Rodney Scherer commented

This DA is full of smoke and mirrors. the devil is in the detail. A. the sound impact assessment is only on the sound coming into the building NOT on the sound that will be coming FROM the building. The Shadow projections Stop at 15:00hrs or 3:00 pm just when it will fall on the residential apartment opposite WHY? It states it is a "LIFESTYLE' hotel. There is no Reception there is no parking because it is a "Lifestyle" The Rooftop terrace is an entertainment area which has noise impacts on the local community. Residents opposite already suffer from the Parties noise of Lifestyle tourist that occurs in the Hollywood Avenue Precinct. Anyone who says it won't is sticking their heads in the sand. Now the truth This development is to provide accommodation for the international Students who attend any of the 9 English Certificate schools in the Bondi Junction area. The developer is IGLOO and simple search on the net will show what this really is. POD accommodation 198 of them which can accommodate up to 2 people. Double your numbers and we are looking at a possible 396 people! all piled into a street frontage of about 40metres adjacent to the parking entry and exit point of Westfield shopping centre. Think international student walking with Mobile phone in hand, pedestrian meets car driving screaming to beat the lights. What are they creating?
