What is in it for the existing residents? The addition of all these apartments clogs the trains, trams and roads.
It also add more people into the parks, schools, etc.
Suggest 10- 20 percent of the construction cost is paid to provide additional capacity on existing infrastructure. Eg new pedestrian path bridge between Hartwell and Burwood, widening /upgrading paths / lighting / new park facilities / upgrades to rail stations and surrounds / new road furniture - calming / crossings / replanting of mature saplings...are just some thoughts.
The buildings must not create landmarks. These beasts are affecting people further away than adjacent properties. They are not adequately informing people from futher away that they will be affected. The 25 Trent street development is visible from HIGH STREET!
The heights should be minimised using more expensive infrastructure - hydraulic lifts that do not need machine rooms on the roof.
They need to provide car parking according to planning regs. The reality is we will not be getting any better train or tram services on the Alamein line.
