According to the planners at Planning Insights, “This immediate area has undergone this change and is continuing a transitionary phase towards medium density residential living (5 storey building height). Consequently, the immediate residential landscape is likely to change and have a built form more reflective of the medium to high density multiple dwellings already established or approved in Swann Rd. The development does provide an appropriate built form whilst meeting associated other utility requirements set down by the planning scheme. On this basis the overall building presents as an appropriate bulk/scale as indicated in the design concepts put forward (as required by the City Plan).”
