|– The building will target a 5 star Green Star rating
– Rainwater harvesting
– Solar PV panel system planned on the roof for communal power consumption
– An allowance has been provided for EV charging capacity to car parking
– There is no recycling chute or dual waste diverter, meaning residents would need to manually take recycling down to the refuse room. This doesn’t encourage building recycling and a recycling chute diverter or secondary chute is needed for this project.
|PC1, Principal Centre (City Centre) zone
The ground floor of the building features a 132m2 retail tenancy and a 122m2 lobby for the residents. The lobby would feature seating and a communal bookshelf / library offering passive recreation and meeting opportunities for residents and their visitors.
Access to the site’s car parking is located on Edmondstone Street at the north-western corner of the site. According to the planning team, this location is the most appropriate access location as it is from the lowest order road, furthest from the intersection and located at the highest potential elevation to assist with flood risk management.
The development is 20-stories below the allowable 50-storey height limit for this site as it is within the Melbourne Street PC1, Principal Centre (City Centre) zone.
