Here are some photos from the event. We arranged some helium balloons on strings that would replicate the heights of the respective buildings associated with the proposed development. The photos demonstrate how massive the scale of the proposed buildings would be in relation to the surrounds. In particular, Building B (the tower) will dwarf the Newcastle East Public School and block views of the city from Wolfe Street. Thanks to George for the excellent camera work.
A nine-storey (172 dwelling) development on the old NBN television studios at 11-17 Mosbri Crescent, the Hill threatens our beautiful Arcadia Park, the adjacent heritage conservation zone, and our neighbourhood. On Saturday 13 April 2019, residents of The Hill and concerned friends will meet to discuss the Crescent Newcastle proposal for the site, and the risks the development presents.
