The Project is a mixed use “Mini-Tower’, that marks and punctuates a strategic corner at the south western end of Bondi Junction. The long rectangular site of 3:1, provides a dramatic built form as the proportions change radically depending on the viewpoint. The form is made more sculptural by the application of a consistent material palette on all facades.

The Project contains 2 levels of retail/commercial with 9 levels of apartments above, made up of a mix of apartment types including studios, 2 level maisonettes, 1 and 3 bedroom apartments. The shallow plans and corner siting ensure that all are well cross ventilated, with very good light quality.

The Built form is in 2 parts; podium and a tower. To Spring Street a 6 level podium relates to the DCP requirement for built form along Spring Street. Within this 6 level podium, level 2 is recessed to distinguish the 2 levels of commercial space from the residential above. This 2 level expression turns the corner to Denison Street, creating a lower podium and setting up the required 2 metres setback for the tower form above. This 2 level podium scale responds to the predominant 2 level built form of the terrace housing to the West. In this way the corner form responds to and stitches together, the differing scales and building types of each street.
