In Brunswick East VIC on “Demolition of existing...” at 495-497 Lygon Street, Brunswick East VIC 3057:

Kate R commented

The development of a 10 storey building would have a terrible impact on this part of Lygon Street. As it stands, there is a lack of parking now, not to mention traffic nightmares. A building this high would dwarf everything around it, especially specialised stores and the traders in the area who have already suffered during Covid.
Also the lack of light to residents who live near by. I have friends who live in Moonee Ponds and residents have suffered greatly by the new high rise apartments that have been squeezed into streets behind the main shopping strip.
Brunswick East is considered an artsy, eclectic area known for its individuality , a building of this size would take this away reputation.
