Current core height is level 55 or 158m. Final core height is about 280m so 120m or 40 floors, inc LMR, to go. Cycles of 4 days should be achievable on the top half. Iím going to be as bold to say top out of the core by end Nov with jumpform removed by end of year.

A-brain,
I was more referring to the big, long blank wall covered in various degrees of pattern and colour all along Latrobe. The shopping centre more so than the tower. Itís a big, inactivated mess. Open that up to the street so it looks like the shopping centre faces Latrobe rather than is turning itís back on it and it would be amazing. I think itís only a matter of time before a redevelopment of that side happens, though, with the entrance to the Metro opening up opposite it.

Sorry, but improvement, or otherwise, the base of the office tower is seriously dated now and looks shabby and second-rate from Elizabeth Street tram stop. The glass canopy is lined with some sort of plastic film that is peeling off, for example. It is ripe for an overhaul. Personally Iíd love to see the glass turned into some sort of digital screen installation..... it could be spectacular from street level and an amazing entrance to the office tower.

He only referred to the core topping out - which you already had.
Given ~4 day cycles seen to date, that should be no problem. Having the floor slabs top out might require some luck with weather and cycles - averaging more than 1 per week, every week - and no last-minute damper-tank (Ala ViC_ONE)... Good going PB.

I know mate I was just trying to poke a little fun at _marks comment since as you said I’d already said it and I thought he was being a little cheeky in his comment saying 'bold prediction' since we all agree they should walk it in finishing the core this year - all good :-)

As for Vic One no wonder it’s slowed to a crawl at the top ! I don’t recall seeing damper tanks on any of the Aurora plans but then I’m sure the guys would have taken this into account - especially now with the Vic One issue.

Garnett - I actually 100% agree with you the LaTrobe St frontage is a shocker in fact I’ll go as far to say the whole La Trobe St side of the complex is worse since the renovation raising the floor of the area under the cone to add more retail space destroyed the grandeur it had in the Daimaru days. The Lonsdale St side on the other hand is a huge improvement on the original with all the open air and light they brought it.

Let’s hope with Aurora & new Station entrance next door going up it might prompt the MC owners to open up the La Trobe St frontage when next major renno happens.

Anyway one spot it definitely is perfectly positioned to stand out is the classic Melbourne Uni Swanston St view which has been dominated by MC Tower since ‘91 (coincidentally when I started Uni there same year so I remember it well) ...



Excuse the rather hurried car photo but you get the idea - it will all but completely take our MC from that angle and will look mighty !

CBD - North > Aurora Melbourne Central - 224-252 La Trobe St > 270m / 84L / residential / u.c

Another milestone yesterday with latest screen rise the Service Level 32A has been exposed ...





Bit hard to see from these gloomy day pics but thereís a whole row of windows missing where they will indent .. and the windows that are there are different width than the rest with some vent sections as well.

Hereís a couple of cheeky peek-a-boo angles from around Lonsdale St ...




Once again outstanding work from PB / I&D this week floor pours and a core rise in the first 2 days back at work and despite the rain sees the core now at Level 57 or 160m and floors at Level 40 or 115m ..

I'd say it would be pretty close. Melbourne Central tip is 211m. Level 66 should be around 220m

Level 66 will be 185-191m above ground (itís a double height level) which roughly equates to the bottom of Melbourne Centrals Batman triangle roof ..

Meanwhile ... Service Level 32A is now fully exposed ....





For those playing along Level 32A is around 90m above ground so the building is literally split into thirds ie. 9-18-27 .. !!

Service levels are for plant. Electrical boards, mechanical plants etc etc. pool plant if one is about. Very typical for buildings this size. If you look closely you can see louvres on the facades of tall buildings, these are plant levels. Melbourne Central has one on 33 from memory.
