I agree with the previous comments posted to date. This is another example of short term profit wrecking long term heritage values.
Having removed the significant stand of pines, a landmark on the ridge line, that were along the boundary of this property, this site and the streetscape will be ruined by high density housing. Apart from expected issues with traffic it is highly likely the architecture of what is built will be unsympathetic to the streetscape. High density housing will reduce space for gardens and street plantings thereby adversely affecting local microclimates.
A fast track application and it's attendant lack of publicity after the block has been vacant for so long seems odd.
