A taller order for Hanover

A taller order for Hanover Image

The owner of Hanover House on the corner of City Rd and Power St in Southbank is seeking to add another 24-levels to an already approved 43-level building.

Having already received approval for a 151-metre tower in 2010, Eastern International Property Group has requested to amend its permit and increase its building’s height to 218 metres and 67-storeys.

The matter went before City of Melbourne councillors at its Future Melbourne Committee meeting on March 7 shortly after Southbank Local News published its March edition.

Council’s planning officers advised councillors not to support the proposal in its recommendation, with Minister for Planning Richard Wynne to have the final say on the amended plans.

Planning officers noted a number of concerns in their report regarding inadequate setbacks, wind impacts and poor internal amenity. It also stated that by virtue of its height, the building would dominate the desired urban form for Power St and represented an overdevelopment of the site.

If approved, the new building would comprise 556 dwellings, 96 serviced apartments, office and retail spaces and a supermarket.
