Precinct 2: Hall and Homer – Secondary Retail and Office Precinct


Recommendations

Built Form

  • Preferred building heights ranging between 15m and 53m, with mandatory Floor Area Ratio controls ranging between 3:1 and 5:1
  • Sensitive interfaces to the residential properties on Taylor Street and Margaret Street achieved through providing landscaped setbacks (minimum 3m)

Streetscape

  • More attractive public realm along Hall Street and Homer Street through generous footpaths and continuous and consistent tree planting. This will require achieving building setbacks of a minimum of 2m in some places.
  • Opportunities for public open space:
    • Transforming car parking on Hall Street into the Des Nunan Park
    • As part of the redevelopment of large sites (sites above 2,000m2)
  • More street furniture such as seating

Access and Movement

  • Consolidated car parking facility
  • Improved walkability (north-south movement) by creating raised shared areas on key pedestrian intersections and activating laneways through design measures

We want to know if you agree and if you have any other ideas. What do you imagine for the future of Hall and Homer Street? What do you think of the proposed Des Nunan Park?
