If they mean to keep the commercial space I can't really see anywhere else the driveway could be located.
Victoria is a single lane one way incline, fire trucks frequently come up Ochterloney and turn up Victoria. Vehicles exiting the parkade will be inclined towards Victoria and be turning left to an upward grade and during busy periods will be forced to yield to traffic. There is an existing entrance which served a previous home, obviously the volume from this new development will be a significant change. That section is not a side street, it is part of the morning flow to the bridge and Burnside.
