In Ivanhoe VIC on “Development of an apartment...” at 24 & 26 Lower Heidelberg Road, Ivanhoe, VIC:

Pat Brady commented

56 units, 4 storeys plus underground carpark, what a wonderful addition to Ivanhoe. It is high density living and high volume car movements every day.
The neighbours either side and to the rear of the property are very lucky to be able to share their lives with a variety of strangers and if Airbnb manages to provide guests for some of the 56 units over weekends I'm sure the neighbours will not only be delighted their quality of life and the amenity of Ivanhoe will be further enhanced.
The size of the building is neither in keeping with the locality nor the amenity of the area.
It will contribute to high traffic movements in an area where children are present on many days of the year. For neighbouring properties it is simply going to be the eyesore as it will take a persons eye every time you look in its direction.
It is simply a money making venture intended to bastardise a very pleasant and attractive area for the financial benefit of a few. Despite what the consultants are saying to Banyule Council the sheer size, height and amount of land covered by the building precludes it complimenting the locale nor will it contribute to the livability of Ivanhoe or the people who live and enjoy the suburb.
I ask Council to reject the plans as they are at present and suggest something more conservative and complimentary to Ivanhoe and the immediate area. This may be difficult for Council as it sees 56 rateable properties replacing the current two.
