Council recommending refusal. Couple of changes to the podium and setbacks.

Big thumbs up from me, though i am a little concerned about the northern facade as a large part of that wall will be concrete, but if it's painted black to suit the glass and other exteriors it should be ok.

Approved with "significant" height reduction according to Skyrise over at SSC (as well as the delegate's report).

Reduced by how much?

Not sure but this was quoted in the report:

"Although the informally amended plans improve elements of the development
including adopting a more distinctive podium/tower form, a reduction in the podium
height and minor increases to tower setbacks, it is considered that the changes do
not go far enough to warrant support. A significant reduction in building height,
increased tower setbacks, improved ground level and podium activation to
Gallaghers Place and improved urban design quality to the through block link are
required in order for the development to considered an acceptable outcome for this
site."

Seriously....how f#$%@ing annoying.
Why on earth would a 188m tower on this site require a "significant reduction in building height"???????

The permit issued by the Minister did not require the height of the tower to be reduced.

Brunswick East's popularity continues to cut through with apartment buyers, as Jameson Capital has noted with the recent launch of B.E. Apartments. Acting as a capital partner to date, Jameson Capital has turned its hand to development with 11-15 Brunswick Road, a 1,724sqm site that is located in an already established apartment pocket.

No doubt about it, the emerging build-to-rent model has the property media in a tizz at the moment. What may in part become a solution to the housing and rental affordability dilemma has garnered immense media attention of late.

The former site of John Batman's home, Batman's Hill is entering the final stages of its redevelopment. Collins Square's final tower has begun its skyward ascent, as has Lendlease's Melbourne Quarter Commercial and Residential precinct already. Melbourne Quarter's first stage is at construction and involves a new 12-storey home for consultancy firm Arup along with a skypark.

Andréanne Doyon , RMIT University ; Joe Hurley , RMIT University ; Susie Moloney , RMIT University , and Trivess Moore , RMIT University Australia’s building and land-use policy settings fall well short of what’s needed to make meaningful progress toward creating sustainable cities. You will find environmental sustainability goals and objectives in government strategy documents.

The recent BDAV Building Design Awards once more showcased the talents and expertise of Victoria's building designers. 2017 was the 22nd year of the BDAV Design Awards, which aims to "profile excellence in building design, as well as profiling the importance of the building design profession to both the building industry and to the broader community." One project that ticked the boxes was Green Edge.
