Martin gives thumbs up to Darwin tower
Thursday, 5 February 2004

The Northern Territory Chief Minister has indicated she has no objections to a planned 30-storey apartment building in Darwin's CBD, provided it is approved by the Development Consent Authority.

The Darwin company Sunbuild wants to build the 108-unit tower in the city's McMinn street.

It would be the tallest building in the area.

Clare Martin says the large project is a sign of confidence in the local economy.

"We're gradually seeing a CBD where the buildings are getting higher," she said.

"When I first came here 20 years ago there were very few tall buildings.

"Those buildings are increasing and I'm yet to meet anyone much who says they don't like it.

"I think it really establishes Darwin as a city and is something we can really be proud of."


EDIT : Sunbuild are the contractors that built the NT passenger terminal for the adelaide to darwin trainservice... dont know anything else about them

Darwin should become a metropolis of the north! Keep it coming. I see over a million easily sustained in this city.

Wow so this is really serious - they've got a website and a sales office

Views from "a crane" equivalent to level 23. So there's already a crane on site? - its not approved yet is it.





Looks alright - a worthy design for northern Australia's tallest i reckon. Love the name too - very clever. And 99m sounds better for 33s - allows for 3m floor to floor. Looks as if the podium is 5 storeys.

Just found the other thread in main forum. oh well.

Malt - Townsville won't tale the title back for a long time IMO. Certainly nothing above 23 storeys planned at the moment.

So Cul is there any laws as to what minimum floor height must be. In the Darwin projects thread

I would presume there to be an LMR of at least 2-3 metres, so a structure like this would probably be just over 100m. Any significant roof feature or a couple of levels of office/retail space at the base (BCA minimum office floor-to-floor is 4m) could push it higher quite easily.
But I've seen exceptions in various developments

years ago, the min height for floor to ceiling was 2.4m or 2.6m floor to floor. these days min is 2.7m floor to ceiling or 2.85m floor to floor.

Her's another render off the site.


Apparantly the building had been wind tunnel tested and engineered to the highest Australian design standards, inclusive of cyclonic and earthquake conditions
