The site for this project had been subject to a previous DA that was refused by Council in October 2003. Marchese Partners were appointed to re-design the scheme and lodge a new DA. After a lengthy design development process the DA was approved in the relatively short time frame of 11 months. The entire development covers 10,557 m2 of floor space arranged over 6 buildings of varying height, with a landscaped podium for residents’ use. The complex brief, together with development controls, made it a real challenge to achieve the required floor space on the site, however Marchese Partners managed to accomplish both this and also create a strong urban design that contributes to the locality in a positive way.
