Par­ties in Uni­son on build­ing

Eastern Reporter - - News - Kristie Lim

THE Metro Cen­tral Joint De­vel­op­ment As­sess­ment Panel has ap­proved stage 2 of the Uni­son de­vel­op­ment on Rail­way Pa­rade in Maylands, com­pris­ing a three­storey mixed-use build­ing with 120 apart­ments and three com­mer­cial ten­an­cies.

Ap­pli­cant Fin­bar Group’s pro­posal for a three-storey de­vel­op­ment worth $21 mil­lion, in­clud­ing a four-storey cor­ner el­e­ment, with one restau­rant, two of­fices and apart­ments, was unan­i­mously sup­ported by the panel at its Au­gust 3 meet­ing.

Con­di­tions in­clude a con­struc­tion man­age­ment plan, acous­tic noise mod­el­ling re­port, refuse and re­cy­cling man­age­ment plan, land­scap­ing, retic­u­la­tion and set­back vari­a­tions.

In May 2014, JDAP ap­proved an ap­pli­ca­tion for 347 apart­ments, one restau­rant, one con­ve­nience store and two of­fices.

Stage 1 is on the south­west­ern por­tion of the de­vel­op­ment ad­join­ing Tenth Av­enue and is oc­cu­pied by res­i­dents.

The orig­i­nal pro­posal for stage 2 com­prised a 10storey res­i­den­tial tower, but it was re­placed with a three-storey res­i­den­tial de­vel­op­ment on the north­east­ern por­tion ad­join­ing Kennedy Street.

Con­struc­tion will take place within two years of the ap­proval.

The City of Bayswa­ter’s newly formed De­sign Re­view Panel sup­ported the de­vel­op­ment.

PTS Plan­ning direc­tor Peter Simp­son said the de­vel­op­ment had one and two-bed­room dwellings and a “sig­nif­i­cant com­mu­nal lo­cal space” which pro­vided a good in­ter­face with the sur­round­ing area.

Fin­bar Group gen­eral man­ager Scott Cameron said there was sig­nif­i­cant land­scap­ing po­ten­tial.

Panel mem­ber and Bayswa­ter Deputy Mayor Chris Cor­nish said he and neigh­bour­ing res­i­dents were happy with stage 1 and sup­ported the low­ered height for stage 2.
