well i'm glad it at least made 18 storeys for that area. no special place to protect around there other than the grand culture of the central station precinct.

ive only found a section of this tower.(Hokin Design are architects) -Developers-Eastview.
i knew it had only 1 basement but forgot about the car stacker which goes down 16m below grd. this will take a while to dig.
Also its a mixed use tower, having first few floors as office use.

yeah, but it would stand out even better if combined with that grey number and the slither in between and allowed to go as high as those on the other side of the rail line. you would think that area would be prime for the standard 150m jobs we get considering that it's already overshadowed by the higher buildings up the hill like amex. i don't see any parks or special open space to the bottom left to the bottom right of that model, ie, where winter shadowing would fall. maybe we do need to protect sun access to the rail line though?

I guess the just want a gradual reduction in height, Lance. There are terraces just off to the bottom left of the picture and every dog's favourite, Harmony Park, just off to the bottom right.

the original DA rose abruptly from cnr heritage bldg. it was knocked back.
now it has setbacks and step ins near top . so it repects the wentworth house.
it has a 55m height limit, not 150m. it only has small amount of FSR.

Off topic I know, but what the f**k is ever going to happen to that dodgy car park just to the west of this site over the train line. Every few months more boarding/hoarding goes up around it to keep the thing standing. It's such a bloody eyesore.

Yes me too. I thought there were plans to renovate it? Thinking of car parks too, I am happy there is a DA in to upgrade the Domain car park ... hoorah!

I just walked past the site on my lunchtime stroll and took a few shots. It's still a very active excavation site but it's almost impossible to get a good shot through the hoardings, mess and plastic sheeting...
