I love it. Certainly is a good development.

I think that St Kilda is currently quite run down and hopefully this will help further boost the area. The NIMBY's unfortunately never want anything to change. They already had a minor victory with changes made to this development, but that just takes away from the architectural style it was going to display.

Its a shame that everything in this state now has a protest group associated with it. It just doesnt make sense.

I'd have been happy with another Beacon Cove there to be honest.

if anything too small and retail focused. there is already a supermarket and shopping street about 200m away on Acland Street. build more housing to support it locally and densify Melbourne a bit.

It looks like mostly parkland with a few 3 story buildings. Why are NIMBYs so hysterical over it?

There is NO reason not to build it now, the courts has given the green light to build.
Un-chain St Kilda can curl up and die, bunch of tools, the whole lot of them..:(

I'm all for it.

Dockside you're wrong. There is one reason not to build it. It's called the Global Financial Crisis. I think that's the main thing holding this one up at the moment.

The developer has the funds(so they say).
Un-Chain St Kilda up-seated the local council over this and tried to get the courts to deem the whole plaining process illegal, they lost but are still fighting it at a higher court......:eek:hno:
