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

Stephen Farquhar commented

I am frequently in this area and any development above 4 stories is completely out of character with the surrounds. Furthermore, this development will remain empty for years in a post-Covid environment. We have no immigration driving property demand. There are over 8000 vacancies in Brunswick (quick search shows that). Shops and restaurants will struggle so the ground floor tenancies of this development will sit vacant for years.
Lastly, what does this development do that is positive for the community, the surrounding streetscape, and the environment? - It fails on all fronts.
