The proposed development is a mixed-used building, comprising 49 apartments and three levels of hospitality and office tenancies.
Considerable in size and bound by roads on three edges, the site presents a unique opportunity for multiple distinct street frontages.
The building is sympathetic to its location and heritage facade through use of masonry at the lower levels. This finish adds a level of fine grain detail and is considerate of the neighbourhood vernacular, particularly the warehouses evident along Black Street.
The development makes a thoughtful contribution to the residential and commercial landscapes existing along Barkly and Black Streets. The design is a highly considered, contemporary interpretation of the medium density housing model and suggests an appropriate form of sensitive densification.
