Sunland Deliberates Grace on Coronation Appeal


The future of Sunland’s controversial “Grace on Coronation” development was thrown into uncertainty earlier this year after a sole neighbouring resident won an appeal against the approval of the three-tower development.

A unanimous Court of Appeal judgment overturned an earlier Planning and Environment Court decision which approved the development despite its towers significantly exceeding the height limitations outlined in the planning scheme.

Speaking at Urbanity ’18, executive chairman and founder of Sunland Soheil Abedian expressed disappointment in the outcome and hoped that people would “come to their senses”.

Abedian confirmed that the Sunland board was considering expert advice and Sunland’s directors would make a “final decision” by next month as to the future of the development.

“We won the court case, and we lost it in the appeal, and now it is now [in the hands] of the board.

“The board is looking at all the options open to them, to discuss that matter and make a final decision by next month.

“I can’t really say anything more about that.”

Abedian said he respected the Court of Appeal’s judgment, but that Brisbane had “missed the opportunity” for a city-making development project.

“The city has lost one of the greatest opportunities.”
