Respective governments have had it easy infrastructure-wise whilst the CBD just fills up. It's time they started investing in better PT connections to and between CBD fringe areas to make the Ardens, FB's, Cremornes etc more appealing to businesses without having to battle traffic. It's insanity that it's as quick for me to get from Richmond to the Western Ring Road / Westgate interchange by car in peak hour as it is the short distance from Richmond to the CBD.
Lack of land gave birth to skyscrapers.

We haven't built a 300 metre office tower in Melbourne yet so the lack of development space line is bs. When you run out of "space" you build up.

We are only running out of space for campus style buildings which are a luxury IMHO.

We have plenty of air above Southbank, Docklands and the CBD.

You could demolish the low rise shopping centre next to Southern Cross and build three 250metre plus office towers that would not overshadow the Yarra.

The short stepped twin cylinders in the front are part of the redevelopment of Queen Vic market. The tallest tower on the right, behind the you are here sign, is one of the Queens Place twins. The third building to the left of Queens is Paradigm.

There are currently 8 buildings under construction in Melbourne which are taller (roof height) than the current tallest building in Sydney (World Tower 230m).

Crown Sydney (271m), CQ (263m) and 505 George (262m) will uplift Sydney's skyline.

Both towns different and cool in their own way.
