Wondering if anyone has noticed the strange mash-up that is the broader render - you have current North Sydney mixed with pre-Barangaroo CBD...

It's not just the exterior that appears to be from another time - the floorplans show that this building will be full of generously-sized apartments! When I first scanned upwards' post I feared we were going to lose another of North Sydney's interesting buildings, but wow, what a surprise.

I am loving all these new developments in North Sydney but we NEED some more proper public infrastructure/green space. I usually just sit at my desk to eat lunch because there is no where to sit outside that isnt't cold, concrete or loud.

On the drawing of ground level it is RL65m on Harnett st.

But it also says on bottom of this drawing and elevations that Level G is RL69.5m

In an ideal world large parts of the southern end of the warringah freeway could be sunk underground / built over as some parts near the cbd are already slightly below ground level. Parks and amenities built over the top. would give the whole eastern side of Nth Syd parkland and some pretty sweet views. But who would pay for all that?

It is actually a planning proposal that has been lodged so this will have to be sent for approval by Dept of Planning before a DA can be lodged

If the council approves the Planning Proposal then it will probably be approved by DOP.

There was a plan to do something like that, around 1985, between the High Street and Mount Street overpasses. But as you say, who and how would you pay for it?

The level of the lowest, significant, open-air, pedestrian entrance is 69.5m so it is 156.3m high.

the area below lowest point is right up against facade. soooo many buildings are measured like this.i dont think it needs to have a pedesterian entrance? just as long its part of the site which this certainly is.would be silly to take it from rl69m if the site goes down a further 4m?

Well if we are measuring from the lowest point of the site now rather than the CTBUH rules then a lot of buildings are going to get a height boost.

Are you sure?

Using this same criteria the lowest entry point of Aurora Melbourne Central (a carpark entrance) would result in a tower height of 271m (not the current listed height of 269m).

Is it not a CTBUH rule that it is from the lowest pedestrian entrance that is used as the origin point for tower height? I would expect this to be a black and white rule, not a shade of grey.

Lowest point at street level not secondary ramp like a carpark ect , just your normal street level footpath looking straight up , it's definitely rl65m and if Yu took a measure tape straight up it would measure 161m

Gee your really confusing the issue, it's always been lowest part of site front a public road or footpath! Obviously not including any ramps ect, it used to he height from main entry, but now lowest point
Il make an enquiry and s be plans in to ctbuh but I'm sure il be right. Ive had to amend so many over the years because of new rule mueasure from lowest point.
