Burnie Court Lyons

By Pandy - 18 August 2007 1

The Canberra Times reports today that a deal has been signed with Hindmarsh for the redevelopment of the old Burnie Court site. The redevelopment will be staged to include an intial 125 “life-style” over 55’s units.

BUT not reported is that Hindmarsh is looking to build a 10 storey apartment block on the corner of Melrose/Launceston opposite the hotel to fund the development. Think the hotel and double the height.

What’s Your opinion?

Whatever they build would be prettier than the Sky Plaza abomination a kilometre away…

Even at 10 storeys, the residential development will be lower than the MLC Tower, Sky Plaza, and the public service office blocks. No problems with it here assuming that its shadow does not badly affect other residential buildings in the neighbourhood.
