380 Lonsdale Street has been approved, the first 200m approval by the new Planning minister.



Detailed plans for 555 Collins street have finally been made available.

At 300m and 91L it just managed to slip into Melbourne's supertall group:

PaPa Riddlz has posted some more renders of the just approved 380 Lonsdale Street twin tower development (67 levels/217 metres/712 feet and 51 levels/166 metres/545 feet). The towers will contain more than 1,000 dwellings (440 two-bedroom apartments, 288 one-bedroom apartments and 312 hotel rooms) and will have a new laneway (Timothy) connecting Lonsdale and Little Lonsdale Street. As reported by The Age newspaper, the project will replace an ageing 1984 carpark and office development.

The design of a new 82 level hotel/apartment tower in Melbourne's Southbank is being refined. The project will be the 4th hotel for the massive Crown Casino and Entertainment complex on the banks of the Yarra River, opposite the central business district. At more than 200,000 square metres (2.15 million square feet), the building will be one of Melbourne's biggest, adding to the existing 510,000 square metres (5.5 million square feet) Crown complex. The developer is seeking approval for a skybridge over Queensbridge Street to connect the new hotel to the main complex, with the Melbourne City Council likely to oppose any such application.

This is the current design of the project. Thanks to Grollo for posting the render.

Work has just begun on another PDS Group project in the inner city suburb of South Yarra. 661 Chapel Street is a 30 level residential tower and sits behind the prestigious Melbourne High School.

If you mean the car parking podium, this is a low point in the Melbourne central business district (a creek flowed down the course of Elizabeth Street to the Yarra River), so is subject to flooding. The podium looks ugly in the render, so we can only hope it looks a little better in reality. The developer, Brady, is not noted for high quality buildings. The green building in the second render has just started construction (Victoria One apartments/75 levels/241 metres/791 feet).

Brady recently completed twin apartment towers, which are not too bad, but then there is this dreary Brady Hotel.

134 to 160 Spencer Street has been reduced from 89 levels to 78 levels, according to a post by PaPa Riddlz, who I also thank for the renders. The height reduction is related to overshadowing of the Yarra River. The original height was 285 metres, with the revised height not available yet, but will still be well above 200 metres. The site, directly opposite Southern Cross Station, is currently occupied by a single level tavern, after being derelict for many years.

Good news on one of Melbourne's slimmest and most dramatic towers, Elysium (73 levels/240 metres/787 feet) by Qantas 743. The site is in Southbank, just a block from the Crown Casino/Entertainment complex.

"Update on this one in case anyone has been wondering:

Caught up with someone late last week whose involved in this project.

It's still definitely going ahead with marketing due to begin later this year. Early registration has been "positive"."

The project received planning approval in December 2013, but there has been little progress since.

Thanks silver mb.

Good news also from PaPa Riddlz on one of Melbourne's largest projects, at 250 Spencer Street, which is a massive site that was originally home to the offices and printing works of "The Age" newspaper. This will contain Melbourne's first Ritz Carlton hotel.

"As predicted, sales launch incoming

Called "West Side Place" seems they like this whole New York theme.

4 Towers between 62 and 79 levels, 2600 apartments and 250 hotel rooms."

One of Melbourne's tallest apartment projects took a major step forward yesterday, with the announcement that a builder, Probuild, has been appointed. Aurora Melbourne Central will be 88 levels/271 metres (actually 270.82)/889 feet, with 941 apartments and 250 serviced apartments plus office and retail space in the podium. Work is expected to begin in June, once all project details have been finalized. The major multi level car park on the site will have to be demolished. As this map posted by Oriolus shows, this will be the 5th building over 200 metres under construction within a 200 metres radius in Melbourne's booming northern precinct, with a 6th (181 metres, Empire Melbourne) also under way. A render by Laurence Dragomir of UrbanMelbourne puts them all in perspective. Four of the six are already under construction, with demolition under way on the Light House apartments site.

Thanks to PaPa Riddlz for posting the report in the Herald Sun newspaper. The article incorrectly gives the height as 286 metres, which doesn't allow for the site elevation.

Work to start on new 92-storey mega tower in central Melbourne



WORK on one of the nation’s tallest buildings is due to start soon in Melbourne.

Probuild Constructions has been chosen to erect the 92-storey Aurora Melbourne Central tower planned for La Trobe St.

About 95 per cent of units have been sold for the skyscraper, which will feature 941 residential apartments, 250 serviced units, shops and offices.

Aurora will also have an underground link to the Melbourne Central, Emporium, Myer and David Jones retail precincts.

The tower will be 286m high, Australia’s third tallest after Eureka (297m) and Gold Coast’s Q1 (323m).

However, the proposed Australia 108 apartment tower in Southbank will be 317m high.

Anwar Syahrin Abdul Ajib, CEO of Malaysian developer UEM Sunrise Berhad, said talks would be held with Probuild over the next few months to work out design and contract details.

“We target to commence site works by June 2015,” he said.

Probuild group managing director Simon Gray said: “We are thrilled by the opportunity to hit the ground running on this truly iconic project.”

One-bedroom units cost from $394,500.

I'd like to backtrack quickly and say thanks to redden for posting the pic of the South Melbourne Town Hall at post 318.

It's the first time I've seen this building and - wow! fabulous! - it's yet another example of the magnificant civic architecture that is a signature of the mid to late Victorian era. I doubt if too many contemporary civic monuments will hold the same allure 120-plus years down the track. From "lowly" Bourke St Public School here in Surry Hills (Sydney) to the grand Sydney GPO to Maryborough's grandiose railway station to the stately South Melbourne Town Hall and all the court houses, post offices, police stations, hospitals etc etc in between. There's something special about the civic architecture of that era; apart from the grand and imposing nature of the larger structures, they are a testament to the sense of unapologetic civic pride that people had in their public buildings, something which is rarely encountered today.

small version of the image posted by redden at #318.
It appears that the architect(s) were members of the "the taller the better" school.

Laurence Dragomir, of UrbanMelbourne, reports some more details of the West Side Place approved development, with 4 towers and more than 2,500 apartments at 250 Spencer Street. Melbourne's first Ritz Carlton hotel, with 250 rooms, will take up the top 15 levels of a 79 level tower, with around 750 apartments contained in the lower levels. There will be a sky lobby check in for what will be Australia's highest hotel. A second 260 room 3 to 4 star hotel will be contained in the podium and lower levels of Tower 3, which is expected to be 62 levels and approx. 210 metres (689 feet). A final height for the 79 level tower has not been announced, but it should be in the 260 to 280 metres range, with a glass lantern summit, as shown in this render posted by Grollo.

Thank you to Mark Baljak of UrbanMelbourne for a typically comprehensive post on the Brady Group's latest proposal, 280 Queen Street, which will be 80 levels/254.62 metres/835 feet. The building will be very prominent on Melbourne's skyline, as it sits on a hill in Melbourne's courts precinct. There will be 589 apartments, with some office space in the podium. The Brady Group are quoted as keen to get this project going, as their current major project, Vision apartments (72 levels/226 metres/741 feet) is well under way.
