    A development of this scale cannot be assessed without the existence of a comprehensive development plan for this entire block, including the old water board site on the McEvoy Street boundary, and beyond to Green Square. Numerous tall residential buildings already exist to the east of the site in an area bordered by Danks Street, Bourke Street, Lachlan Street and South Dowling Street. Do we want more massive high rise apartments stretching west, creating wind tunnels like Central Park? The answer has to be no. Streets in the area are already clogged by existing traffic, so creating 469 more residences in 31 metre high buildings will exacerbate that further. The impact will not be mitigated by the obligation to include one small park in the development. No DA of this scale can be approved without a comprehensive vision for the whole area, or precedents for excessive height and residential density will be set with devastating impact in the future. On that basis the DA should be rejected until City of Sydney Council has formulated and delivered a vision for the community in this area.

    I agree with Alexa. This development is of a huge scale and will have a massive impact on the surrounding area. It must surely be considered within the context of a cohesive vision for the entire precinct. It is such as shame that there has not been more co-ordinated planning for the redevelopment of Waterloo and Zetland. The mish-mash of building styles, materials, size and finishes of new developments has really diminished the aesthetics of the area. Let's try and get it right from here on in.
