The point about height samsonyuen is not only ANZ's river location and shadowing, but it's the biggest example here of the trend towards "green" environment friendly campus-style office buildings, and this one will set new standards of amenity for office workers inside - big green open spaces and common areas inside etc.

Apparently some studies have shown that productivity rises quite a lot in these conditions too.

Australia operates within a market economy, developments like this will not go ahead unless there is demand, or at the least if a developer believes that there is demand. So in short yes, Melbourne can support this.

Here's the website for the whole area, it's subdivided into smaller plots that developers have bought up, then they start trying to sell their land to clients to build stuff on.

The Docklands website is so out of date. Also this is now under construction so title needs to be changed.

Sorry but I don't understand the question. Do you mean 'what will fill it'? If that's the case then the answer is all the ANZ personal coming from other locations across the city. ANZ will fill out at least two thirds of the building and the rest shouldn't be very difficult to fill in the current office space climate, not to mention future ANZ expansion.

Cheers

That's the old masterplan ARM did. It will look completely different to that.

The Melbourne Docklands Development is probably one of the best urban redevelopment schemes I have ever seen, you certainly beat us in Sydney when it comes to urban regeneration. The new ANZ World HQ looks nice although I would have preferred a high rise in the city center, still it is a good development for Melbourne.
