A developer in Melbourne, Australia, who has built a 72-level tower in the central city, has failed to build the underground car parking promised in the original development plans.

Norman Fay, Brady Group spokesman, did not dispute the developer failure to provide the promised car parking levels when challenged. Mr Fay said an application to retroactively alter the development permit was now being considered by the planning department. Brady Group originally had obtained a 2009 developer permit off planning minister Justin Madden to build the tower, with just one level of underground parking, but later got an updated permit off Matthew Guy to proceed with three levels of underground parking. It is not clear who failed to check if the  building adhered to the updated permit but, regardless, the developer is in breach of their permit.
