The South Melbourne end of Southbank is being turned into a highly polluted wind tunnel with the building of 1000s of apartments in a condensed area.

There isn't enough council services now coping with garbage removal let alone adding 1000s more apartments.

The low rise end of Coventry should be left un-molested as it provides some respite from the claustrophobic feeling one gets from being surrounded by too many high rise.

The wind tunnel effect on Wells, Dorcas and Coventry is already a huge issue. Building more high rise will further exacerbate the problem.

There is no Australian demand for these home it is purely greed from developers aiming at foreign buyer market.

The market is already oversupplied and value of existing apartments in the same area has stagnated and gone backwards.

Building more apartments will add additional supply to a market that has no real demand.
