A never built plan for the site from 1959:

The smooth curved concept in Papps post actually looks really dated, and for me I think the one we got is quite cutting edge.

I think Grollo’s 1959 proposal would give it a run for its money.....

It's STILL too tall for that site. It looks like an architect hasn't been anywhere near it. Looks like a "Central Equity" job.

It just looks stunted to me as if they ran out of money to finish it properly.
One of the biggest disappointments of the current crop of towers being built.
Its a bit like a mad womans shit all over the place!

I would have given lesser criticism with the depiction below......

Much ado about a small shadow sweeping across the Yarra’s south bank........ it would at least have helped to usher-on all those ‘layabouts’ gunning for some winter warmth, which surely would have resulted in increased business for Crown Casino - dare I suggest, what say, with them wanting to keep warm inside the Casino and all!

Didn’t the Chinese end up with an improved, taller version of this SHoP design after all?

And it almost looks like a Collins House style Resi tower placed atop the lower supporting structure...

In hindsight, oh what foolhardiness prevails in the upper echelons of Planning officialdom....

Use your imagination!

Midday midwinter sun?.... hardly rough sleepers.

I’d have more expected you to be following the usual argumentative tack of the pink-tinged Forumer brigade, querying what I meant by suggesting that ‘foolhardiness’ afflicts the upper echelons of our Planning hierarchy, given the apparently magnificent result that’s been achieved at 447 Collins Street.

Horses for courses....

Supporters of Wynne’s remarkable Planning determinations and blind followers of Premier Dan’s philosophy, if I needed to elucidate any further.

Why? Papps is entitled to his view. Even if you are offended.
