A Head For Heights

West End has been earmarked by the council for a massive development plan.

It's an amazing inner-city oasis full of interesting people from all over the world. It is vibrant, friendly, creative and has a village atmosphere where people stop and chat on the street. It is not the development itself but the enormous scale of the plan - with buildings up to 30 storeys high - that had people protesting on the streets on Saturday.

Read about it, fight the towers (and the powers) here.

That sounds like something Sydney would do, take an aread which atmosphere, charm and history and develop all the life out of it.

Ann has taken the words out of my mouth! It has Sydney written all over it. What IS going on up there?

First Jac Stac, now Tower Power ...

Nice find. I can understand why they would protest against that.
