Madden chose the day before Anzac Day to announce that the building over the road from the Shrine can be as high as 60 metres.
Of course it is not high enough for the developer, who wanted 117 metres, and Madden has set it back 20 metres from St Kilda Road. However, it still exceeds the original height limit for that area which was 36 metres.
Why on earth couldn't he get it right?
OK this developer is knocked out but the next one will come up with a 60 metre building.
IT MUST BE NO HIGHER THAN 36 METRES, MR MADDEN
