Inner Western Courier Thursday Not Used Anymore : July 2 2008
INNER-WEST WEEKLY, Thursday, July 3, 2008 23 STREETVIEW Foundation of discontent Graeme Lyall Patricia Cummins Thomas Mittelheuser Mike Kim Olivia Nucifora Three high-rise apartment buildings up to 19-storeys high are set to be built next to Burwood railway station after the Land and Environment Court recently over-ruled the council. Burwood Mayor John Faker is outraged, believing they are inappropriate for the city centre. We camped outside the shopping centre across the road and asked passing pedestrians what they thought. Graeme Lyall, of Russell Lea: I certainly wouldn't like to live on a railway line. I think commercial would be much more suitable for the area. They need under- ground car parks to be part of the develop- ment as well. I wouldn't think it would be a great place to live. Patricia Cummins, of Croydon: It will mean there is no sun on this side of the road at all. Apart from that, I still don't think it's a good idea at all. It's not appropriate for the area, considering the size. It's overdeveloped and crowded as it is. The height is not appropriate either and I can't imagine people wanting to live that close to a train line. Thomas Mittelheuser, of Burwood: I don't think there sounds like there's any- thing negative about it. Better being resi- dential, the area needs it. I live in a semi- detached near here. I'd definitely live there. It would be convenient so close to the train and an intelligent and economical use of space. Mike Kim, of Croydon: I think it's a bad idea because it will cause more traffic. It's especially bad for children. It will be very dangerous for them. I don't have any idea what else they could do with the space. The extra traffic congestion won't be good for people living there either. Olivia Nucifora, of Strathfield: It's on the railway line so no doubt will be sound- proofed, but I wouldn't live there. If it was commercial that would be better than residential. It gets too congested around here, there is too much traffic already. There are too many apartments as well. They should stop building them.
