By the way here are some pics from level 8 of Platinum, around 2 weeks ago on Saturday and a model of the west side of platinum, based on previous models it should look similar. Except for the size of the trees

hmmmm photos to come soon, having technical difficulties

I spent longer and made several sorties into the arcane world of CofS documents and didn't come up with anything concrete so don't feel too bad.
I have a vague recollection of seeing a map in which there was essentially a height limit of 22m (???) or 6 storeys over the Danks Street to McEvoy super site.
Given the amount being asked for the site, even blanket coverage of the entire site to 6 storeys would not give you a return on your money so it would be pointless unless you were a financial masochist.

As posted a month or two ago, Architectus (a reputable architectural firm) designed a potential development scheme for the site which included 2 x 22 storeys towers and three 6 or 7 storey blocks. I assume they based their scheme on available information (thus my reference to 'reputable') which would make it a much more attractive investment.

At 22 storeys it would give a tower of around 72m in height.

Congratulations to Meriton and Turner. Much maligned Meriton has definitely improved the quality of its architectural design in the last decade.

Contains political comment.

GREEN SQUARE AQUATIC CENTRE & GUNYAMA PARK

"10 years on, the design competition for a South Sydney Pool is to be completed

This coming Monday, Council will consider an item to award the winners of a design competition for the Green Square Pool. Way back in 2005, the City acknowledged the need for a new pool in South Sydney and resolved to build one in Green Square.

Since then, we've seen 6 NSW Premiers, 4 Prime Ministers, 3 Popes, and 2 Swans premierships and - in all this time - only one Lord Mayor who still hasn't managed to build a pool in Green Square.

It's been a long time coming, but the new pool is set to be completed by 2019. With 58,000 residents expected to be living in Green Square by 2036, this is welcome news for the current and future residents of Green Square."

Please let them have chosen a truly creative design; not all the finalists were in that category.

NB: Projected population of 58,000 by 2036.

Can't find any indication that the site has been sold yet which is odd given how fast other sites are being snapped up. The part of the site to be dedicated to council for Gunyama Park may be an issue.
Last ad dated September, 2014, site still for sale.

Found this on web: a+ Design Group (Tony Leung) - no date so I'm not sure how valid it is.

View of 14 storey tower at corner of Epsom Road & [future] George Julius Avenue extension.


Atrium Garden.

These images do not look any different from those published years ago - has architect changed name of firm?

Of Local Interest

BUMING PARK @ PLATINUM
Victoria Park Parade
Zetland


October 29: 3 jacarandas being planted & park lighting being installed.


October 30: late arvo.

After the disappointment of the rather uninteresting planting in Biyanbing Park also on Victoria Park Parade, the fairly uninspired planting of the extension of Woolwash Park and the remarkably dull landscaping of the entrance plaza to East Village shops, it was with some relief that I saw the 3 jacarandas being planted in Buming Park. A welcome change from the Sydney Blue Gums that have seemed to be the only tree planted of late. While the Syd Blue is a fine tree, we have been given rather a lot of them and the plaza and the small parks need feature trees to give them character and interest. Time will tell how the rest of Buming Park is treated.
