A New Vision 111+222

A new development application has been lodged for the Vision site (where the Vision building was planned, with many apartments over $1M being sold off-the-plan in 2006 to 2009).

The new development consists of two buildings, and is called 111+222. It is located on 111 Mary St and 222 Margaret St. Registrations are already being taken for off-the-plan sales.

222 Margaret St Tower:

•The taller tower is currently known as 222 Margaret Street and is 90 levels (297m) in height.
•A 5 star 380 room hotel is proposed for this tower, however the hotel operator is not yet known.
◦The hotel will have a ballroom.
•The tower will mostly comprise of 790 one, two and three bedroom residential apartments over the 90 floors.
•Restaurants & bars will be situated throughout the project with a key cross block link from Mary to Margaret Street to be established in stage 1.
•Depending on if the tower's 297m height is AGL (above ground level), 222 Margaret St will share the title of Australia's tallest tower with Eureka Tower - currently the tallest in Australia.
•It is not yet known if there will be an observation deck at the top - similar to what it's predecessor, Vision had.

111 Mary St Tower:
•111 Margaret St tower is the smallest of the two, rising 34 levels.
•This tower will be completely office.
•AMP Capital is funding this part of the development
•980 car spaces will be built across eight underground levels.
The development has been designed by Bates Smart Architects and boasts a glass cylinder like design for the taller building. Billbergia will lodge the development application this week after releasing the plans to the media.

The development is receiving significant interest.

It will have an impact on a number of apartment buildings, especially 212 Margaret next door, and will block views from Charlotte Towers to the park.
