And where is everyone supposed to park? It’s absolute chaos at Newstead now!
Why would you drive, everyone lives there so they don’t have to drive and can walk to everything; that is the appeal of Newstead. If you are from a sprawled outer family focused suburb where you need to drive to everything, catch a taxi or a bus (city glider stops outside gasworks). Newstead doesn’t have a traditional concrete parking lot mall or spaced out amenities, it is a different lifestyle choice which focuses on small centralised living. If it was a parking lot that you wish for, you would not have all the wonderful resturants, bars, green areas, footpaths, or active community that appeals you to Newstead in the first place.
Mirvac generally have a good understanding of delivering quality, however, how they think a 25 storey building in that area of Newstead stacks up compared to the rest is a bit of ‘pie in the sky’ thinking.
Considering across the Road Newstead Series will be 4 x towers ranging between 11-14 storeys and immediately adjacent are buildings between 4-6 storeys.
