Isnt the render abit farfetched for that site? That site isnt very big.. and A building between the inbound and outbound highway? seriously? and... I hope they will build parking lots under the existing [email protected] highway to save space

.PDF's and my PC aren't agreeing at the moment unfortunately.

Is that render above indicative of the final concept at all? I'm noticing very different building layouts and heights in the various renders and sketches that have been posted.

That looks like a bulking map, the rezoning submission proposes 7 different dvelopment blocks with the blocks on the North and South ends of the site having more height than the central blocks. There is some flexibility in the building envelopes for each block and this is obviously for flexibility based on user requirements so different concepts based on the same rezoning apllication could show quite different buildings. Highest permissable as per the application would be 90m on the block on the North East with the block on South up to 58m

great so tallest is around 22-28F depending on use
good to have a CBD book end on this side of the city to compliment what portside will hopefully do on the other

If they apply for an increase in bulk or height I can't see the city turning them down.

The site is currently zoned RR (railway) and I think there is a consent use for the current 'retail' application and the rezoning is for a commercial zoning which would be for sub zone 5 or 6 which has a site specific bulk ratio and height restriction rather than a pre-determined bulk ratio and height restriction. Word is that the city is generally becoming more flexible with regards height lately.

I see Edge have a billboard up on site. Looks like they're selling space.

Has that been there for long?

It's a bit short, but design-wise I'm a fan.
