Cheers. Thank you. It's a nice dense skyline - height aside.....

I like both. I can't really separate them.. I'd like to know which has the more construction activity just now though.

Be good to see a few more pics of Adelaide or Darwin in this thread too ?

Cool thread tho

They both have harbours and bridges. That's where any similarity stops I think. Sydney has a much more dense skyline. So it should.... it's a much larger city

Melbourne's CBD and Southbank would have more skyscraper construction than Sydney's CBD.... but there's major Sydney construction in suburbs like Green Square, Olympic Park, Parramatta as well as Barangaroo which is on one side of the CBD.... Sydney has multiple business districts with decent sized skylines too.

As of September this year there's a whopping 305 cranes across Sydney vs 128 for Melbourne:

Though Melbourne's building more high rise towers which cram in more apartments, than in Sydney so it isn't necessarily indicative of the total number of new apartments going up in both cities.

Good read. Also good to see 250 cranes across Brisbane....

According to a Westpac report there are 16000 apartments to be completed in melbourne over the next 24 months and 10,000 in Sydney.
http://www.theage.com.au/business/ba...18-gssb6q.html

Atm there are 44 towers over 90m UC in Melbourne(7 over 200m) which is more than ALL other capital cities in australia combined. Sydney has 15.

If you include the approved and proposed towers the figure for melbourne is a dizzy 186.

And according to this 82,000 new units are expected in Sydney over the next 2 years vs 81,000 for Melbourne. Not sure which is more accurate.

Sticking to government stats, ABS doesn't seem to break down new dwelling completions to cities (or maybe they do but they don't mention it in their publications), but NSW has its own stats. 20,600 'multi-unit' dwellings were completed in Sydney last financial year, with 18,800 in developments consisting of more than 10 units (which I think would likely be apartment developments from 3-5 storeys and above).

http://www.planning.nsw.gov.au/Resea...-Sydney-Region

The figure's expected to jump to 26,000 next year (http://www.propertyobserver.com.au/f...-research.html), and over the next 5 years 184,300 dwellings are forecast to be completed (http://www.abc.net.au/news/2016-11-1...g-boom/8039632).

Over the last few years NSW has also been consistently approving more apartments than VIC, but then approvals don't always translate to construction.

Does Victoria have its own stats for Melbourne?

Those higher figures could be including small unit subdivisions with 2 or 3 dwellings.

The next chart down mentions about 14300 for inner Melbourne over the next 24 months and 9300 for inner Sydney which is in line with the westpac report mentioned in The AGE article that i posted.

As to your last question... TBH i'm not sure

If that's the case then the Age article was a bit misleading, it should have mentioned that the figure includes only the inner cities. It isn't surprising since Melbourne's concentrating a lot of development in and around the CBD whilst Sydney's is spread more evenly across the metro. Either way there's a massive amount of construction going on in both cities, and Sydney's case it's ramping up even further.

I just thought you meant a skyline from the ocean.
"Oceanic" should be Oceanean if its meant to refer to Oceanea Continent
