As you may be aware, Lamb Corp is planning to build two towers, 30 and 40 storeys, on the CHCH site at Caroline and Jackson.  The total number of units is planned to be 618 — a huge number for this relatively small infill property.

The proposed design with two glass towers, has been publicized extensively in local media and on the display signs on the property, and Lamb Corp has gone so far as to set up a sales office with floor plans and pricing.

All of this has happened without having an approved plan!

The lot is zoned D6, which calls for 15 metres in height.  The towers Lamb Corp are proposing will be 125 metres — quite a large difference.
