Congratulations to Milestone Partners on the acceptance of their re-zoning application for the Lochlyn Hill development. I’m glad I got to work on the design part! It was the back and forth on the proffers that proved the biggest hurdle for the project. Here are some of the supporting images I prepared for the application. […]
