it's a vanilla-filla, not bad, not drop dead, but a competent addition. Actually probably a bit on the better side of average, grey glass and white is elegant so I give them props for that.

Reminds me of some Devine stuff tbh.

It'll cover up a decent proportion of T&G from the Southside.

Gah - so short! I know it's not all about height, but at least they could TRY!

Street level doesn't seem very appropriate for QSM area.

Care to elaborate?

I think the street level will benefit from this proposal.
-Three levels of retail accomodating up to four new stores...
-Two, 2 storey shops
-Potential to accommodate a high profile flagship store such as Apple

Holy shit dude, let it GO! Every time there's a potential retail development around the QSM area you crow about how Apple a sure to move into this one. What happened to the last three places you said Apple are "probably going to check out"?

1) This is a forum and people are allowed to express their views and opinions
2) I said the two level store would be a good flagship store for a company such as Apple
3) Find me a post where I ever said that Apple was sure to move in
4) It hasn't been just me that has spoken about potential Apple stores so stop making out like it was

hahaha....

The only people seeing any benefit in something like this will be the developers.

It says 'Arcade opening' - does this imply there is some kind of arcade? Wowsers. Maybe they'll call it Apple Arcade.

The DA was only lodged last month so not approved yet, although there is another slightly shorter office building proposed for this site which was rejected in April (A001906022), so this might be a modified version of that. Some more stats for this one:

Height: 16storeys (2 plant levels on top) with 2 basement levels - 60.85m above ground
Floor-to-floor height: 3.55m
GFA: 8819sqm NLA: 6255sqm
Width: 21.4m Length 31.1m
Lifts: 3 + 1 goods lift
Parking spaces: 37 bikes, 0 cars
