There was a plan to build a complex on the old freight yards of the Harcourt rail station. Which are now occupied by the Ericom switch centre on Adelaide Rd and DIT music school on Upper Hatch st.
If it went ahead it would have given a unity between Montague House (the old Dunlop building) and the Harcourt building (the garage). If you examine both of those buildings the heights and front elevations are broadly inline.
A new gang of three would have sprung up, but on a larger scale and with a much higher standard of architecture. (not to say that 1 adelaide rd is bad)
Coming back to increased densities at public transport nodes. Clever six storey development with virtually 100% footprints. But unlike Sandyford built in the right place.
