Crystal ball gazing: City of Moreland

When you mention Brunswick to anyone who's from the other side of the Yarra you're quite likely to get a rendition of the Franco Cozzo ad, a massive expletive-ladden anti-hipster tirade or hushed jibes about lefties. However we need to question how long those stereotypes will last. Urban Melbourne labelled Lygon Street in Brunswick East a development hotspot in August 2013 and the picture today is dramatically different. Not that Lygon Street is...
