wow, 23 levels sounds good, probably 23x3m=69m so might still be lower than 76m cone atop Holiday Inn, but sounds promising.Oriolus said:The Townsville Bulletin yesterday reported that an apllication is before council for a apartment tower that may be up to 23 storeys high. The developer, Gordon Property Developments said that he favoured a tall thin tower over a short fat one & also that he wanted to go higher than 12 storeys, possible "22 or 23 levels".
The site at the corner of Denham and Wills St is currently occupied by YMCA and the North Queensland Club and facilities for these groups will be retained in GPD plans.
If approved and built to 23 storeys this may become the tallest (Holiday Inn is only 20 storeys but has a cone on top) in Townsville and consequently the tallest in Northern Australia. The site itself is several metres above most of the CBD so in any case this will be a new landmark on the Townsville skyline.
