The shadowing diagram is wildly inaccurate if the think that wicks park will only have several metres of shade form a 14 storey tower this is grossly inaccurate , at 49 meter tall building will throw at least 50m of shadow or more in mid winter with the zenith of the sun, most of wicks park and the trees will be heavily shadowed from May though to July making it cold and unwelcoming , also the Tennis courts will be heavily shadowed.
There is no justification for 14 storeys other than investor returns, large buildings as such will disrupt local community and impact local traffic, yes its close to the railway but tenants and the few owners will still have cars, look at Wolli Creek as an example of how over-development has destroyed any sense of community. if this was a smaller block below 8 storeys with more 3 bedroom apartments it would invite families as owner occupiers thats what any community values higher than transient rental apartments
