In Fairfield VIC on “Construct and use a five...” at 72A Station Street Fairfield VIC 3078:

Richard Stanaway commented

This development is very much out of character for the site. A 3 storey development which preserves some open space would be much more appropriate for the site (like the development on the other site of Station Street). A 5 storey structure would dominate and shade the immediate area and destroy its character.

Another aspect of the development which possibly hasn't been considered is a future grade separation replacing the existing level crossing next to the site. A 5 storey (even a 3 storey one) structure would make grade separation a very expensive and complex exercise. Allowance for this inevitable replacement should be considered in the design for the development.
