Demolition of the existing building on the site has recently finished. I also read somewhere that the city of Melbourne approved a height increase of 225m to 235m. They're now preparing the site for construction as we speak.

First post on this forum I can see the construction site from my office - they have started drilling deep a few days ago. This will be for what I assume the foundation of the building? As you may gather - I'm no specialist! See picture...

Of all the cities, Melbourne has the most 'international' feeling from what I think. Its modern like Shanghai but it retains its culture like many european cities. A lot of other Australian cities lack these two elements. They look like smaller versions of American cities.
