Protracted negotiations with Manly Council were needed to gain approval for this difficult site. A central lobby and circulation core is accessed from the side lane. A key urban design component of the scheme is an undercover arcade at ground level, which offers the public wet weather access through the site and maximising exposure for the commercial tenancies.
The project required careful allocation of the floor space ratio allowance and consideration of the impact on adjoining properties. It includes basement parking, ground level commercial space and 8 residential units over 3 upper levels. The upper penthouse units have roof top garden access.
