In Pyrmont NSW on “PAN 34094 Alterations and...” at 34 Pirrama Road Pyrmont NSW 2009:

Garry Silk commented

This is an extremely appropriate public use for the former Arrow Dive building, offering spectacular harbour views to the north framed for the most part by heritage buildings (Jones Bay Wharf to the west and the former REVY complex to the east).

This location has great potential to be a destination for pedestrians (and cyclists) on the harbourside walkway linking the CBD and Blackwattle Bay (and then points further west). This walkway was part of the original plans in the 1990's but in this spot has not really been achieved because it was owned by the Commonwealth. The recently publicised framework for a denser Pyrmont/Ultimo reiterates the desire to achieve the harbourside walkway. I would encourage Council to give consent to this use and in the future to work with the applicant and NSW agencies to achieve an improved (and wider) walkway interface with the water in this area, to the benefit of all.
