Following the introduction of interim height controls by the Minister for Planning Richard Wynne, the proposal for this site has been revised and a permit issued. Instead of one tower at 236m, it is now two towers of 47 and 49 levels as shown here.

The height of the original tower proposal had been strongly opposed by Yarra’s Edge residents.

The towers will enjoy a range of community facilities.

Little Projects will build a 2100sq m park at the site and set aside land for a potential future tram corridor.

On Tuesday 7 October, the City of Melbourne’s Future Melbourne Committee unanimously and enthusiastically supported an application referred by the Minister for Planning for 85 – 93 Lorimer Street. The site is in the Lorimer Precinct of the Fishermans Bend Urban Renewal Area where there are no height controls. The building height is 236.6 m.

The councillors were fulsome in their praise for the application for responding to the requirements of the Fishermans Bend Strategic Framework plan. A 2,300 sq m park is created by developer contribution.  An elevated reservation is provided for a future tram link as well as a shared pedestrian/bike path. The orientation of the site means that shadows are cast largely over the West Gate freeway and streets to the south. No apartments rely on borrowed light.

The Councillors were in no doubt that this development sets a precedent – in their view, a desirable one. As the referral authority, the Council had achieved all it sought from this development.Cr Mayne congratulated Paul Little for ‘blazing a trail in this gateway site’ by working with the Council within the guidelines of the Fishermans Bend Strategic Framework Plan and setting an example to future developers.

Are you as delighted? This application will set the pace for this precinct.
