In Redfern NSW on “13-23 Gibbons Street,...” at 13-23 Gibbons Street, Redfern,:

Kelly O'Brien commented

I have concerns relating to the following:

- The dormitory rooms planned for the podium mean high density bedrooms looking directly into our properties at 1 Margaret st
- The podium height is higher than planning standards
- There is already another property at 80-88 regent st being assesed for student housing in addition to the newly completed Iglu at 66 regent st. This is already a huge increase in student housing within a very small area. I agree with Donald Glover's comment that the impact of current plans should be measured before any more are approved.
- The planning documents show the Podium on Margaret st side being up to the boundary. Does this mean the building will be even closer to 1 Margaret st than the current building
- This seems to be premium priced student accommodation. How does this address housing affordability in inner sydney?
- what measures are in place to minimise disruption and noise for the residents in 1 margaret st?
- what measures can be made to allow sunlight for the residents at 1 margaret st? Is something like the heliostat at central park chippendale feasible? Based on the plans it seems we will have a significant decrease in light into our building.
- how will additional parking requirements be met?
- the laneway seems to be only optional at this stage, will there be an increase to the building size if the laneway is not approved?
- overall it seems to be a very large building proposed for a small site.
