A spokesperson from Renaker said about the new site:

“The 71-storey, primarily residential scheme comprises one tower, set out on a two-level podium.

“The building design incorporates 642 apartments with a mix of one (203 units, totalling 32%), two (402 units, 62%) and three (37 units, 6%) bed units and a range of internal and external amenity spaces, including a sky pool, yoga studio, lounge, co-working spaces and a gym.

“A publicly accessible restaurant will be provided on the top floor of the tower, accessed via a dedicated ground floor lobby and bank of lifts.

“214 car parking spaces and 642 cycle parking spaces for the residents are incorporated over 3 basement levels.

“A large ground floor level secure cycle parking store is provided, with overflow stores in the basement. Access to the Basement is from a secure vehicle and cyclist entry point, which will be provided via the internal access road off Melbourne Street and Great Jackson Street.

“In addition, an Estate Office is proposed that demonstrates Renaker’s commitment to the ongoing management of the estate.”
