Enjoy your trip O1!
Hopefully it'll be cooler for you.
We were there a couple of weeks back and it was an average of 40°c daily!
Enjoy all the cranes everywhere too!

From today’s Mercury. I think this may be their 25 storey hotel Fragrance were planning in 2017…





Fragrance Group submits five-star plans for Clarion Hotel
Singaporean hotel developer the Fragrance Group has submitted a development application for a five-star hotel at the Clarion Hotel site, but full details were yet to be made publicly available.

The City of Launceston confirmed the initial documents had been submitted and were under assessment before the plans could be publicly advertised, but it is believed it features nearly 300 rooms of five-star standard with conference space.

The council has sought more information from Fragrance Group as part of the development application process.
The Examiner understands the plans for the Clarion are reduced in height from the original 25-storey, 70-metre plans that Fragrance was pursuing in 2016.

Those plans did not reach the development application stage.

The council's new building heights policy assesses designs under a "performance criteria" if they are greater than 24 metres.

City of Launceston general manager Michael Stretton said the matter would go through the usual processes before being publicly advertised.

"The City of Launceston has received a development application for this site," he said.

"As with other planning applications, once all necessary information has been supplied by the applicant, the development application will be publicly advertised."
In January, the City of Hobart rejected Fragrance Group's 55-metre hotel development on Collins Street in the Hobart CBD after receiving almost 1500 submissions. The plans had earlier been altered to reduce its height.
Fragrance submitted plans for another hotel on Macquarie Street in June, along with other highrise residential projects.

The City of Launceston is currently defending its decision to approve JAC Group's 39-metre Gorge Hotel proposal on Margaret Street in the Resources, Management and Planning Appeal Tribunal.

The appeal was brought by neighbouring business owner Susie Cai.

The group Launceston Heritage Not Highrise was also formed to oppose the Gorge Hotel proposal, and other highrise hotel developments planned for the city.
Fragrance Group has been contacted for comment.
Chamber of Commerce: Plans a 'vote of confidence' in Launceston

Launceston Chamber of Commerce executive officer Neil Grose said it was pleasing to hear that Fragrance Group has reached the development application stage for the Clarion Hotel.

He said industry research showed Launceston had a need for greater five-star hotel room capacity.
"This is a fantastic vote of confidence in Launceston's future as a centre for the high end visitor economy as well as a premium destination for high value-add business events such as conferences and high-spending incentive meetings," Mr Grose said.

"Fragrance have been working for some time on refining their proposal in Launceston and it is excellent news that this is now in the development application process.
"A hotel of this scale and quality will spread significant economic benefits throughout the region, generating hundreds of jobs and many business opportunities for local entrepreneurs in the tourism and hospitality industries."

Interesting. Still—I know this is SSC, but I don’t want to see that lovely building reduced to a facade tacked on to a concrete tower. Everything has its place—including tall buildings...

These kinds of inner suburban projects are often the ones most fiercely resisted by NIMBY residents as well—a nearby proposal for all of five apartments on a big
empty block has been tied up by council and by appeals for years (literally), due to the influence of nightmarish local residents.
Recommended for refusal—too dense, apparently. Looks like it attracted a lot of detailed NIMBY representors, and HCC pandered to them again. Who could believe we’re in the middle of a crisis of housing supply...

"Too dense"

Is surrounded by larger and higher buildings...

Quiet on here.

Some fragments I’ve picked up on:

$7m application for 28 apartments at 9 Sandy Bay Rd lodged earlier this week. Some may recall this as the site of the refused (and appealed and refused) Tribe Hotel. RIP. I’m not actually that hot on this, as the site is already a little apartment block, and one which is known to be let affordably to students. I’ve met a few people over the years who lived here, and I’m not convinced that redevelopment of existing medium density housing for something new and more expensive would be of great benefit to Hobart.

Today’s City Deal update is pretty light on, but does promise an additional $10m social and mixed tenure housing development in the CBD, for construction in 2021. ‘Creative spaces’ at street level. Sounds nice. If I had to guess, this might be what’s in the pipeline for the Waratah hotel carpark.

Core Collective Architects (they of the Commons and the Rox—what’s holding up the Rox??) are advertising for partners and buyers to join a central Hobart ‘co-development’ scheme of 12 townhouses.

It looks like the redevelopment plans for Hobart Airport have survived the airport changing hands this week, per the AFR. Good news. Let’s hope the mooted direct flights to Auckland and Singapore actually materialise.

And a new proposal has emerged for apartments and townhouses out in Claremont, on the old school site, which only just changed hands again. Circa Morris Nunn are involved. Let’s see if their recent kiss-of-death track record on projects changes this time.

Big reveal of Launnie’s own Fragrance hotel on the Examiner, but I can’t for the life of me get through the paywall. Anyone else have more luck?

Gotta say, maybe Fragrance are learning, because that proposal looks pretty good. Better than any of Hobart’s so far (the buildable ones, that is).

Edit: Via Leon Compton on FB. An impressive 289 rooms.
