Site clearance will obviously take a few more months, building designs have to be completed and "Further permits will be required for the individual towers when each design is finalised". Nevertheless, the Far East Consortium has developed its 5 tower Upper West Side project (across the road from The Age site) much faster than most expected: 2 complete, 2 under construction, so I'm hoping that we'll have something to celebrate sooner rather than later. It has to be a plus that Ritz-Carlton are taking 15 levels of the tallest tower.

Two new sunken galleries have been created next to Melbourne's Shrine of Remembrance (its pyramidal roof was inspired by the Mausoleum of Halicarnassus, one of the Seven Ancient Wonders of the world).

Black plastic still covers the decorative panels which will form a giant image of an Aboriginal elder. Building on the right is RMIT's Design Hub, which has a facade made up of moveable glass discs.

The older red brick structure is the historic Malthouse, which will become a retail centre for the Swanston Square development.

The small building on the left is the Pixel Building, which was the most energy efficient building in the world when it was completed a few years ago. It scored a perfect 105 Green Star points and 105 LEED points, generating all its own water and power on site.

Dean reports: Only about 60 apartments left for sale out of 474. Should be UC in a few months. Empire Melbourne, 55 levels/178 metres/584 feet.

lozza reports on 568 Collins Street (68 levels/224 metres/735 feet): About level 38 in core box. Still around 30 more floors to go for this baby. It's a real stunner close up. The detail on the glass and facade is amazing. Photo by SYDNEY; 568 Collins Street on right, Prima on left. 2nd photo by me.

I love the way colour is being splashed around some of the new buildings Much better than the drab soviet style plain concrete boxes.

Very cool projects in Melbourne, impressive.

It looks like Eureka Tower will remain the tallest for a while. Is there something taller being built?

Four current proposals for 300m (Eureka is 297m) with a few probably going to get up.

447 Collins, Proposed ~300m
70 Southbank Bvld. (Aust108), Approved 319m
250 Spencer Street, Approved envelope, 295-300m
1 Queensbridge Street, Planning, 308m (casino hotel, will probably happen)

555 Collins, previous proposal at ~420m before flight paths had it lowered to ~300 then the site was sold, could host a similar sized development.


Here is a list of our 200m+ club which are either going up or proposed for the city, you can click on the names to be taken to the project page:

Yes; there is some emergency accommodation for street people, but you still see some people sleeping outside. Rents are very high and house prices are expensive compared with wages.

Thank you to Ryan Seychell and Mark Baljak of UrbanMelbourne for these photos of Fulton Lane apartments.

What color is the glass on Prima Tower? It looks blue in some shots, but almost a bronzy brown in others.

Yes, it completely depends on the light: cloudy days it's more blue, but, with sun, it comes alive with a golden glow. I like it best in the setting sun, when it's a reddish gold; definitely one of our best buildings.

A proposal for a major commercial building on the large 447 Collins Street site looks likely to be approved, with the council just approving the public park element of the project. The building is composed of three geometric volumes, stacked on top of each other, with a height of 286 metres (938 feet). Extract from planning document and photo of existing building on the site (with the white crane) by Ryan Seychell of UrbanMelbourne, thank you.
