In Marrickville NSW on “To demolish existing...” at 315-317 Illawarra Road Marrickville NSW 2204:

George P commented

I will agree with Mr Scott MacArthur below. While not opposing at all the development of more units in central Marrickville, we need to be careful with our choices. The particular lot of old houses are best to be restored and used as food and coffee places (as some are already) that enhance and add to the character of Marrickville. Too many grey, generic buildings are already built with no reference or respect to Marrickville’s unique individual character of its people and surroundings. Instead of taking down unattractive, run down buildings and replacing them with unique, colourful and friendly designed units, we opt to create more generic boxes of grey and demolish charming, historical dwellings. This makes very little sense for Illawarra Road and will end up looking like Canterbury road instead
