[CAN] Re: 51-57 Hutt Street | ~40m | 12 Levels | Mixed

Heritage or not those sorts of small dwellings don't belong in or around a CBD. They are limited to what can be done with them.

News & Discussion: CBD Retail

I think we just have a situation where the city population is slowly growing. When certain areas without a corner shop hit critical mass then more convenient store/IGAs will appear.

Supply and demand.

Maybe coincidence but driving past tonight it appeared the majority of shops in this block are vacant.

A sign of imminent action?

Interesting article from In Daily on the renewable energy debate http://indaily.com.au/opinion/2016/07/25/you-cant-half-bake-the-renewable-energy-revolution/ Would need a highly motivated politician to enact the necessary changes. There's just so many vested interests in dirty energy, from big comp...
