The site is located within a mixed use zone within the Doonside Street precinct to the south of Victoria Gardens Shopping Centre. The proposal is predominantly residential with a food and drink tenancy on the ground floor. The facade successfully incorporates elements of the existing warehouse building that are heritage listed to provide an active street frontage towards the cafe and residential lobby.
MGA prepared a traffic and transport impact assessment that reviewed the capacity of the adjoining road network, the adequacy of the parking provision and the functionality of the on-site parking layout. The provision of additional bicycle parking spaces and pedestrian improvements to the site’s frontage which provide a direct link to the tram stop along Victoria Street also support mode travel by sustainable modes.
