What is proposed for the former Faram's hardware?

Following the screening of The Last of the Independents by film maker Kevin Anderson, several people asked what will take its place.
Here is a summary of the proposal taken from VCAT's description [VCAT ref no P1927/2008]:

The proposal is to demolish the rear of an existing shop retaining the front facade, verandah and parapet wall. A new three storey building is proposed behind the retained portion of the existing building comprising the following:
  • basement level containing 13 carspaces at ground floor, four retail tenancies with a total floor area of 474 sq m
  • first floor containing four two bedrooms apartments and two one bedroom apartments. Each dwelling is provided with a balcony facing the street or rear boundary.
