I have to agree with Marion, "to big, to high and overcrowded". And East Brunswick Village? please, to call this development a village is to misuse the word.

When will enough be enough? When is council going to listen to residents ?
The developers are pillaging our suburb. Fly in, build a shoddy block of units, take the money & run, while we residents are left with an overcrowded, overdeveloped suburb.

It seems like this has all gone through and been approved anyway (September 2017?) so not much can be done. This was a large site, one of the few remaining large development sites in the suburb. That we ended up plonking 10 apartment blocks on it is a gross waste of an opportunity to do something special.

Rant Finished :)
