    Sadly it is another development JUST where everybody these days wants to make money of one sort or another. I am writing to the Council about this today anyway.

    I am shocked at the 13 storey building, but also a little worried about the 5 storey building in front of it in Riley Street. I have lived here for 42 years, and we LOVE our area, and want to continue to love it.

    However, the description and picture of the building on Riley Street is a hotchpotch of frontage and although it may not have to be Heritage, it looks like a fifties spec-builder thing - built in a hurry. NOT the sort of thing we need in Riley Street. Perhaps they could come down a couple of floors and also design the front so that it looks RIGHT here! At the moment it would be a disgrace. Three storeys and a different design for the frontage would be a good start!
    Maybe we can argue about the huge apartment building? There is no parking here and we wonder about that and its implications on other people in the area further South.
    Sorry, but I DO CARE.

    I agree with everything Evelyn has written. I've lived on Stanley St for close to 20 years, this development will be a visual blight on our area and adversely affect it's character and amenity, in terms of parking (already stretched to breaking point), blocking district views for many neighbours and overshadowing our low rise neighbourhood.

    The thought of enduring still more construction noise just after the two year renovation of the Residence apartment block and the simultaneous construction of the new auditorium at Sydney Grammar is particularly distressing.

    The development application for 91 - 93 Riley Street for an apartment tower is totally in appropriate for this place which is of national heritage significance. If this and the new auditorium at Sydney Grammar goes ahead it will permanently destroy what is left of old East Sydney and Little Italy.
