HOBART -#PROPOSED - 62 Patrick Street -7st/25 metres Apartments

May as well kick off a new thread for this one as I reckon it stands a good chance of approval.

And finally the Mercury story for context...pleased to note that Harry O has appparently already spoken to a local building contractor with a possible start date of 2021. My guess is Fairbrother.

Hopefully, if it gets approved quickly, we might see some marketing activity by the middle of this year.

Quote:
AN INTERSTATE developer has proposed a $26 million apartment complex for a central Hobart site that is currently home to a car park and service centre.

Local architecture firm HBV Architects has lodged a development application on behalf of Melbourne-based property developers 6 Failla Avenue Pty Ltd with the Hobart City Council. The proposed complex is to be known as the Patrick St Apartments.

The 2100 sqm site is located between RACT House and Harvey Norman, fronting Murray and Patrick streets.

The proposed new building would feature 68 apartments with a rooftop garden plus 126 basement car parking spaces and commercial tenancies.

The proposal would see the demolition of the RACT roadside service centre buildings and will be a mix of one, two, three and four-bedroom affordable apartments.

Developer Harry Ozdemir told the Mercury a local building contractor had estimated the project value at $26 million.

Mr Ozdemir said pending council approval, construction was expected to begin early next year.

He said the project would help to alleviate the state’s housing crisis as well as create more “much-needed car parking for the area”.

The building would be approximately 25m at its highest, but had been designed to step down in height on the Patrick St frontage.

A report by Hobart planner Frazer Read said the development would provide “an overwhelmingly positive contribution to the city”.

“The proposal is a well-considered, high-quality development that will further strategic objectives for urban consolidation without conflict with heritage characteristics,” Mr Read wrote.

“The building is of an appropriate scale and assists the increase of density in the city without excessive height or impact on surrounding properties.”

Thanks O1.

The commencement rate on these resi projects has been so bad in recent years that I refuse to get too interested in this one until I see the hole in the ground with my own eyes.

Been absolutely no chatter on the boards or in the news about this project which in the current climate is a good sign.

Given the idiot Lord Mayors recent comments about the need for 5-6 storey apartment blocks in ths neck of the woods, she is clearly not going to vote against this one...representation period expires on Wednesday.

Yes, surely is a good sign. I would say this is a good chance of being approved.

Reminds me—anyone know the fate of the Ingomar apartments on Patrick St? Also in this neck of the woods, and survived a planning appeal post-approval. Seems to have vanished.

No intel from me on Ingomar - developer probably could not get a builder to do it for the budget or finance proved too difficult. Thats the usual issue stopping approved projects from going forward. It might pop up one day again soon.

And I agree that Patrick Street has a very good chance of approval - it will be a litmus test for the Idiot-In-Chief Reynolds and her very public call to arms for inner city 5-6 storey apartment projects. She really cant vote no to have any shred of her reputation left even if the Planning Staff are not in favour of the project. She has effectviely nailed her reputation to the mast head on this one.

Looking forward to the new proposal for Melville Street/Bathurst Street being advertised soon too. That can't be far away and promises to be on a larger scale that this project.
