Where did Clover Moore get this idea that Ciy of Sydney means the CBD? The CBD might not be able to take too many more residents, but there's plenty of room within the rest of the council's boundarys - remember Green Square, Clover?

Good old semantics let us down every time. When someone says things such as "Sydney", "the city", "central Sydney", "city centre", etc., it can be a bloody minefield. All these can refer to a range of ideas and places, and then context becomes a bit crucial! In Clover's favour, in this case, I think we have to assume she meant the CBD, as I know she is aware of Green Square as I have seen her in it. And she spoke positively of the Macquarie-City-Airport development arc, curve, sweep...

That's AMEX isn't it ? It's going to be a big 12 storey brick, but hopefully it will look nice like KPMG. Still a brick is a brick.......

And lets hope they end up utilising some of that height in EDH.
I have a feeling though that EDH will be 2x 160m towers and the rest of the buildings will be low rise.

That's good news, will do more for the immediate area, and Amex have chosen o remain in the cbd, rather than opting for a business park setting (don't know if that was ever an option). This part of Sydney is unrecognisable from 5 years ago, and I have faith that EDH will add to this in a positive way!

the buzz down this part of town was so evident yesterday when i checked out kens. Not only is Dupain and Pheonix dev Uc but now the new Amex tower willl start next to KPMG. theres also new energy oz substation (cnr sussex/erskine) and with Westpac about to open the precinct is b00ming. EDH will fit right in adjacent with some MLC size office towers and huge parkland areas. cant wait.

thanks for your continued 'positivity' Cul. I must admit that I do get a bit cynical and cheesed off sometimes but all in all Sydney does really kick butt

Also, www.propertyweb.com.au reports that a legal firm has just entered the market seeking "significant new PURPOSE BUILT office space in the CBD". My guess is that want a fair whack of space in the northern CBD ( where all the legal eagles are ) which could mean that those Bligh St proposals could be a goer !

I pray to God, Allah, Buddah and even Mab that you are correct!

Well, word is out that ANZ is looking for between 20,000 - 25,000 sqm of office space and will vacate its Martin Place building. The poor thing down on the corner (pic below) has become redundant, after 35 years. Not even a fancy podium makeover a few years ago could save this one. I do hope they don't pull it down though, as Sydney hardly has any of these international style slabs. It just needs a full renovation (and upgrading of wiring etc where necessary), internally & externally.

My only concern is that sometimes the financiers find it more economically viable to construct a newer building than spend squillions on a spruce up. Nothing to do with height CULWULLA.

I just read that Pheonix will no longer be a residential - multiplex has ditched the 13 storey apartment tower and is now planning to develop an office building on the partly done site.
apparently feel victim to slowing apartment sales in city - there were expressions of interest for just 20 of the apartments out of 194.

office tower is much better than residential in my view anyway so this is great news
