Great to see ‘affordable retail and commercial space for independants’ which was one of my concerns with the project that it would be the start of chains taking over the area.

Another substantial sized re-development for the JQ, can anyone put a finger on which views/streets picture 2 and 3 relate to?

Very good news. Love the renders. Really looking forward to seeing this get built.


We can now say that we've had the first big app of the year.

As someone who lives close to this site I have to say this looks very good. The improved access to Newhall Street is much appreciated.

So pleased with this development. Only the other day I was looking down Newhall Street thinking as you look down it doesn’t look very attractive, but this will entice people down and once down it looks a really quality development.

Not sure i like the introduction of a the north to south pedestrian road.This hasn't really resolved that well particularly to the south of the site. Other than that it seems ok.

This really looks top drawer, lots of little green spaces and "higgle de piggidy" streets. Didn't realise the site includes the Baker Finnemore building too. This building currently presents a boring dead end to Newhall Street when you look down from Great Charles Street. If I'm reading the plan correctly that dead end will have the grey tower and an entrance into the development.
I keep saying this about lots of developments, but this as the potential to create a real "destination within a destination"...can't wait for this!

I think this looks great! I really like the street layout. The only thing I’m not sure about is the grey tower lift shaft looking thing. That will be visible on most of Newhall Street. I like the idea of some sort of focal point here but the tower looks a bit to functional rather than decorative. They need to vajazal it a bit.

I love sites like this, evenly mixed-use rather than one use overly dominating, 320 apartments, 100,000 sqft of commercial space, attractive varied looking buildings, and all on just a 1.6 hectare site. A brilliant use of land and one of my new favourites in the city.
