Too short. Sorry to poo-poo it so quickly. Should be say 180m - up to the underside of Centrepoint’s gondola. Or whatever it’s called. This wouldn’t overshadow Town Hall Square at 180m?

@Cul that's why I said 180m - the equivalent of the underside of the Centrepoint viewing/eating "pod" on top of the stick.

Doesn't that last green one go? There is another DA for that site which forms part of the larger development?

I thought the same. While they are separate DAs they were lodged on the same day.

It would be seem to be sensible to combine the two sites but not our decision.

The green circled one is part of the State theatre and was renovated only recently. It may well be included in the theatres heritage listing.

EVENT -458-472 George Street
aug22 afr

EVENT has lodged a development application this month for a $251 million tower next to its existing QT Sydney hotel.

A mixed-use building of up to 30 storeys at 458-472 George Street that would include an additional 72 hotel rooms, ground-floor retail and a commercial office tower.

EVENT acquired the site for $116 million in April 2017.

According to documents lodged with City of Sydney, the project has an estimated cost of $251 million.

It follows EVENT lodging a DA in July for a mixed-use tower of up to 43 storeys that would replace its cinema complex at 525 George Street at a cost of $222 million.

EVENT said this proposed tower (525 george) would incorporate a new 450-room Atura Hotel as well as a seven-screen cinema complex and 72 apartments.

Both projects are expected to be completed within the next five to seven years, as it looks to grow the value of $2 billion property portfolio.

Operationally, EVENT's cinema profits fell in Australia, but profits across its 62-hotel portfolio increased marginally.

Unusual! The 'Ballerina Windows' are pretty eye-catching and create a very busy façade!

First impression: pity he didn't relate the design a bit more to his existing building on the south side.
Maybe the owners wanted a more individualistic and stand-out design.

Also missing is the 31 storey tower that will rise up behind it which will alter the whole view and perspective of the building.
