I think it has now become ridiculous to be building apartments there. Despite it being on a main road, those cars will have to park on Burke Road (there is already limited parking due to the amount of apartments being built on the same section of the road), it will create a lot more congestion (as it is notorious it is one of the most congested roads in Melbourne), as the there is no regular public transport nearby, just one bus (the 548) and the tram (48), which in reality, most people do not elect to use, because of lack of tram lanes (and priority).
In this area, people will have to become car dependent and due to being near the eastern freeway, why wouldn't they? This is just unnecessary. Including that all the overshadowing it will have on Stradbroke park.
