In Northcote VIC on “A mixed-use development...” at Building 25 Separation Street Northcote VIC 3070:

Katherine Palella commented

I don't even know where to start with this? 29 stories? While I understand higher density living is necessary, this is extreme and out of character for the area. This density seems to reek of another another middle class slum of barely liveable apartments masquerading as a "community hub". Is there an appropriate infrastructure plan for roads and transport to keep up with this? Doubtful.

Heavily reduced parking will not stop people from owning cars, instead it will force car owners in apartments to park on streets, reducing movement of visitors to the shopping centres and aid in a revenue raising activity for the council. This is 100% an example of punishing citizens for the benefit of developers and corporations under the guise of a green initiative that hobbles areas like this with hostile living conditions
