Yes, height limits remain strict, but not quite as stifling as they were from the early 1980s through to the early 2000s. Promontory in Vic West was a recent exception. For more than 40 years the Orchard House apartments was Victoria's tallest building, but Promontory finally ended its reign (even though Orchard House still has a higher floor count). Some pending projects will also be getting exceptions (the condo tower behind the HBC, Chard's tower on Yates Street, and the roundhouse project in Vic West).

The concept for the "Northern Junk" property across from the Janion was refined and quite excellent but the powers that be went crazy because it was a whopping five stories tall. There was a similar uproar about the customs house project.
