A-brain has posted an overhead of Aurora, which gives another shade of its beautiful glass.



Another core rise this week puts it at ~133m above ground. One more rise and the core reaches the halfway mark !!

Glenn's nice night shot shows the progress Aurora is making in overhauling its "neighbours of the north".

Much excitement in Melbourne (via Qantas743) over Mark Baljak's report, on UrbanMelbourne, that Multiplex staff have been seen on site at Queens Place. Demolition has recently been completed on the car park, whilst the shops at the western end of the site are close behind. Queens Place has been Melbourne's version of Sydney's Greenland Centre, with everything in place, yet nothing significant actually happening. A recalculation of QP heights have them as 251/250m, so they just squeeze into this category.

Now 270m RL (269.6m to be precise). Ground is roughly +20m. This is a big project.

To put Queens Place into perspective, the two towers will look 90% as tall as Eureka on the Melbourne skyline.

Hot on the heels of news of progress on Queens Place, db2 has posted a pic of a significant moment for the 270/211m 1st stage of West Side Place. The display suite was moved from the west end of the site to the eastern end some time ago, and now the towering support structure is being demolished. The way is now clear for the construction of Melbourne's Ritz Carlton, as the transformation of Spencer Street really gets under way. Premier Tower, one full block south of WSP, will be climbing at the same time.

A few years down the road this will be home to the tallest tower in the CBD, maybe up to 278m?
