Pikos Group has submitted a revised development application for a three-stage residential development located at 94-108 Lambert Street and 46 O’Connell Street, Kangaroo Point.

The development comprises of three towers, each at 10 storeys high (plus penthouse level). A total of 200 residential apartments is planned for the project, with each tower featuring rooftop recreation amenities.

Designed by Kowalski Architects, the riverfront development will require the removal of three non-heritage pre-1911 dwellings which are to be relocated off-site.

According to Mewing Planning Consultants, the proposed development “responds to and addresses the site’s contextual characteristics, together with the relevant design, planning and technical provisions of the planning framework, to create a development that will make a positive contribution to the continued growth of the Kangaroo Point area”.

    • Any why aren’t they doing their bit by extending the Riverwalk that is currently in a stranded state? That piece of their land would connect two vital segments of riverwalk that currently cannot be utilised.

    • There is very little street parking for visitors and people not using their parking can sell the space, but most households have 2-3 cars. Not everyone can ride a bike.

  1. This is high-density development gone crazy. How can the Council approve such a huge development on such a small footprint which is going to have such a significant environmental impact on the neighbouring buildings and apartments? 200 unit apartments and 326 car parks will cause excessive noise pollution, overcrowding of unaesthetic concrete monoliths and the devaluation of the value and attraction of Kangaroo Point and surrounding areas. I think that as many people as possible who live in this currently pristine area should rise up and protest against what is obviously developer greed and disregard for current inhabitants and their dwellings.

    The development is too large for the proposed area. Two towers would be more appropriate.
    An absolute requirement should be the completion of the river walkway from Castlebar at the front across the full extent of the property. No comment in the development plan mentions this.
    There completion of this river walkway connection is crucial to a safer environment for walking and cycling, instead of navigating through a congested Lambert St, Thorn St.
