CITY FACES TOWERING ISSUES
07.06.2005



By Susan Searle [email protected]

A $30 million, eight-storey commercial/residential development, opposite City Hall, faces almost certain approval by Toowoomba City Council today.

The plan is for shop and office space, 150-seat cafe and restaurant, 35 serviced four-star motel apartments, 28 multiple dwellings, manager’s unit and basement parking.

The complex has a swimming pool, spa, sauna and gymnasium as well as conference facilities.

Already 33 units have reportedly been sold off the Trilogy Apartments plan in the two weeks since its release.

The prospectus reveals prices started at $290,000 with a September 2006 envisaged completion date.

The vacant 2413sqm of land, and vacant commercial building, has a 30-metre frontage to Ruthven Street and 30-metre frontage on Annand Street, and is south of the Quality Burke and Wills Motel.

Council’s senior planning officer, Paula Newman, will air concerns that the proposal does not completely satisfy the city’s planning scheme codes, but conditions can be imposed to meet compliance.

Ms Newman recommends approval subject to streetscape appearance, accessibility to car parking spaces, solar access and private open space for multiple dwelling units.

Councillors will vote today.

Tower builder stays upbeat
08.06.2005


By Susan Searle [email protected]

A BRISBANE developer remains confident he can meet most councillors’ concerns and still secure approval for his two-tower, 10-storey development, Argyle on Kitchener.

Andrew St Baker, of ERM Projects Pty Ltd, toyed with reconfigurations en route back to Brisbane after yesterday’s Committee of Council meeting.

"There is no way we can deliver this level of quality and amenity (on a par with any capital city) on this signature site without the proposed apartment and height yield," he said.

Councillors’ concerns included height, given the town plan’s eight-storey preference for that area, as well as site cover and landscaping.

They heard architects’ impressions featuring mature trees could not be fulfilled since trees would not survive in the restricted on-street area.

An excited Planning Committee chair Michele Alroe was confident the issues could be resolved.

"This is the sort of development we want to see," she said.

Lyle Shelton, Graham Barron and Keith Beer agreed Toowoomba had "come of age as a city". Mr St Baker will seek a deferral of the proposed preliminary approval so modified plans reducing the site cover and increasing the landscaping at ground level can be prepared.

What are the height limits in Toowoomba? The above suggests they vary but what's the maximum. Anyone have a map?

All praise $13 million project
29.06.2005


EVEN the lone opponent to a $13 million development, which includes the restoration of the old Church Of Christ church, last night agreed it was a good outcome.
The F.K. Gardner & Sons plan has the church in the foreground and a nine-storey residential, commercial and retail develop- ment at the rear.

Cr Sue Englart had resisted plans to penetrate the eastern wall of the building to allow access to a planned restaurant.

Last night Toowoomba City Council unanimously supported the revised plans for the project which incorporated an extra 15 car parks.

Height still a sticking point in multi-storey units plan

19.07.2005


By Susan Searle [email protected] AN AMENDED plan for multi-storey unit development Argyle on Kitchener, to be considered by Toowoomba City Council today, will satisfy most concerns.
However, Brisbane developers ERM Projects will persist in seeking to exceed the eight-storey height stipulated.

An application for two 10storey towers, on two allotments on the corner of Kitchener and Phillip streets, was considered by council last month.

Concerns about the height, site cover and landscaping were raised and the project was withdrawn before to the ordinary council meeting.

The revised plans provide for one tower, once of nine storeys, to be of eight storeys with a mezzanine level; and the other tower, once of 10 storeys, to be of nine storeys plus a mezzanine and rooftop facilities.
The site cover is now 44% after initially being 72%.

Building setbacks along Kitchener and Phillip streets have been increased to allow for more landscaping.

The initial plan offered 29 three-and four-bedroom units. This has been reduced to 27 three-bedroom units.

Council officers today will tell councillors that apart from the proposed height of the two buildings, the amended proposal generally satisfies the requirements of the planning scheme.

"Approval is recommended subject to a condition that the height of the buildings is no greater than eight storeys," the officers’ report states.
