The Espy will re-open!

The City of Port Phillip approved the planning permit to remodel the Espy.

Deputy Mayor Serge Thomann took to social media to summarise the outcome:

“A very long night for the last Planning Committee meeting last night that finished after midnight with 12 items on the agenda and about 50 speakers. I am very pleased to report that we approved the planning permit for the refurbishment of the Esplanade Hotel – I hope it reopens soon as we all miss the Espy and we can’t wait! Live music will continue but the food offering will be much better including a roof top terrace above the entry on the first floor with strict conditions regarding noise and people management for the terrace. A great outcome for live music, St Kilda residents and its visitors and a sustainable Espy of the future.”

“We also refused the proposal for the new development on the Novotel site. The proposal was just not good enough for arguably the most prominent site on the foreshore.”
