Greens slam Festival Plaza monstrosity

9 April 2024

The Greens have slammed the State Government's approval of a second Walker Tower on the Festival Plaza. 

"There's only one thing worse than a skyscraper towering over Parliament House and that's two skyscrapers," said Greens Planning Spokesperson Robert Simms MLC. 

"This 38-storey monstrosity will totally overshadow the Plaza. It's a sad indictment on the Labor Party that yet another office tower is the best they can come up with for this iconic site." 

"I hope that taxpayers will not be asked to subsidise this capture of our public space and the Government must reveal how much the Walker Corporation will be paying to lease this site.”

“It's very saddening that once again, our planning system is serving the interests of developers rather than the community."
