A proposed 14-storey building earmarked for the Wollongong CBD could bring with it almost 500 vehicle movements a day.
Wollongong City Council is considering a development application for the building on Kembla Street, opposite the Woolworths supermarket.
The mixed use building would include two levels for eight commercial businesses with the remaining levels made up of residential accommodation - including a penthouse - on top.
There would be a total of 102 apartments in the complex, with more than half being two-bedroom units, spread across two blocks in the development.
At present there is a two-storey building on the site - previously occupied by Mission Australia - which has already been approved for demolition by council.
It would be several storeys higher than the IRT Parkside development on Stewart Street and the seven-storey IMB headquarters being planned for the corner of Kembla and Burelli streets.
A traffic study included as part of the application estimated the building would account for an extra 488 vehicle movements in the CBD every day.

"It is assumed that most movements will be in the peak AM and peak PM periods coinciding with the commencement and completion of the average working day," the study stated.
It also noted the closeness to the CBD may mean some residents will chose to walk rather than drive, or maybe catch one of the bus routes that pass through the city.
The development will include car parking underground.
"A total of 167 car parking spaces are provided over two dedicated basement parking levels, and residential visitor parking on the ground floor level," the submission stated.
"Commercial parking is provided at a mezzanine parking level and part of level 1."
There would be 104 car parking spaces for residents and a total of 63 spaces for visitors and commercial parking.
Residents would enter and exit via a driveway in Stewart Street while the commercial parking would be accessed via a separate entrance off Keira Street.
The development is on public exhibition until June 26.
