But residents from the Willoughby Area Action Group is organising a meeting on February 11 in response.

Fairfax reports the Planning Assessment Commission will hold a public meeting as the final opportunity for the public to voice concerns before a decision is made, in the next two months.

The original plan for around 600 apartments and high-rise towers have been modified after local reaction.

When the network moves, it is expected to look at areas around the Australian Technology Park at Redfern or in Pyrmont.

A Nine spokesperson said that wouldn’t be anytime soon,  adding ”no For Sale sign yet”.

Nine’s former GTV9 site in Richmond already has residents in its new apartments.
