Support for tower

30 Oct 2014

Support for tower Image

City of Melbourne has given its conditional support to a 92-metre high residential building proposed for construction at the corner of Harbour Esplanade and LaTrobe St.

The Future Melbourne Committee last month agreed to send a letter to the state planning department confirming its support for the building, on the condition that further setbacks were added to the building.

The Salta development would be 92.2 metres tall at its highest point and comprise 383 residential apartments, 2213sqm of office space and 670sqm of retail space.

An officer report presented at the October 7 Future Melbourne Committee Meeting stated that the 92 metre tall building with no setbacks for length of 27 metres and a 1.45 metre setback for 29 metres was “excessive”.

The report stated the lack of setback would “reduce the amenity of LaTrobe St through inadequate setbacks and visual bulk, particularly at a pedestrian scale”.

Support was given on the condition that “the 77 metre section building be setback a minimum of five metres from LaTrobe St”.
