I am the Planning Manager for the owners of the property that is opposite 809 Pacific Highway at 688-692 Pacific Highway.
We previously had a proposal for demolition of the existing buildings and seeking approval for an 11 storey apartment building.
We are now not proceeding with that proposal. We are now working on a different plan for a 6-7 storey building.
As part of understanding aspects of the new plan, we want to try to assess the effect of the new building on views from apartments in “Leura” especially those directly opposite our site.
To that end we are hoping that we might gain access to several units at and above level 12 on the southern end of the Leura Building where the views most directly overlook our building. Our aim is to take photos from the apartments/ balconies so that they can be included with our application to Council. That will help Council to better assess the proposal. I expect it would only take 5 minutes in an apartment and we could do it on a weekend or early morning if that was convenient for a resident.
I don’t have plans of “Leura” but I think the units a facing Pacific Highway on level 12, 13 and 14 at the southern end would be the ones to get the photos from.
We don’t need access to all of the units, perhaps 1 on each level if possible.
If you are able to contact the residents on our behalf for them to call me to arrange a suitable time that would be a great help. I can make arrangements directly with the residents or through you if you think that would be appropriate?
