Let the new cycle begin...

The next project for the Brady Group is a 36 storey tower at 380-386 Little Lonsdale Street behind the former Royal Mint Site, across from the childrens court. The tower will have 244 apartments.

This will be a great denisty booster for the area as it will be only the second tower on the block, the first being Republic which is also 36 storeys high.

What sort of height are we looking at 100-110m? The fact Brady's behind it scares me somewhat but meh, it's all good.

Yeah because Brady's built that pus-bucket beige monstrosity on Flinders Street near Spencer.... and then they jam their buildings full of international students who dont look after them.

Hopefully they have got FK to design it like they did with the nearby Wills Tower which turned out pretty good.

I hope that site includes the old Childrens Court and the enclose car park, cos if it does, that's a big site for a big building :D

The site is right behind the cutoms building in the foreground of this pic:



Hopefully it won't be too many years before somebody builds a nice 200m+ tower on the former Royal Mint car park :)

Don't know. Maybe because a lot of influential lawyers live in Republic tower? :)

The VCAT appeal will be held on 19-23 February.

Brady Group

VS.

- The City of Melbourne
- The Mint Inc. (c/- Hansen Partnership)
- Victoria University (c/- GHD Pty Ltd)
& Joseph Galbally (on behalf of owners and occupiers of the Republic Tower)

It will be a big hearing with the residents of Repblic Tower having plenty of money and legal resources to throw at the case.

Brday Group are still planning to being construction before the end of the year ;-)

This application has been approved by VCAT!

The tower will be 112.8 meters high and 36 levels. The architects are Hayball Leonard Stent who were responsible for Mondriane but conditions of permit will require that there be no blank walls :)

Also the owners of the Royal Mint site didn't want this tower approved because of the impact it could have on their plans for a tower on that site :)

VCAT said that they don't have to worry because the development of this tower would still allow for a significant tower to be erected on the Royal Mint site :)

This one should be a nice little density booster right where it is needed.
