Conclusion The Design Advisory Committee's comments on the design elements for the proposal were requested. A verbal presentation was given to the Design Advisory Committee in regard to this application.

Moved by Mr Davies, seconded by Mr Thierfelder That the Design Advisory Committee, having considered the proposed demolition of the "Law Chambers" Building and the refurbishment, including alterations and additions, of the building at 553-565 (Lots 22 and 23) and 567 ­ 579A (Lots 20 and 21) Hay Street, Perth:1. supports the refurbishment and additions to the existing Public Trustee Building (to be known as `Church House') but is concerned about the proposed cladding materials. The submission of an improved rendering of the design might address the concerns however more information is required in relation to the true nature of the façades, including the design and details of the light boxes; does not support the ground floor retail tenancies with double frontages and suggests that the internal arcade be removed, giving priority to fronting the existing pedestrian thoroughfare on the eastern side of the building.

COMPLIANCE WITH PLANNING SCHEME: Land Use The subject site is located in the City Centre Use Area of the Civic Precinct (P7) under City Planning Scheme No. 2. The Civic Precinct will maintain its present function as the focal point of the city's open space and parkland system, an area of heritage interest and the principal centre for civic and judicial activities. Office development will be permitted in the north eastern section of the Precinct, however, use of office buildings at street level should stimulate pedestrian interest and activity. `Dining', `Entertainment' and `Retail' uses are all Preferred Uses (Contemplated where fronting St Georges Terrace), `Special Residential' is a Contemplated Use and `Office' is a Preferred Use in the City Centre use area of the Civic Precinct. Development Requirements The restoration and maintenance of buildings, groups of buildings and other objects which have substantial historical or other significance will be encouraged. New buildings must be designed to be in close harmony with the style and character of the surrounding buildings. In particular, the area immediately around Cathedral Avenue is to be further enhanced as an historic area and improvements to Cathedral Square as a public space encouraged. The proposal's compliance with the City Planning Scheme development standards is summarised below:Development Standard Maximum Plot Ratio Proposed 6.0:1 (46,103m² including 6,400 transferred from 54 ­ 56 Barrack Street, Perth to 108 St Georges Terrace, Perth) Required / Permitted 5.0:1 (38,425m²)

Conservation of heritage places and heritage areas. Provision of specific facilities on private land. Public view considerations.

Grounds for Bonus Plot Ratio: As justification for the bonus plot ratio the applicant proposes the provision of:Conservation of a Heritage Place The proposed development involves the retention, conservation and adaptive reuse of the State Heritage Listed `State Treasury Building' and the `Land Titles Building' guided by a Conservation Report prepared for the site in 1998. A Heritage Impact Statement prepared by Palassis Architects states that: Externally the heritage buildings will be conserved to the highest standard using best practice conservation methods. Intrusive fixtures, including door grills and window mounted air conditioning units will be removed and where possible, missing significant elements, such as slate roofs, decorative roof ironwork and dormer windows, will be reconstructed in accordance with original detail. Damaged significant elements, such as the structurally degraded balconies to Hay Street and Cathedral Avenue, will be appropriately repaired and restored. Internal spaces will be refurbished to accommodate a combination of publically accessible hotel, office, retail, dining and entertainment uses.

Public Open Space The development proposes a `Civic Square' surrounding the north, east and west of the proposed office tower, including a public open space area between the office tower and Perth Town Hall. The applicant has provided the following assessment against the Essential Criteria of the City's Bonus Plot Ratio Policy: The spaces will have a distinctive heritage symbolism and character and is of sufficient area so as to be practical for users. The spaces are open to the public, will have significant northern solar access and is provided with partial protection from the elements. The spaces are well defined between the heritage buildings and the proposed tower and has ground level uses. The space is safe for users given its central location, the high level of passive surveillance from the surrounding buildings and the lighting provided. The space will consist of high quality materials, finishes and furniture and will be maintained by the owners of the site.

Pedestrian Facilities

4 AUGUST 2011

It is proposed to provide pedestrian links throughout the site, increasing the connectivity through the site from the surrounding streets and public areas. The paths will also allow public access throughout the existing heritage buildings, previously not available, with numerous points of interest and activity. The applicant has provided the following assessment against the Essential Criteria of the City's Bonus Plot Ratio Policy: The paths provide access to areas of heritage interest not previously accessible. The paths are generally provided with a level of protection from the elements. Variations in levels have been kept to a minimum, with consideration to the existing level changes on the site. The paths provide continuous linkages from the existing pedestrian network throughout the site.

CONCLUSION: The Design Advisory Committee's comments on the awarding of the bonus plot ratio and the design of the proposed development were sought for the following: The proposed height of the Annex Building and its integration with the scale of the Perth Town Hall and the Land Titles buildings. The impact of the fourth floor level tenancy including the proposed overhang above the existing height level of the State Treasury Building. The design and location of the proposed masonry walls and columns for the office tower, having consideration for any impact on interface between the buildings on the site. The impact of the proposed vehicle entrance into the basement level on Cathedral Square and pedestrian access through the Precinct.

A verbal presentation was given to the Design Advisory Committee in regard to this application.

Moved by Mr Hames, seconded by Mr Davies That the Design Advisory Committee, having considered the proposed conservation of the heritage buildings for the adaptive reuse as a 48 room hotel, including dining, retail entertainment and office uses and the construction of a 35 storey office tower with basement parking at the State Treasury Building (Lot 1108) St Georges Terrace, 54 ­ 56 (Lot 1065) Barrack Street and Cathedral Avenue (Lot 100), Perth:(Cont'd)

commends the adaptive reuse of, and restoration works to the heritage buildings for the purpose of a hotel and related facilities and also commends the way in which the new office tower is to fit within the confines of the heritage buildings; supports the awarding of a 20% plot ratio bonus on the grounds of the extensive heritage conservation works, the provision of a public plaza and pedestrian links through the site; supports two-way access through Cathedral Avenue, with access extending to Hay Street. The Committee does not consider that this link would be used as a `rat run' and acknowledges the requirement to maintain access to the Cathedral and to allow this link to be used as a hotel drop-off by taxis and private vehicles; opposes the `scar' that the entry ramp to the basement car parking will create in Cathedral Avenue and the potential disruption it will cause to connections across the adjacent public square and its impact on the Cathedral; considers that the design of the proposed `Annex' building should be modified to:5.1 reduce the height of the building so that it does not exceed the height of the cornice of the adjacent Land Titles Building, including the removal of the `floating pergola' element; 5.2 improves the visual presence and acknowledges the importance of the eastern entry to the Town Hall as viewed from Hay Street; 5.3 utilize a pallet of materials that distinguishes it from the proposed office tower;

supports the location of the proposed function room but considers that the design requires a more sensitive resolution, particularly in regard to the use of materials; supports the height of the proposed office tower on the basis that it is contiguous with the height of development in St Georges Terrace and if it can be demonstrated through the provision of details of the façade skin that it provides a `neutral' backdrop to the significant heritage buildings on the site; (Cont'd)

requires detail of the materials, finishes and design of the facades to the new buildings as there is insufficient architectural resolution for the Committee to determine whether these are appropriate for the development; accepts the modifications to the column widths at the base of the office tower but requests that images be provided that show the view to and from the office lobby and the Perth Town Hall in order to confirm that visual connectivity is achieved between these significant elements.

The Design Advisory Committee was requested to comment on the design of the proposed development. A verbal presentation was given to the Design Advisory Committee in regard to this application.

Moved by Ms Morgan, seconded by Mr Thierfelder That the Design Advisory Committee, having considered the proposed development of a proposed ten-level mixed-use development containing 60 apartments, a café and 60 car parking bays (including the transfer of plot ratio from 474 Murray Street, Perth) at 35 (Lot 5) and 39 (Lot 4) Wellington Street, East Perth; 1. notes the variations to the City Planning Scheme development standards that are being sought and that no adequate planning justification has been provided in support of these variations. Further consideration needs to be given to the impact the development has on its environment having particular regard for the impact on the streetscape and the adjacent properties; supports the modification of the balconies on the side elevations, reducing them to `Juliet' style balconies which would enable the internal living spaces to be increased in size while maintaining the ability to open up these spaces with the use of sliding screen doors; acknowledges the attempt to improve the ground floor presentation to Wellington Street, but questions the viability of a café or other commercial tenancy in this location.
