“The development proposes a 10-18 storey multiple dwelling outcome, which will diversify the housing product within West End, together with creating a very liveable and sub-tropical outcome for residents. The proposed building height is in keeping with the existing, emerging and anticipated building height outcomes for the immediate area,” planners at Mewing Planning Consultants said.
