In Rozelle NSW on “Demolition of existing...” at 731-735 Darling Street Rozelle NSW 2039:

Ben Rushton commented

I object to this development based on the design drawings submitted. The proposed development is massively out of scale with the gracious building presently at that location. The use of brutal concrete and gun metal grey aluminium materials rising from behind this quaint and pretty Victorian Darling St facade, is as opposite as anyone could get from keeping with the heritage stylings of the present structure. Nor does this proposal in any way complement the present building. The proposed new structure at Cambridge St side would dwarf the present building to the extent that it would become an odd adjunct when it should in actual fact be the "hero" of the site. Materials used for any additions to the present structure should enhance, not detract from the present building. The plans submitted for this development would indeed be a gross detraction for that end of Darling St.
