Building approval anticipated

30 Apr 2013

Building approval anticipated Image

Planning Minister Matthew Guy is expected to soon approve two more of the buildings featured in MAB’s NewQuay Central masterplan.

The masterplan was originally unveiled in 2011 under the working title NewQuay Central, but is now being marketed as NewQuay Promenade.

The development involves four residential towers and a fifth building, which may be used as a hotel or residential tower, to be built on what is currently the NewQuay Piazza.

The development plans were met with public protest in 2011, with locals arguing that the buildings would cause overshadowing and would eat up public space.

A spokesperson for MAB said approval of the 18-storey silver tower and 22-storey bronze tower, to be built on the eastern side of the piazza, was expected in the near future.

This will follow Minister Guy’s approval in January of a 43-storey tower and a 16-storey tower, to be built on the western side of the piazza.

A fifth building, to be built at the front of the piazza, and to be used for a residential tower or a hotel, is yet to receive approval.
