    When is this overdevelopment going to be curbed!! The problems in every area this is creating is extraordinary !!
    Totally out of control and irresponsible by those allowing this to happen

    I agree with Marion- this overdevelopment is getting out of control. This will create a wind tunnel on the street, excessive congestion on small roads and public transport, and will be an eyesore at 8 floors.

    What is happening in this nice little strip of Brunswick, that is completely being destroyed by these overdeveloped monstrosities??
    Enough is enough. I object to the overpopulation and general overdevelopment the council is allowing in this area. The strain on the current infrastructure on Lygon St is ridiculous, with no plans to make it any better.

    Aside from the massive overreach on height the proposed facade design is really poor for a building nestled in among a number of heritage listed sites - I would urge anyone objecting to council to push them to also reject on grounds of appearance and a lack of sympathy to the character of the area... this looks like a Docklands office building not a Brunswick East living space.

    With the luxury of 20-20 hindsight would Moreland Council approve the 1960’s public housing developments? Is there any parallels to be drawn here? This proposal seeks to do too much - I object.

  7. Damien Roberts commented

    Whilst the need for the higher density living into the future is acknowledged and necessary, this development is incongruent with the immediate environment, and an insult to the heritage buildings that surround it. There are numerous developments of similar dimensions in the vicinity of this that do not detrimentally impact neighbouring buildings in the way that this would; the afternoon and evening light would no longer reach dwellings and business on the eastern side of Lygon Street. I implore the council to reject this proposal in favour of something sensible and fair; 3 or 4 stories would not seem unreasonable. I object to these current plans.
