    13 residential apartments and 3 ground floor commercial tenancies, but only 10 car spaces? Street parking in the area is already hard to find! Please ensure developers provide at least one car space per apartment.

    I support the number of car spaces outlined in the application. The area is very well served by public transport, active transport and car share and I do not expect owners of many of the 8 1-bedroom apartments will have cars. 30.5% of postcode 2042 dwellings do not have any vehicles as opposed to 10.4% for the rest of NSW.

    This is a good design whose size and scale is suitable for the area and I am keen for the eyesore of the petrol station to be removed. The proposed brick colour is kind of ugly but I can appreciate that some would like it.

    I oppose the DA in its current form however with some adjustments I beleive it would be a worthy addition to the King St landscape. The proposed development greatly overshadows the rear of the Newtown Garden Market and there is a risk that this will impinge on their ability to use the rear of their site to maintain and grow plants which could result in the business having to relocate. Newtown Garden Market provides a much needed visual respite on King St with plants decorating the double frontage instead of the never ending row of identical shopfronts and cafes. In addition, its the only garden store selling plants and garden supplies in the vicintiy of Newtown, Enmore, Petersham, St Peters, Tempe etc. There are many florists but no garden centres.

    However, I do believe the removal of site access from King St is an improvement to pedestrian safety as I have often seen drivers unsure of how they should approach the property and threatening pedestrians trying to cross Angel St. Having the driveway off Angel St instead will resolve this.
