Proponents of the Mandarin Centre have lodged a new planning proposal for the site. The new proposal seeks to:
- add shop top housing as an additional permitted use in Schedule 1 while retaining the Commercial Core B3 zoning for the site.
- Increase the maximum height limit from 27m to 125.6 metres (RL 217.6).
- Increase the permissible Floor Space Ratio from 2.5:1 to 11.37:1 (excluding affordable housing)
Council rejected the previous application to redevelop this site.
In relation to this latest application, Council Officers are recommending that it not be supported by Council..
