Leighton Development’s proposal for a new residential development for the western
section of the Ashmore Estate.

At 8 storeys, the building will exceed Council’s height limits under the current Ashmore
Estate, Development Control Plan, that allows for between 4 and 6 stories.

The building will be 2 stories higher than all of the other more recently constructed
residential buildings in the Ashmore precinct.

View westwards overlooking the Ashmore Estate with the Motto Lift Tower in the centre.
The tower which services the lift and other services of the 6 storey Motto apartment
building is being referenced by the City Mayor, Clover Moore, to justify the proposed
height increase from 4-6 storey to 8 and 9 storey apartment blocks.
