i tend to agree. for past 20 years the tallest has been 16st/56m Marrakai tower. only now theres going to be Evolution which will double height of tallest to 100m tall. But this Gateway complex doubles Evolutions height!
yeah maybe in 10-20 years council may up height limit to 150m+.

The nearly complete Lamaroo on the Esplanade - there are only a couple more blocks available for development on this strip, they will all easily have the best views in Darwin.

yeah Cul, that core on the far right is Outrigger. Great Skyline Pics too, the skyline is really starting to thicken up, and looks really impressive driving in from Palmerston on Tiger Brennan Drive.

And another one's been approved! This one consists of a 25 story and 5 story building. I've lost count of how many 20 plus story developments are on the go in Darwin now.

There has been an artist's impressing put on the NT government's website, but my computer has decided it doesn't want to play, so I'll post the link when I can. In the meantime, you can read all about it below.

GREEN LIGHT FOR
THE CHINATOWN
DEVELOPMENT


THE DEVELOPMENT CONSENT AUTHORITY has approved the mixed use Chinatown development that will include 153 apartments, 155 hotel rooms, 350 car parks, restaurants and retail outlets in the Darwin CBD. Work will now start on detailed design, with the project expected to be well under way by the end of the year, says Sydney developer Robert Magid. “We were all delighted with the DCA’s approval, which was a vote of confidence in the project. We now look forward to laying the foundation stone,” he said.

The complex will include public facilities, including a large forecourt that encourages musical performances, restaurants, a pub and number of retail outlets. The Chinatown consortium is a collaboration between Jason Lee and Dennis On, of Leeon Properties, Mr Magid.

It will be the first mixed use CBD development for Darwin, incorporating a luxury hotel, restaurants, a hawker centre, offices, speciality retail outlets, tourism facilities and residential apartments.

This is the development that i reported on in October last year. It's located at the corner of Mitchell Street and Mott Court.

It's developer, Jason Lee, is a Singaporean businessman, who is based in Darwin.

Also, the property developer whom built the twin eight story Salonika towers in Parap, is now building a 15 story office tower on the land he owns next door to his apartment complex.

This office tower is the first of three he plans to develop. His plan is for Salonika Street to become Darwin's Coronation Drive.

It will be completed by 2008.


Another nine story apartment tower is to be built behind the historic Admiralty House on the Esplanade. 9 stories on the Esplanade seems to be the absolute norm, with 130 Esplanade being the exception.

Also, the NT News quoted the Panadaus Tower at 28 stories not 26, several times. Has it gone up by two levels.

Darwin does have a history of 'building' basically everything thats gets proposed. I was interested to read in the NT News the other week, that the 55 story Citygate Tower proposal is still being taken seriously.

all sounds good. but if im going to add these to emporis, i need details like- adress, plans,devlopers/architects etc.
25 st mixed use would be nearly as tall as Evolution.

Funny you should ask! The NT Business Review just listed all new CBD residential developments approved since June 2006, which includes:
  • 8 story block 184 Smith Street
    17 story block 96 Woods Street
    10 story block 105 Woods Street
    12 story block 115 Woods street
    8 story block 13 Dashwood Road
    25 and 6 story 68 Mitchell Street (Chinatown)
    2 x 9 story blocks, cnr Mauna Loa and Mitchell Streets
    24 story block 64 McMinn Street
    9 story block 70 Esplanade
    10 story block 108 Esplanade

There are also a few commercial developments, but these are relatively insignificant compared to the residential ones.

And for those interested in projects approved before June last year, here's an artists impression of the twin 30 story towers to be built on Harvey Street. Still no indication about when construction is going to begin though. They look kinda strange to me.

I talked about these two twin towers back in October as well.

They're to be built on the Stuart Park side of Harvey Street. Right on top of where the Darwin Gas storage tanks used to be.

As far as i know, they will offer 360 degree views as a selling point.
I think the architectual firm is Brisbane based.

I actually thought that the Darwin city council had rejected them on grounds of design. Not sure now.

Funny how the NT News refers to these as Sunset Towers, and still refers to 130 Eslanade as Ascension.

More good news for Darwin. As i said in a previous post. Darwin, with all it's marinas, canal estates and pink and purple highrises is getting a very Gold Coast feel to it.

Being lead by exQueenslanders sure is having an effect.

thanks for posting the pic!

They look crap. As Darwin is just entering the high-rise stage architects and developers should be placing a high priority on design to ensure that future high-rise in darwin is accepted.

I like them (except cascades) Love that tacky, Gold Coast feel to it. I still remember central Darwin looking like any old crappy outback town. I have a picture of the NT Government assembly building in the 70's. It looked like a tin shed. Tragic.

i suppose curtain walling is out of the question in most cases here but i do think more should be done to avoide ending up with white concrete fridges.
