Plans to Add a New Commercial Office Tower at Hamilton Harbour Development Lodged

An application for the fifth and final portion of the Hamilton Harbour development that seeks the establishment of a multi-storey commercial office building on the corner of Hercules Street and Northshore Way has been lodged.

“KSD-2.0”, designed by COX Architecture, is a 14-storey and 56m high commercial office tower on a site located at 12 Hercules Street and has a total land area of 2,325sqm. Access to the proposed development is gained over its adjoining land located at 485 Kingsford Smith Drive, thus forming part of the application.

“The design of the building is contemporary including a number of modern elements to visually enhance the space and orientation of the building being located on a corner,” planners at RPS noted about the proposal’s architectural treatment.

“Specifically, the building has been oriented to ensure the podium car parking is located on the less prominent corner. In addition, the building incorporates greenery on the façade of the building through well designed landscaping elements on the sleeve of the Podium.”
