Will do. Funnily enough modelling the new design which appears to be somewhat simpler isn't proving to be all that simple. I've got the form done it's just the balconies and recesses which are proving to be more difficult than I had anticipated. Come the Easter break I should have it done though. Until then here's an undetailed render of my progress I did in Rhino:

Possible height increase

From the Vic forum:

Yes, I was just taking the 200m figure used (loosely obviously) on some posts on the Toronto forum, and that's why I added "or so" (i.e. 200m didn't really make sense to me either) Anyway, looking forward to hearing its height: the renders look great and it will be a big addition to mid-town of the big To.

On point also of the discussion, that Dubai and China are now dwarfing almost everything, I say we established, fully-formed cities have to cheer each other on - of course falling out at argue which has the better, as frequently as possible.

Brisbane is going to be the place to watch down here over the next few years, btw.

Nice, it sort of looks similar to Eureka Tower? Nice though, would look good on the skyline!

Below are a selection of photoshopped renders Archibomber has done on the Melbourne forum this year showing Prima in place among Melbourne's Southbank talls.

However the wait for a start on this one, initally approved in late 2002, has tested everyone's patience. Design changes were approved late last year with a slight increase in height, with the private developer speaking then of a possible start this year. No sign of that yet. Melbourne may now get a couple of other 200m+ talls, on the CUB site and at the old Spencer Street power station in ahead of it, but people are still very keen on this one on the basis of its location and design.

here's Archibombers worked images. The bottom three are photoshopped into Southbank photos taken prior to Eureka's completion.

Latest news is that the owner of the site, Tony Schiavello has bought the rights to use the Trump name for the tower, so it may end up being called Trump Tower Melbourne.

WITH luxury apartments in Melbourne regularly selling for more than $5 million, is it any wonder the city could be the site of the next Trump Tower?

Sources say a development site owner has secured rights to use the Trump Tower brand for a site near the Crown Casino in Southbank.

Though the most famous Trump Tower sits on the East River in Manhattan, there are others in the United States that all share similar qualities of up to five-metre ceilings, extraordinary room proportions, private spas, health clubs, valet parking and around-the-clock concierges.

A licence to use the brand is available, sources say.

All eyes have turned to the Southbank site, owned by interior office designer Tony Schiavello, immediately west of Australand's Freshwater Place.

In 2002, Mr Schiavello lodged plans for the 225-metre, 60-level, Prima on Southbank apartment tower, and in 2004, beat the State Government to retain the controversial permit, which would make it Melbourne's second-biggest building.

Marketing, however, never began, and sources said the project was to be temporarily shelved until next year.

Mr Schiavello was not available when Capital Gain tried to contact him.
