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

Emeritus Professor Alexander Grishin AM commented

This is a case of extreme over-development and should be rejected on three grounds.
1) 10 storeys is much too high, against existing regulations and destroys the neighbourhood character.
2) No matter how much sugar coating is applied, it will be an eye sore, cast a shadow on the neighbouring properties and block the view of all in the area.
3) This over-development is too much for the area to cope with - it is already congested, public transport and parking are over extended. Surely the time has arrived to speak of quality of life, safety and security and to say no to over-exploitation and greed. Should it be approved, then we should discuss regime change in this council.
