Too jolly tall in Jolimont

Original post 16 Feb 2021:

“There’s been considerable thought and effort put into the facade of the new building, and how that complements the existing heritage building on the site.” Quote from today’s @theageaustralia, by planners @human_habitats. But 3x the recommended #heightlimit. @bayleyward.architects. Original house ‘Eblana’ built c1883 for Thomas Jackson of @youngandjackson’s hotel, architect #JamesGall, who did a LOT of 1880s mansions. So much brass. No further comment.

Update Feb 2023: in Oct 2021 im they hit a permit, but 5 floors instead of 9.
