The plan for the project now allows developers Golden Group to build up to the maximum height permitted by airspace regulations.

The group has plans to construct buildings up to 53 storeys. The WAPC had previously wanted a a 30-storey cap placed on heights.

Victoria Park chief executive Arthur Kyron said he was pleased that the WAPC had approved the structure plan, as limiting the building heights would ‘lessen the benefits of the development and could throw the viability of the entire project into question’.

‘It is one of several developments adding up to more than $8 billion in investment on the Burswood peninsula and in the Town.’

‘It is about time the City of Perth realised that there are attractive options outside of the CBD for people to live in high, medium-density or single residential housing in an exciting entertainment precinct.’

The plan is for a mixed-use development with about 4500 dwellings, up to 31,000sqm of retail floor space, up to 60,000sqm of office floor space and a hotel.

A public marina is planned for the western side of the peninsula.
