site planning framework
are these new plans? 4 buildings to 1?
Plans say Tower 1 (I'm presuming of 4).
The building on top of the showroom in the first renders appears to be suspended on two poles about a meter wide, so would welcome some more info about the true treatment. The actual showroom space seems to be retained so it looks a bit better than the de rigeur facadism. I think I prefered the first renders though.
Heritage Vic issued a permit in Aug last year for tower 1, on the Toyota Building, the plans being the curved shny corner design - so thats the one that will be built ? or the pointy one or the one with vertical blades ?? and no maketing or anything yet ....
Oh what a feeling, again: Toyota flips Melbourne development site
Toyota Australia has quietly sold its inner-city Melbourne dealership site, with plans for a 1000-apartment project, to busy private developer PDG Corporation.
The off-market deal was struck recently and a purchaser's caveat placed this month, according to property records, as Toyota pushes ahead with an ambitious plan to transform the prominent Elizabeth Street site into a major development.
While that plan is yet to to receive final approval from the state government, it has passed a key hurdle, winning endorsement from the city council this month.
While the massive project moves through the planning system, Toyota has already secured its exit, striking a deal with PDG, led by Vince Giuliano.
Toyota plans to move from its long-standing Elizabeth Street dealership, just outside the CBD, to the Harbour Town section of Docklands – a precinct controlled by Sydney's AsheMorgan – where a new 15,000 square metre showroom will be developed. Lexus is also understood to be part of the move, industry sources said.
