GlennWilson's series of beautiful Upper West Side shots manage to soften the less colourful sides of the 4 towers (soon to be 5). The tallest, Manhattan, 170m/52L, is close to finish. It's amazing density for Australia. The bare site behind is West Side Place, 4 towers topping out at 270m/79L.

Melbourne's VCCC (Victorian Comprehensive Cancer Centre) is on track to finish in June. It brings together several cancer treatment and research facilities in a massive $A1 billion ($US740 million) building. Skybridges enable it to share facilities with the Royal Melbourne Hospital.

One of Melbourne's biggest projects got the go ahead from the planning minister this week, just as the finishing touches were being added to the new sales office on site. Queens Place consists of 1600 apartments in twin 79 level towers, with one tower 249m/881 feet and the other 246m/808 feet. A 5 level podium will contain 8,000 sq.metres of office space, retail, a supermarket and child care facility. There are already 5 x 200 metre towers (plus a 197m one) under construction within two blocks of Queens Place, with a 6th about to start, so Melbourne's new northern cluster will keep forum photographers busy for some time to come. One of the new towers, Eq. (202m/663feet), is next door to the Queens Place site.

Development approval has been given for 295 King Street, at 64 levels and 211m/691 feet. 440 apartments, in a shimmering iridescent glass tower which was inspired by Brancusi's "Bird in Space" sculpture. A project by the little known developer, Farinia, it remains to be seen if it actually goes ahead, given the record number of major residential towers under construction in Melbourne at present. Site flipping must be an option, now that it has approval, particularly as it was submitted before stricter building codes were introduced by the new Planning Minister.

A-brain posted some screen shots from the twin tower Queens Place video, which was posted by PaPa Riddlz. This project looks like going ahead sooner than we expected. Qantas743 and db2 report that sales of the 1st tower (approx. 800 apartments) have already reached 70%, with construction scheduled to begin in July. The 2nd tower should start construction about a year later. This project is particularly well positioned for public transport, with two subway stations a block away and the LaTrobe Street tram running past the site. The Flagstaff Gardens are one block away and the massive Queen Victoria Market less than a 5 minute walk. Both towers will have colourful lanterns on their summit. Slightly reminiscent of New York's landmark Time Warner Centre at Columbus Circle, Queens Place will be slightly taller. 249m/246m versus 230m for Time Warner.

Another massive project, West Side Place, has its official sales launch in May, according to Qantas743. The first two, of four, towers will probably go up together, as they share a podium. These towers are the tallest, at 270m/79L/885 feet, which includes a Ritz Carlton hotel, and the shortest, at around 210m/62L/689 feet. The remaining 2 towers are expected to be around 230-240m. New renders posted by PaPa Riddlz, thank you.

Melbourne's St Kilda Road, a tree-lined boulevard, is steadily returning to its 19th Century residential roots, with apartment towers taking the place of office buildings. It is surrounded by parks and has excellent public transport, in the form of trams. The latest proposal is the awkwardly named St Boulevard, which contains 435 apartments in 3 buildings varying from 9 to 20 levels. With height restrictions in St Kilda Road, 20 levels is about the maximum permitted. The development features particularly lush landscaping, with leafy views across the playing fields of a prominent school.

The site is on the other side of the sports oval, in the centre of the photo. The large open green area at the base of the photo is Fawkner Park, with Albert Park Lake closer to the bay. Melbourne's F1 Grand Prix was held on a course around Albert Park Lake on Sunday.

Another residential project close to St Boulevard is Parque, by the Malaysian group, Setia. Twin towers,ranging up to 19 levels are connected by a podium with a roof top infinity pool.

Every one of these projects is unique and interesting! Some of these look like they are from a Sci-Fi movie in 2050!

Thanks towerpower123. We do have some great architects working in Melbourne, but we also have plenty of boring stuff too. Still, let's focus on the interesting stuff, like Opera Melbourne, at 450 St Kilda Road, which is also in a height restricted area. It curves towards an historic, registered mansion, Airlie, which is a reminder of St Kilda Road's gracious past, and, of course, gives Opera protected views. Sold out, demolition will start shortly on the old office block on the site.

Those smooth and slender glassy towers, often with a rather unique design twist, are quite something, and somehow seem distinctively Melbourne.

Though I'd also like to see some classical stone, brick etc. facades for a change, that cater to the Victorian character of the city.
