The proposal is for the demolition of the existing 'Conservatory of Music' building and steel tower to facilitate the construction of two apartment buildings containing a total of 45 dwellings, communal spaces and a café.
The building on the corner of Wilmot Street and Sandy Bay Road is to contain the café and is to be 7 storeys with a maximum height of 22.35m. The other larger apartment building is to be 8 storeys and extend to a maximum height of 27.030m. There will be two levels of basement car parking containing 86 spaces and bicycle storage which is accessed via a ramp from Wilmott Street.
The existing mosaic mural is to be retained and incorporated into the Sandy bay Road frontage of the development.
There is also associated infrastructure and road reservation works proposed within Wilmot Street and Sandy Bay Road.
The planning application can be viewed on the Development Portal.
