The City of Port Phillip considered the proposal to construct three mixed use towers of 2 x 34 storeys (105m approx.), and 1 x 52 storeys (158m approx.). 

The officers raised concerns about the 51 level tower. They preferred a tower of no more 40 levels. They did not support the over supply of car parking. 
  • "the height of the 51 level tower would be inappropriate and should be reduced to not more than 40 levels, and the street and/or side setbacks of Towers 1 and 2 should be increased to fully comply with the preferred minimums. 
  • concerns regarding the design of the new road between the towers, the location and design of open space, the level of activation facing Bertie Street, 
  • an over-supply of car parking"
Note: the Planning Minister is the decision maker for Capital City Zoned Fishermans Bend.
