Leo’s Fine Food and Wine Supermarket, Hartwell Summerhill Road, Glen Iris VIC

role Architecture value $12 million area 10,000m² completed date May 2010

peckvonhartel is currently documenting Leo’s Fine Food and Wine Supermarket in Hartwell, just beyond the central shopping strip on Toorak Road. The project has been three years in planning.

This boutique supermarket is the third addition to Leo’s supermarket group, following successful ventures in Kew and Heidelberg.

The proposal is a 2,700m² supermarket with an entry from Summerhill Road. One of the site challenges was to retain 143 existing public carpark spaces, over and above the development requirement for carparking. A further challenge was to ensure the development fell within the council’s volumetric guidelines for the site.
