In Mount Lawley WA on “Proposed Construction of...” at 77 Forrest Street, Mount Lawley, WA, 6050:

Daisy Lyle commented

This huge building is not in keeping with the rest of the neighbourhood in any way. This is an area of single and two storey homes that blend well together. This application is for a building that would stick out like a lighthouse and dominate the streetscape from every direction. It flaunts the R-codes in countless ways for scale, bulk and consideration to the feel of the neighbourhood. If Vincent approves this, one would have to ask what is the point of the R-codes, and what will come next? Three storey buildings throughout this residential area? Why stop there?
If the owners/developers of this land wanted to build a monument to themselves on this scale perhaps they should have bought land in one of the many places where this scale is appropriate, not a beautiful established low rise residential area.
