High rise for Coffs city centre

A MULTI-STOREY commercial building in the Coffs Harbour City Centre has been approved by the Joint Regional Planning Panel for northern NSW.

No 218 Harbour Drive will be 17.3m tall and will have three levels of office space, one level of basement car parking and an air-conditioning plant room on the roof.

The chairman of JRPP North, Garry West, said it was a significant construction project.

He said although the building was 17.3m tall, the proposed development met the current controls and exceeded the Coffs Harbour Draft City Centre Plan for this area by only 30cm.

He said the main section of the building would be 12m and the higher parts of the development would not add to the overall bulk of the building, with a raked roof falling south from Harbour Drive.

There will be a 26-space basement car park with waste storage, lift and stairwell, a ground floor with 11 car spaces and 340 square metres of office space, a first floor with 490 square metres of office space and a second floor with 460 square metres of office space.
