GMU was appointed to assess the visual impacts of the intended redevelopment at 161 Sussex Street, Sydney for GLInvestmentCo Pty Ltd ATF GL No.1 Trust. The works included carrying out include detailed photographic documentation from the surrounding public domain where the proposed development is potentially visible from as well as an in-depth analysis of views to the proposed development in the immediate, medium and long distances.
