it wont be getting approval due to being in a 5storey height zone,lol

It's amazing how many dwellings are down in that valley. Sydney is just full of these hidden surprises.

I was looking at the web site of Smart Design Studio and came across these pictures of 'Walker Street Apartmments'; does anyone know anything about the building? I thought it may have been the DA zulu69 posted, but it's a different architect and, I think, further up Walker Street. I really dig it.

It's recent - part of Beau Monde appears in the skyline render

It's different to Zulu's drawings but looks just as good. Good setbacks on the upper floors & I love overhang.

I found out today at the North Sydney Council Offices that it is separate to Zulu's tower.

The tower that zulu posted was for 136-140 Walker St, whilst papervaginas is for the site next door, 144-150 Walker Street.

I've seen models of both towers plus for a couple of others (including the 30 storey hotel proposal for Mount St) which I'll post later

The model photos as promised

16-40 Mount St - This tower combined with 100 Pacific Highway will ensure the formation of a wall of skyscrapers along the Pacific Highway





136-140 Walker St (Zulu's tower)





144-150 Walker St (papervaginas tower)

You'lll notice some building envelopes here as well suggesting that there is even more development on the cards for this part of North Sydney

Wow - I'm working at 12 Mount St tomorrow (was there today too), I'll take a pic of the site.

The lower part of this building is current car park and the taller part will replace what's currently a very scruffy (or even vacant) Telephone exchange.

Part of which was built in 1930... Where will the Telephone Exchange be relocated? The site is also quite tall for what is a very low area of NS... It's behind the Great Wall of Miller St.

BTW I go past this site every day on my way to Starbucks after telling a dimwit member of staff how to attach a file in Outlook Web Access.... For the 50th TIME! Needed to vent...

Yeah, but I know the people who work there and no other store makes a mean Venti Doubble Choc Cream Based Frappachino with Whipped Cream on top.
