DOUBLE BAY

The developer planner drones that the development will “enhance the vitality and vibrancy of Double Bay as an important commercial centre and will help to increase housing diversity and choice”. The same gibberish!

SYDNEY UNDER CONSTRUCTION IN 2018

At September 2018 there were 321 cranes across Sydney’s skyline

-of which 243 cranes were for residential developments

-with 124 cranes in Gore Hill, Macquarie Park and North Sydney

-just 6 cranes were in Eastern Sydney (that would be HTs Mascot and Pagewood?)

AND so it continues …

Why you might ask? Apart from the subliminal messaging that Sydney is growing … our population is growing … and the need for higher density

Why are there so many foreign buyers?

Capital Hill group, developers behind a plan to build a high-rise village of 200 homes in Ramsgate bypassed Georges River Council … because they can …

BECAUSE THEY CAN … Daily Telegraph Cartoon: Project Sydney: Gladys Berejiklian

… and submitted a rezoning review to transform the Ramsgate CBD – with plans for 10-storey buildings – to NSW Planning this month after Georges River Council failed to act on determining the proposal.

-the proposal was submitted to council on September 3 last year

-and rejected by the local planning panel on December 17

.the panel found it lacked strategic merit

.provided a high density development and increased population; no access to adequate public transport infrastructure

.out of context with the surrounding locality; increase the max height of 21m to 35m (10 storeys)

A massive new Coles supermarket and hundreds of homes are included in the plans.

The development site is at 193-201 Rocky Point Road, 66-68 Ramsgate Road and 2-6 Targo Road, Ramsgate.

To include:

-a village square, 5000sq m of retail and commercial space and residential buildings housing 197 apartments ranging from six storeys to 10 storeys in height.

Of course the developer planner submitted the proposal would come with significant public benefits and infrastructure including a large new public space or plaza, community facilities, and a Coles supermarket!

-to provide for interactive public art, soft landscape, new trees, shade, community events and local markets

-1, 2 and 3 bedroom apartments

Ramsgate Village would also include a public plaza at the heart of the site.
