Prestige Development or Future Slum at Jamison?

By ArandaBill 9 March 2011 63

Does 250 one bedroom apartments, 67 two bedroom apartments and only five three bedroom apartments  on the site of the old Jamison Inn sound like a presteige development for Jamison to you?

To me it sounds like a future management headache for the community and the unlucky body corporate to bear.

Parking at Jamison will be a nightmare, much worse than it is at the moment.

Meantime the developer who has also quietly acquired the two adjoining blocks from the ACT Government has banked the profits leaving the community to pick up the social costs of such unbalanced developments. We have seen it all before too often across Canberra to be surprised.

What’s Your opinion?

Apartments of this sort, help increase prices of decent houses that lower income families are struggling and failing to afford. Yep, well done, lets all be single , and have no future generations…….and all live in single bedroom boxes. Can’t wait for our future…..we will all have a pigeon hole or something to sleep in. I’m joking, but kind of not….

Pretty old post, but since the rate of astroturfing is seeing the old threads being dragged up…

Adding to the housing supply does NOT result in increased prices. That is all.

60m2 isn’t that small for a single bedroom apartment. Look at New Acton Nishi, it’s only 44m2. Get some knowledge first before criticizing …thanks…
