A bit small and broad as a street tree! - 1-2m .....
Why not go for Gingkgo - they make splendid, lightly canopied, tough, 
drought-resistant street trees; and about as far from Rosaceae as you can get.
If you wanted a nice, exotic tree with a name not many will have heard of, 
and a decent rate of growth, and narrowish habit, try Poliothyrsis sinensis
Beautiful leaves, good spring & autumn colour, and flowering!

There is a consideration to plant a varied mix other than typical ornamental 
Rosaceae varieties to try and build resilience within our exiting Highway 
tree stock. The ‘Desert Willow’ is being considered and wondered if anyone 
had experience of it, for example will it reach heights to accommodate the 
average vehicle size and tolerant of urban life/environment, as a street tree?
