Well bowl me over with a fishfork, they've kept the unprotected heritage building. Not the world's most sympathetic treatment, but bugger me it's there.

So is this 2.4m or 1.6m for the ground level?

Shouldn't it be 226.2-1.6 so 225m rounded up.

Central Equity actually have quite a good record for retaining heritage buildings in their developments.

Interesting that it was presumably submitted before the recent tower rules, but complies with them, at least to the extent that the minimum setbacks on all sides are 5m. I guess this has been an informal minimum for some time. Also interesting that it looks like it's been designed with the possibility of another tower to the west, with those apartments in the middle on the west side having views directed towards the street rather than relying on views over the adjacent site.

Just wondering as to what caused CE to deviate from their normal offering? Not that I'm complaining.

Even CE have to mix it up a bit guess.

The standard of applications in Southbank improved after the planning controls were reviewed and amended controls were introduced in June 2013. Generally nothing has recently been approved with setbacks of less than 5m from the boundaries or within 10m of another building.

Good on MCC.

CE is CE, crap is crap, at 200m+ this would have been a shocker.

383 LaTrobe Street getting MCC approval is huge.

Two good decisions by the MCC.

Good news, it would be better if they refused the entire development and sent them packing. CE are responsible for most of the warts in our city.
