[PRO] 147 Brebner Dr, West Lakes | 27m | 7 Levels | Res

7 level, 45 apartment building proposed for 147 Brebner Dr West Lakes.

Council opposed. The same developer has been knocked back previously. The city of CS wants to impose a 15m height limit on the site.

If Streetview has given me the right vacant block, this is next door to a pair of seven-storey apartment buildings. How can this proposal be twice as high as the council desires for the area!??

Does one of the councillors or senior staff live in a north-facing apartment of the adjacent tower and doesn't want to lose their views?

Looks good, would add more vibrancy and activity to the lake front and there's demand and growth in the area with the C&G development.

How can they oppose when there's the x2 7 story buildings next door, and the 7 - 8 story building down the road (Infinity Waters)?

Not to mention the David Jones and Cinema portions of the neighbouring shopping centre.

This sort of development is entirely consistent with a couple of decades of SA strategic plans that call for high density development in activity centres.

45 apartments in one building the same height as its neighbour has no impact on "urban character" grounds compared to demolishing 23 houses in the surrounding suburbs and building 2.

The councils rationale (which I don’t agree with) I think was there is a 7 storey building on the left side (Cedar) and a 2 storey building on the right (former Zak’s).. so the average/if you draw a line between the two - the result is 4 storeys.. which is their preferred height limit but silly if/when the 2 storey building gets developed one day...
I have heard the new concept is going through state Govt and should get approved.. plus there is majority hotel/serviced apt/commercial component while the previous was mainly residential..

The average should be with building setback only and not height, as is commonplace (e.g. setbacks for residential dwellings). 27m is fine. That block has been vacant for a long time.
Our state, our city, our future.

Plans lodged with coordinator-general for a $15m seven-storey apartment complex in West Lakes

PLANS for a $15.3 million seven-storey apartment complex in West Lakes are being assessed by the state coordinator-general.

Local firm CNS Investments is proposing to build 45 apartments, ranging from one to three bedrooms, across seven levels on Brebner Drive.

The plan is for a mixed-use complex of a restaurant, commercial tenancies and homes to be built on what is currently 1590 sq m of vacant land opposite Westfield West Lakes.

The plans for the waterfront development have been sent to the Coordinator-General, Jim Hallion, to be assessed before being formally lodged with the state’s main planning authority, the State Commission Assessment Panel.

Charles Sturt Council chief executive Paul Sutton said the application was on hold following the council’s feedback on the proposal.

“(The council) is not supportive of the proposed development for a number of reasons, including: exceeding maximum building height for the site, the bulky single form of the proposed building, impact on access to sunlight, unsuitable waste management provisions, overlooking and overshadowing impacts, and lack of carparking inclusion within the boundaries of the site,” Mr Sutton said. CNS Investments’ desire to develop the site – which has been vacant since 2010 – has been a drawn-out process.

It first lodged plans for a seven-storey apartment and office complex with the council back in 2015 but the application was refused.

Project manager Carumag Corporation was approached for comment.
