The VCAT decision correctly states there is no height limit in the area at all. Below 100m you can build anything without a permit. Hence the plethora of crap. The revised podium and car park includes a vertical landscape incorporating fully grown trees 30+m from the ground.

Interesting post Av1. Do you have anymore details? There is a dedicated thread in the Victorian section with a lot more discussion.

Southbank high-rise gets OK from VCAT

THE way has been cleared for a 226-metre, $400 million Southbank tower by noted architects Fender Katsalidis after the City of Melbourne lost a legal battle with the state government.

The Victorian Civil and Administrative Tribunal (VCAT) has rejected an appeal by the city council against the government's decision in April to grant the tower a permit. The 72-storey building will be built on the corner of City Road and Southbank Boulevard.

The council had argued that the tower dramatically broke what it regarded as the 100-metre height limit in the current planning scheme - and in the council's proposed Southbank structure plan - for that part of Southbank.

However, VCAT found that the design overlay did not specify a maximum height or preferred maximum height. The approval of earlier planning amendment C122 had ''effectively made 100 metres the threshold for the consideration of height in this location''. The proposal achieved the design objectives of the policy, it said, and was an example of exemplary architecture.

The chairman of the council's Future Melbourne (Planning) Committee, Cr Peter Clarke, said the proposed development failed to meet the objectives and requirements of the Melbourne planning scheme.

"The appeal to VCAT was lodged because we believe the development is excessive in both height and bulk," Cr Clarke said. ''It has excessive building bulk, inadequate separation from other towers nearby and relative to future developments, and potential for adverse wind effects.''

Cr Clarke said the council generally supported the architectural quality of the proposal, but the height was more than double the discretionary height limit.

The building will include 532 apartments, six levels of office space, a fresh food market, cafe/restaurant, car and bicycle parking as well as several ground floor retail shops. At 226.4 metres, 70 Southbank Boulevard is a little shorter than its neighbour Eureka Tower, which has 92 floors and is 300 metres high.

Two of the development partners are Benni Aroni, director of Stralliance Developments, and Nonda Katsalidis of Fender Katsalidis Architects, both of whom worked on the award-winning Eureka Tower. The third partner is Adrian Valmorbida Group.

Mr Aroni said Southbank needed a quality fresh food market. One innovative design feature was a vertical garden of living foliage, designed by Steve Calhoun of Tract, that would be installed over the car-parking levels, he said. VCAT said the design element provided a welcome green space in Southbank.

VCAT's decision casts a shadow over Melbourne City Council's structure plan for Southbank - developed because the council fears growth patterns threaten to turn the precinct into a skyscraper jungle like Hong Kong.

The structure plan divides the precinct into seven sections with different height maximums, ranging from 160 metres directly on the south bank of the Yarra, to 100, 60, 40 and 24 metres. However, the state government can overrule the plan through its power to approve buildings of more than 25,000 square metres.

The council envisages a range of zoning changes to give planning flexibility to enable the establishment of shops, services and entertainment, and more ''street life''. It will meet later this month to finalise the structure plan.
Thanks to Kichigai.
