Unbelievable, try living in this area once all these skycrappers have been built. Parking will be horrendous and also the traffice which is also a nightmare in the morning to get onto the freeway will be even worse. This has to stop, and now.

I would be interested for the council to consider guiding more on the design elements that contribute to a livable environment in south Perth. I would love to see guidelines for developers to the minimum requirements for parking, garden/greenery, incorporated retail, public space, environmental energy ratings. Imagine the creative designers that would be attracted to develop and enrich South Perth?
