Crown Casino Tower

5 December 2016

It seems like every day there is a new proposal for a tower on our harbour. The latest from Star City Casino is for a 215-metre high hotel with residential apartments on its Pyrmont site. This would represent a mammoth increase on what is now on the site and what the LEP permits. Impacts would include overshadowing homes, wind tunnels, lost public and private harbour views, and strains on infrastructure and services. The proposal is not part of any long term strategic plan for the area and appears to be about matching planned and proposed towers at Darling Harbour and Barangaroo.

I have asked the minister to stop the proposal before it goes on exhibition: HERE.
