Approval granted for a mixed use tower in Bondi Junction

Development Application has been approved for a 19-storey mixed use tower in Bondi Junction that combines striking design elements with environmental initiatives. The sculpted design is a response to maximising panoramic harbour views for the occupants and their neighbours.
The building is modulated by a scalloping of the façade. On the southern side, it splits into two slender parallel forms. Apart from enabling natural light and ventilation into the corridor, this articulates the tower on the narrow lane frontage. For more, click here
