|Building elements and appearance|
Development addresses the street with commercial showrooms, retail and industrial tenancies and well defined entries for pedestrians on the ground floor.
Buildings are to be well articulated with external facades treatments, varied material and design detail, balconies, recessed doors and doorways, windows, shade and screening devices and outdoor planting that provides a distinctively commercial appearance.Buildings incorporate appropriate weather protection, screening, and shading structures on the building facades to channel breezes, filter sunlight and provide rain protection.
|Ground level treatment|
Development along Thompson Street and Murray Street activates street frontages through a variety of measures, including varied design concepts and providing a high frequency of front entries or doors to commercial, industrial, retail, community and communal uses.
Front entries to all buildings active street frontages and are emphasised through architectural and landscape treatment, pedestrian paths and the provision of continuous awnings.
Pedestrian generating uses including showrooms and commercial uses, should be located at the street frontage to provide visual interest to the street, create a more pedestrianised scale and assist in passive surveillance of the public realm.Buildings should be designed to address car parking areas with windows and entrances providing passive surveillance.
Podiums are designed to address, activate and provide a visual appeal to street frontages.
Podiums include articulations in building facades and landscape treatments to reduce the visual bulk of the building and provide an appropriate transition between the ground floor and upper storeys.
Podiums maintain a strong relationship with the street by framing and activating the public realm and entrance spaces while reinforcing the street hierarchy.Podium tops provide valuable space for communal open spaces and roof gardens.
