Report in the Australian Financial Review that Melbourne's first Ritz-Carlton will take up the top 15 levels of the tallest tower (85 levels/approx. 300 metres/984 feet) in the 4 tower re-development of the former "Age" newspaper site at 250 Spencer Street site. Only preliminary renders are available, as designs have not been finalised, but the tower could exceed the height of Melbourne's current tallest, Eureka, which is 297 metres. Demolition is still under way on the massive site. The "Age" building is generally near the top of the list of Melbourne's ugliest buildings, so forum members are watching progress on demolition with great satisfaction. Thanks to UrbanMelbourne for render.

Some images of the new retractable roof being fitted to the Margaret Court Arena in the Melbourne Tennis Centre. This is the 3rd arena in the Tennis Centre to be given a roof which closes. The Tennis Centre is home to the Australian Open Tennis Championship, which is one of the world's Grand Slam tennis fixtures. Thanks to melburn21 for posting photos.

Three big approvals today.

SOUTHBANK > 70 Southbank Blvd - Australia 108 > 319m / mixed use


Quote:
http://www.news.com.au/national/vict...-1226966611057

MELBOURNE is set to host the southern hemisphere’s tallest building, with a 100-storey apartment tower approved for Southbank.

Australia 108 will stand at 319m — 25m higher than the Eureka Tower — and have more than 1100 units.

It is proposed by Singapore developer Aspial Corporation, which also wants to build an 83-level skyscraper in A’Beckett St, near Queen Victoria Market.
The Napthine Government has given the green light to Australia 108 after initially approving a much higher version of the tower last year.

But the original 388m project designed by Eureka architects Fender Katsalidis had to be scaled back due to CBD flight controls.

Planning Minister Matthew Guy said the new design would no longer feature a hotel, but would provide housing choice with a mix of one-, two- and three-bedroom apartments.

“Australia 108 will be the most striking building on Melbourne’s skyline and a great example of the strength of homegrown Melbourne architecture,” he said.

The new structure will tower over Southbank.

Also newly approved is a 75-level apartment tower at 452 Elizabeth St and a 54-storey building at 84 Queensbridge, Southbank.

Mr Guy said the three planned skyscrapers, with more than 2000 units, would involve an

$830 million investment and 5800 construction jobs.

“These new buildings will cater for those choosing to live in our exciting, vibrant CBD area, which is fast on track to be the first true 24-hour central city in Australia,” he said.

“Central Melbourne is the right place for high-density, highrise living.”

Mark Baljak, of UrbanMelbourne, reports that Brookfield Multiplex has been appointed as the builder of the Queensland Investment Corporation's office/retail/hotel complex at 72-82 Collins Street. 36 and 19 levels (187 metres/614 feet and 84 metres/276 feet), it will contain a 250 room hotel, with high-end retail, possibly including Apple and Tom Ford.

One of Melbourne's skinniest apartment towers has moved closer to starting, with Mark Baljak of UrbanMelbourne reporting that the developer, Baracon, has named the tower, at 54-56 Clarke Street, Southbank, Elysium. Baracon's website refers to an "twist design which allows all apartments to have exposure to direct natural light". It is 74 levels/240 metres/787 feet, with its thin shape only allowing for 288 apartments. Renders suggest an interesting organic shape at street level.
