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

Lita Kurbanovs commented

We do not want this size of development in this area. This in not within keeping if the streetscape at this end of Lygon St.

We also believes that it contravenes the 5 storey limit for residential zoning. This will also obstruct the city skyline for many existing residents in this area.
There is already an over development in this area. Other developments currently in progress are not if this magnitude and will impact on:
1. overcrowding on public transport
2. Impact in limited street parking in this vacinity
3. More commercial spaces on street level remaining empty due to overcrowding/competition of similar business eg: gyms/supermarkets/ hairdressers. We have too many in this strip & consequently potential retailers/businesses have pulled out of contracts leaving empty shops for years.

We would like to have our area not become a ghetto.
