As posted by upwards in the Parramatta thread a month ago:
Another high rise apartment building proposed for Parra
This planning proposal is to be discussed at the next council meeting..
I got the info from council business papers on website.
5-7 Charles st AND 116 Macquarie st
To be known as Charles Street Parramatta
The council support rezoning the land from commercial to mixed use.
Instead of a design competition the proponent wants to bypass a design competition and have nominated Stanisic Architects to do the design.
This is possible apparently if agreed by the council and DPI.
Instead of a competition a Design Integrity Panel (DIP) would be used to review the design.
The plannning proposal wants to achieve max height of 120m
approx 260-290 apartments.
Looks like about 38 levels from the renders
