iron monkey the pollution would be worse if they build it in parramatta....in the morning the pollution in sydney get created then by noon it moves to liverpool parramatta, cambelltown then in the afternoon and evening it moves to blacktown,Penrith and the hawksbury. if you built it in parramatta there would be air pollution in the entire cbd for the entire day/night .

I dont get what you are saying. How would there be less pollution in the entire CBD if Sydney is the choice?

The pollution we are talking about comes from roads, not CBDs. If you invest in Parramatta, then generally people would drive less than otherwise, leading to less pollution and more productivity. Its very simple.

I never implied that. I based my opinion on the very simple fact that parramatta is in the middle of Sydney metro area and that Sydney's growth is in the west thus Parramattta should be upgraded to service that growth.

ive reread your post, still dont understand what you are trying to say.

I totally agree with you 100%.

Sydney just can't keep selling the harbour, the bridge and the Opera House to the world forever.

being only 5km from a major airport doesnt help thus the 330m height limit imposed by CASA. Is Sydney airport the closest major airport in the world to a major city? maybe it should of been built at woop woop like Tullarmarine?

I know I have said this 100 times but...

Aviation Authorities in other nations don't seem to have a problem with tall buildings, In Vegas for example - the 40 floor Mandalay Bay is built opposite the airport and the Stratosphere (taller than Sydney Tower is not that far down the strip. If a 40 floor tower can exist right on an airport there is IMO no reason why we can't have taller buildings in the CBD - it is just another example of Australia's love of overregulation and stagnation.

Think of Hong Kong and the old airport in Kowloon (Kai Tak)... it wasn't as if it was a great distance from Wanchai, Mongkok or TST.

CASA has no excuse for imposing limits on Sydney's CBD - Contrary to popular belief, pilots are trained to avoid buildings.

"...net absorption for the market is expected to have been excess of new supply."

The words are English but the meaning is at best, obscure and elusive!
Is there a special school where people learn this dialect of English or do you just have to be not quite bright enough combined with an inflated sense of your own intellect?

ive changed tite of thread to property market. I think it would be good to have a thread where we can post articles on Sydney's property market. keeps us updated in latest figures ect.
Dis anyone see today s fin review? Theres was an article on the SALE OF CHIFLEY TOWER. Anyone got $750 mil? They also said that the 1980's property markets are only now being reached. Chifley hasnt made much money if you want to purchase it.

yes i read it in the afr today. they say it is worth $750million to day which would be the largest sale in australia at around that price . but the owners have spent up to
$1billion on it or more . so far there is one buyer for it
singapore investment corporation( sic ) they think sic have made direct approaches to them . or though any deal will likely involve more than one buyer at this price the
owner is matsushita investment and development corp who sold the ana hotel three months ago on the gold coast to rapits group
