Andrews backs Crown tower despite MP split

November 14, 2017

Premier Daniel Andrews says Crown casino's planned 90-storey tower is an outstanding project.

Victoria's premier has backed a decision to approve Crown casino's 90-storey tower redevelopment, despite opposition from a cabinet minister.

Local member and Housing Minister Martin Foley reportedly described the project an "unmitigated disaster" at a Southbank Residents' Association meeting in October, in a swipe at Planning Minister Richard Wynne's decision to approve the 90-level skyscraper.

"This is an outstanding project, one that has been properly considered and one that is good for 3000 jobs," Premier Daniel Andrews told reporters on Tuesday.
