This is going to lead to overcrowding in a street with a very limited amount of parking. Further, over-developing the Merlynston village precinct with tall apartment/townhouse buildings that do not fit the quaint village vibe is a mistake. This shopping strip and park surrounded by streets of character-filled period houses is a gem of the north, and should be protected and nurtured. Enhancing character will ultimately improve the success of this pocket and shopping strip, rather than packing in ill-fitting apartment buildings. Were St in Montmorency is a good example of a shopping strip which has prioritised character and avoided inappropriate development, and it is now a popular destination for this very reason.
