Yorkshire Brewery development plans
Yesterday I reported that an application to demolish parts of the former Yorkshire Brewery in Collingwood has been lodged. You can see all the plans here.
The below picture shows what will be retained and what won’t be. Seems that the significant brick structures will all be retained, while the silos will go.
As for the development itself, it will take up much of the land that is currently used as a carpark, with buildings going right up to the brick brew tower (the larger yellow square in the below illustration).
Some development is a good thing, and of course it’s good that they’re incorporating the existing brick structures rather than fighting to demolish them. But what I really don’t like is the height of the proposed development – 17 stories.
This is how it will look viewed from Robert St (you know, that tiny little alleyway-type street running down the side of the silos, with the Karate school opposite the carpark entrance).
Yep. That is what 17 stories is going to look like.
