The changing face of Bonar Street, Arncliffe is set to continue with a plan to replace four single-storey dwellings with a six-storey $7.6 million residential block with 26 apartments.
The development is located in a R4 High Density zone on the southern side of Bonar Street which includes a number of recently constructed residential flats buildings including a development with 55 apartments next door.
Opposite the site, on the northern side of Bonar Street is an R2 Low Density Residential zone comprised of single and dual occupancy dwellings.
"The proposal is considered to be consistent with the desired future character of the area and changing density of the locality," according to its Statement of Environmental Effects.
The planned development would include eight one-bedroom, 16 two-bedroom and two three-bedroom apartments, and a communal rooftop open space.
There would be three levels of basement parking with 34 spaces.
The proposed development sees the amalgamation of four lots at 55-61 Bonar Street to create a 1,213 square-metre site.
The development has been designed to achieve compatibility with the desired future character of development in the area, as anticipated by the prescribed height and floor space ratio controls, the Statement of Environmental Effects states.
"The proposal will contribute to increased supply and a variety of dwelling types in line with the objectives of the R4 zone. The building has been designed to minimise or mitigate any adverse impact on existing and future development of adjoining allotments.
"The proposal is considered to have largely positive social and economic impacts, and manageable impacts on the environment. Ultimately, the proposal represents a positive redevelopment of the site and is considered to be in the public interest."
The development application will be determined by the Bayside Local Planning Panel.
