Better renders have just been posted of what will surely become one of Melbourne's landmark buildings: 88 levels or 268 metres (879 feet) of curvaceous glass. 224-252 La Trobe Street is a 3197 square metre site (34412 sq. feet); the Malaysian developer is UEM Sunrise and architects are Melbourne's current hottest, Elenberg Fraser. Thank you to UrbanMelbourne and melburn21 of SkyscraperCity.

PROJECT SUMMARY

88 levels & 267.15 metres in height
1139 apartments & 204 serviced apartments, total 1343 dwellings
Total Gross Floor Area 123,226 sqm
364 car spaces within the 8 level above ground podium & 786 bicycle spaces
3037 sqm of retail area and 3048 sqm of office space
three dedicated common areas with no less than four pools on one level
NEW CONNECTION TO MELBOURNE CENTRAL STATION

The planning application seeks to relocate the existing Melbourne Central Station entrance from La Trobe Street to the north east corner of the site which fronts Little La Trobe Street. In doing this, Basement level 2 retail exposure is maximised, acting as a new pedestrian thoroughfare which will join with Melbourne Central's lower ground food court and station entry. The food and drink options 224-252 La Trobe Street's Basement 2 will be arranged in a hawker market theme.

The new home of the AIA (Australian Institute of Architects) opened in March. Dwarfed by many of its of neighbours, the AIA (21 levels/90 metres/295 feet) still manages to get noticed. Images by Ryan Seychell of UrbanMelboure, apart from one by SYDNEY.

Yes, we are excited too! There has been progress with another nearby proposal, 450/452 Elizabeth Street, as reported by Grollo:

The City of Melbourne report for 452 Elizabeth Street states that The Minister for Planning approved an amendment to this development that
increased the height of the building to 67 storeys on 7 February 2014.

The tower will now be 218m (715 feet) high.

melburn21 reported on April 10th that the building has been named Light House Melbourne.

http://www.lighthousemelbourne.com.au
http://www.skyscrapercity.com/showth...1464242&page=6

Another report:

Elenberg Fraser’s tallest building will add a twisting kaleidoscope that seems to defy the laws of physics to the North edge of the city.
Appearing to turn on its trajectory, the building has no corners. How do you dissolve the corners of a skyscraper when that is where all sheer forces are normally resolved? Well, we discovered the answer lies in traditional masonry techniques for turning corners using bricks.
This three-dimensional kaleidoscope not only twists and undulates on its axis but its façade is a moving object. The effect of constant motion is amplified by the multi-chromic directional paint system applied to the surface, which reflects and draws the building up into the sky. You may have seen this paint effect on cars before, but never on a building!
This supermodel of a building also needed to battle the slenderness ratio – the rule that governs how tall and thin buildings can go. It overcomes this constraint by virtually becoming a vertical cantilever with a series of outrigger beams to prevent it from overturning, and to stop it rotating along with the façade system. The series of rotational units are a series of bay windows for the apartments, which pick out different vistas of city as the façade crinkles.

Just down the road from Light House Melbourne is Empire Melbourne, at 398 Elizabeth Street: 55 levels and 177 metres (581 feet). Posted by Mark Baljak of UrbanMelbourne:

MARK BALJAK WROTE ON THU, 10/04/2014 - 08:30
AFR

LARRY SCHLESINGER

>>Mammoth Empire director Joseph Ooi told The Australian Financial Review its interests remained firmly focused on Melbourne, with MY80 and its next project, Empire, its only forays to date outside its Malaysian home base, where it has a dozen mixed-use projects under development.

“We are always looking for prime CBD sites in Melbourne to further our portfolio in the Australian sector,” Mr Ooi said.

Explaining the preference for *Melbourne over other capital cities such as Sydney that have attracted *offshore developers, Mr Ooi said the city appealed because it is a “multi*cultural city, attractive to the Asian market for education, lifestyle, liveability and style”.

“Developers see Melbourne as a prime location to house the influx of people from Asia who wish to invest in this country,” he said. He praised *Melbourne’s status as the world’s most liveable city, and the CBD’s accessibility compared to other cities around the world.

>>Later this month, Mammoth will begin marketing its second Melbourne high-rise development, Empire, directly across from MY80 at 398 Elizabeth Street. The $250 million project will rise to 55 storeys, with 465 apartments. It is Mammoth’s second collaboration with Melbourne architects Hayball and property developer PDS Group.

Mr Ooi said offshore buyers accounted for about 40 per cent of sales.

“We feel this is the right mix. Maintaining funding through local banks is our preferred approach so long as the local banks support and increase their thresholds and acceptance of foreign purchaser sales,” he said.

But, he cautioned, any changes to Foreign Investment Review Board rules, which allow up to 100 per cent of approved apartment projects to be sold offshore, would affect its involvement in Australia.

FIRB rules will soon be reviewed by a House of Representatives Standing Committee on Economics, chaired by Victorian Liberal MP Kelly O’Dwyer.

>> Another challenge facing Asian developers is the high cost of construction. “Melbourne construction costs are significantly higher than those in Malaysia. This is largely due to the cost of labour,” Mr Ooi said.

“However, Melbourne’s construction productivity, even with the limited work hours, is considerably higher than in Malaysia where they are able to work six days a week, 24 hours a day,” he said.

Approval for the Empire project was granted by Victorian planning minister Matthew Guy in March, and construction is expected to start in October.

>>>>>>> just on construction costs - they may be high but so are the purchase prices otherwise there'd be no influx of asian developers looking to cash in

A giant mural by Rone now decorates a wall on the 80 Collins Street office proposal site. This long mooted project is still looking for pre-commitments, before getting under way. Report posted by melburn21.

Giant mural unveiled in Melbourne

https://au.news.yahoo.com/a/22226254...-in-melbourne/

Melbourne's street art reputation has reached new heights with the unveiling of what is believed to be Australia's biggest mural.

The large-scale portrait, measuring 35-metres in height, is being painted by world renowned artist Rone.

Rone has spent almost ten hours a day for the past four days, perched on a cherry picker transforming the outside wall of the Collins Street building.

The artist, who has works featured in cities across the globe, claims it is one of his biggest street art projects yet.

Months in planning, Rone said the opportunity to create a Melbourne landmark is an incredibly rewarding experience for an artist.

"Melbourne's street art is up there with some of the best in the world," he said.

"We are just starting to embrace these colossal size works that exist in many European cities, and in the next few years works this size e mat become a common sight."

His muse is 20-year-old Byron Bay model Teresa Omen and the work is titled L'innconnue de la Rue, which translates as 'Unknown Girl in the Street'.

In the last 12 months, Rone has been invited to paint sites in Hong Kong, Berlin, London, Miami, Mexico, Portland, Hawaii, New Zealand, and closer to home in Sydney, Brisbane, Adelaide and now Melbourne.

The mammoth mural will take Rone until Sunday to complete.

What do you think of the mural?

One of Melbourne's huge Myer department stores has been gutted and rebuilt behind the heritage facade as Emporium; a mall with 225 shops. About two-thirds of the shops were ready for opening day on April 16th, bringing brands like Uniqlo and Muji to Australia for the first time.

North Wharf, the last of Melbourne's old goods sheds on the Yarra river, is going to be transformed into a mix of public and commercial spaces, backed by a 13 level office building. The existing riverside promenade on the north bank is being extended to link Docklands to the City. Details by Mark Baljak of UrbanMelbourne, courtesy of the site developer, Asset1.
https://urbanmelbourne.info/developm...ew-urban-space

Preliminary work is under way, principally on the riverside promenade, with the red roof of the old Mission to Seafarers in the foreground.

Asset 1 is commencing a new wave of revitalization and refurbishment for their North Bank Precinct. As Landlord of the largest expanse of Yarra River fronting property, these plans will see a gust of fresh air blown into this significant Melbourne precinct. Plans are underway to create a vibrant new cultural and trade hub across the 11.7 acres of Asset 1 domain, including the World Trade, North Wharf and other key areas of the precinct.

Working collaboratively Cox architects, master-planners and under the supervision of Cox Principal, Patrick Ness, Asset 1 will look to implement a five year vision for this dynamic new expansion. This will include a trade square, trade hub, a cultural precinct, a retail precinct and a green boulevard. The development of North Wharf will also be undertaken and this will flow onto The Jim Stynes Bridge; giving complete connectivity to the prime Yarra River real estate.

This week, Planning Minister Matthew Guy granted a panning permit for North Wharf, anchored by a new 13 story office tower, comprising 33,427 square meters of office space, at 731 – 739 Flinders Street, Docklands. The North Wharf project will also include commercial office towers, the restoration of the historic old Mission to Seafarers and the Seafarers Rest Park, while introducing, retail, cafes and an art gallery. The historic crane will remain.The $90 million development of the North Wharf is the last piece of undeveloped land and is a lynch pin between Melbourne’s CBD, Docklands and the Yarra River.
Posted August, 2013.

The adjacent upstream site is occupied by Flinders Wharf, an apartment development. Opposite, on the south bank of the river is the Melbourne Convention Centre, Hilton South Wharf, restaurants contained in old goods sheds and low rise office towers. Just down stream is one of Melbourne's most interesting pedestrian thoroughfares, Webb Bridge, with a design inspired by Aboriginal fish traps.

Latest plans for 70 Southbank Boulevard are for a 99 storey tower with a height of 319 metres (1,047 feet) and 1,060 apartments. Earlier proposals for a 388 metres tower have been scaled back because of aircraft flight path restrictions.
