had lost James Hodges to a hamstring strain during the warm-up, forcing Kassidy Argus to back up from reserve grade –andplay his 150thand 151stgames for EWK on the same day.

But Bryce McPherson did all he could to nail down a regular first grade spot, following up his strong game against North Waggawith an “outstanding” performance around the packs to be named the Hawks’ best.

Apart from Turner, midfielder Josh Hagar impressed for the Bombersas well as defender Clint Taylor,playing on Hull.

The loss keeps the heat on fifth-placed Marrar but they can control their own destiny with games against the two teams below them –Temora and North Wagga –in the next two weeks.
