I only posted them in response to the couple of comments about Melbourne's "strange" taste in architecture; I just wanted to make the point that Melbourne embraces "edgy" sometimes. Perhaps I was being a little defensive...

Two recent shots of Abode 318 apartments by GlennWilson. Western views are preserved because Abode is opposite the State Library complex.

Eporo Tower (44 levels/150 metres/492 feet) has sold 259 apartments out of 307, so construction should begin soon. The apartment tower sits on a 12 storey "jewel box" podium, which will contain worship and office space for the Coptic Church of Australia. Six large stained glass windows are features of the podium. An interesting footnote is that the site was occupied by a gay sauna until 2008.

Some more renders of Light House Melbourne apartments (67 levels/218 metres/715 feet) at 450 Elizabeth Street have been posted by Ryan Seychell. The large low rise area in the photos is the nearby historic Queen Victoria Market. Light House Melbourne is across the road from the 75 level/241 metres/791 feet green glass Victoria One apartment tower.

The core on Pearl has topped out and the corebox has been removed. I found this image on reddit, from atop the crane on site at Pearl, stunning night views to the north east, pity it isn't a panorama.

464 Collins Street has been put on the market, opening up the possibility of a larger scheme than the recently approved 55 level apartment development. Here is the existing Makers Mark building, which will be incorporated in any new building, a render of the thin building posted on UrbanMelbourne and Mark Baljak's posting of an article in the Australian Financial Review on the surge in interest in the western end of Melbourne. Just one block away is the 68 level 568 Collins Street, where construction has reached level 32.

Suleman sells down as developers circle

NICK LENAGHAN
Private investor and fresh flower mogul Sam Suleman is *divesting a $60 million Collins Street property as development activity surges along Melbourne’s main *business thoroughfare.

The 15-level office tower at 468-478 Collins Street is the third central Melbourne asset the Suleman family has put into the market in recent months amid a flurry of development-driven deals across the city.

The Collins Street building has 10,500 square metres of net lettable area, including a retail redevelopment along the street frontage.

It stands on a large 1469-square-metre plot of land at the fast-growing western end of Collins Street. Just next door to the Suleman property is the historic three-storey Makers Mark building, where a 55-level super-thin tower has been proposed.

Developer Lorenz Grollo opted to put 464-466 Collins Street to the *market this month after receiving offers, following planning approval for the $210 million office and *residential project.

Investors can now consider the neighbouring properties a potential consolidation play along the tightly held boulevard.

Already, the precinct around the Suleman property is humming with plans and projects under way.

On the opposite side of Collins Street, Mr Grollo is pressing ahead with a $100 million redevelopment of iconic Rialto Towers, which is 50 per cent held by his family.

Listed developer Mirvac has taken a prominent position in the neighbourhood, acquiring the historic Olderfleet Buildings at 477 Collins Street, where a $500 million redevelopment has been mooted.

Also nearby, super fund developer Cbus Property has control of a vast 6000-square-metre plus site, where it is working up plans for a $1 billion mixed use project on the corner of William and Collins streets.

Soorox has posted details of the latest project in Docklands' northern precinct, adjacent to NewQuay: Marina Tower, a $500 million development with 461 apartments and 320 hotel suites under the Four Points by Sheraton brand. Thanks also to Mark Baljak of UrbanMelbourne for his collection of renders from DKO Architecture, which he posted a year ago.

MARINA TOWER:

Overview
Address:
6-22 Pearl River Road

Project Description:
1 Block of 43 storeys
1 Block of 36 storeys
1 7-storey hotel

Total No. of Units:
269 hotel rooms and
461 residential units

Go-ahead for $500m project in Melbourne Docklands
GREG BROWN | THE AUSTRALIAN JUNE 03, 2014 12:00AM

LISTED Singaporean group Hiap Hoe has won planning approval from the Victorian government for its $500 million-plus hotel and apartment development in Melbourne’s Docklands.

The site, at 6-22 Pearl River Road, was approved last week and is likely to result in a project with 461 apartments and a hotel with 320 suites.

Starwood Hotels and Resorts Worldwide will manage the hotel under the Four Points brand, with the hotel to be named Four Points by Sheraton Melbourne Docklands.

Construction is expected to begin early next year. Hiap Hoe is already marketing the apartments in Singapore and Shanghai, as well as in Melbourne and Sydney.

The designer of the project is dKO Architecture. Its director, Koos de Keijzer, said two residential towers were planned, each with a 5 degree tilt in them. One of them would lean towards the water while the other would tilt away from it.

The towers would also be artistic with colour schemes, with one of them white with light windows and the other black with dark windows.

“It’s probably going to be the biggest sculptural tower ever built in Australia,” Mr de Keijzer said.

Hiap Hoe has bought aggressively in Australia in the past couple of years. It has a site on Lonsdale Street with potential to build a 350-room hotel and 658 apartments.

It also owns a site on Melbourne’s 206 Bourke Street, and also bought a Perth site in February for $90m.

Approval has been given for a 39 level (120 metres/394 feet) tower with 249 apartments at 57 Haig Street in Southbank. This pocket contains several high rise towers, sandwiched between the Westgate Freeway and the massive Crown Casino/Entertainment complex on the banks of the Yarra River. Thank you to Mark Baljak of UrbanMelbourne for posting renders from architects, Bruce Henderson.

Thank you to Mark Baljak of UrbanMelbourne who has just posted a report which virtually guarantees a go ahead with the Light House Melbourne apartments (67 levels/218 metres/715 feet), with demolition starting in October and construction next year. $240 million or 75% of apartments have been sold already.

Hengyi eyes new ventures beyond Melbourne

LARRY SCHLESINGER
Chinese-backed developer Hengyi Australia is looking beyond Melbourne for fresh investment opportunities, after selling $240 million worth of apartments in its latest high-rise development overlooking Queen Victoria Market.

Hengyi Australia head of marketing and development Stephen Speer told The Australian Financial Review the company was “actively looking for opportunities” and was currently considering a number of joint *ventures both in Melbourne and around Australia.

Light House, is a 69-level high-rise apartment development on the *corner of Elizabeth Street and Franklin Street in central Melbourne with an end value of $320 million. It is due for completion in early 2017.

The project is a joint venture between Hengyi and Melbourne GP-turned-developer Harold Chua.

Dr Chua acquired what is currently the Melbourne International Backpackers – a four-storey building on a 1009 square metre site – for $3.8 million in 2000 through his property investment business, Sixth Grange.

The existing backpackers will be demolished in October, with construction to begin next year.

Light House has been designed by architects Elenberg Fraser featuring an exterior luminescent shell of reflective panels.

It’s the second Australian project for Hengyi, an affiliate of China’s Shandong HYI Group, a large-scale residential and commercial developer based in the Shandong province.

Hengyi’s other Melbourne project – its first in Australia – is the 23-level residential conversion The William.

Due for completion in September, it will feature residences plus a ser*viced apartment component run by US hotel group Wyndham.

Light House features 607 units of which 75 per cent have already been sold. The contracts are worth $240 million on settlement.

Mr Speer said 120 apartments were sold following investor roadshows in Hong Kong, Singapore and Kuala Lumpur. A further batch was sold through agents in Shanghai.

There was no restriction on the number that could be sold overseas, with as many as 40 per cent *potentially owned by offshore *investors, Mr Speer said.

Thank you to Ryan Seychell of UrbanMelbourne for these images of Abode 318 (57 levels/188 metres/617 feet) as it nears full height. The wavy facade is increasingly evident.

I regularly look for updates here on these forums, Urban Melbourne and the Planning Ministers Permit Application and update the list to the best of my knowledge.

As I stressed on an earlier post on this thread, may not be 100% correct but I do my best.
