It would be ‘the grey area’ application of all time.
On the one hand you have a precedent for 16 storeys with an established commercial use and a long established occupier, on the other hand you have the Custom House which in todays planning set up would be protected if the application were considered De Novo.
I am going to cop out horribly on this and suggest that it should be reclad and an angular extension should start at the eighth floor and be built at gentle slope over the ‘to be demolished shops’ on Eden Quay with the slope ending in line with the established building line of the ‘Seamans Building’
