Great design and it will likely dominate the skyline when seen from the Docklands.

Should be very visible in the stands of the docklands stadium too (if the roof is open) because you can just see the tops of the Upper West Side development (glassy buildings to the left of that first render) from the upper seats of the stadium if you're on the west side.

It seems like Melbourne's M.O. lately has been to build stunning towers on top of uninspired podiums. This tower furthers that trend.

Podiums are common in Melbourne and presumably always will be. The Melbourne City Council really don't like towers that aren't set-back from the street.

That and the fact that some of the main areas for development (Southbank, Fishermans Bend) have podiums as basements are not viable there.

There are decent podium designs in Melbourne that integrate well into the street, and I disagree with you as I think this is one of the better ones. Take a look at Prima Tower for an example of a properly bad tower podium in Melbourne.

If this is one of the better ones you kind of just proved my point.
