This tower will have residential apartments on the upper floors with a hotel and office space below.

The architects are Woods Bagot (Melbourne) and SHoP Architects (New York).

Woods Bagot are an historical and prestigious Adelaide architectural firm...not Melbourne.

Yes, gone national and international with studios everywhere but originally from and considered an Adelaide firm.

The near side in the last rendering looks different than in the prior ones.

This has been rejected, due to "Considerable design issues", by the Planning Minister

May see a re-design of the project

Yep. It was a shockingly terrible outcome from what is supposed to be a top-tier architectural firm.

What could have been if SHoP and their toilet shaped tower hadn't been chosen as the winner.

HASSELL in conjunction with UNStudio (one of the four shortlisted teams) concepts for 447 Collins street.

286m tower











The smaller 151m concept

I'm not sure I like any of the concepts. That last one was not my thing, but it is certainly something different from the norm.

I actually like the last one. The one before it just looks way too bottom-heavy and strange.

This site demands an Iconic building to enhance Melbourne's most famous skyline angle.

I don't mind if the building is short as long as it's a stunning design - much like the TV shaped proposal above which I love

The last one reminds me a bit of the Walkie Scorchie in London. Love it!

New proposal has height reduced to under 200m but it's a stunning design!

Now at around 165m so it should be removed from the skyscrapers sub forum to the highrises one.
