Just so you know fabian i liked melbcitys post because he changed it. And I'm glad that you post about other cities as it's always good to have an outsiders perspective. Appreciate the effort that you go to regarding encouraging Perths presence as I think sometimes perth forumers tend to keep to themselves rather than promoting their city in the national threads (that being said when we do post we're often ignored/belittled).

Fabian, you're very quick to play the victim but don't seem particularly interested in examining your own behaviour. This thread has been completely derailed by you for no reason. It provided valuable new information and content that was appreciated by everyone but yourself simply because is wasn't in your thread. Ridiculously childish behaviour, as is this self-pitying tantrum.

Will second everyone above in mentioning that I also very much appreciate your substantial contributions to the forum, but these compliments really aren't deserved in this situation and what you do contribute in no way excuses the behaviour you've exhibited here.

Play nice guys. Fabian's thread has some great construction photos of the big projects and a lot of interesting news clips. This thread is more related to renders of all Perth's current projects with an ensuing discussion. No need to merge them. Use either thread as you see fit.

Let's get back on topic.

Unfortunately though, it's not good news, another big player has left the market. Blame NIMBY's and govt red tape.

There is more happening in Perth now than at any time during the "boom". Just need to wait for the news headlines to catch up and it will be 2006 all over again.

Lots of activity yet little in the 200m territory that will have major skyline impact.
Is there a height limit system in place for the CBD and East Perth?

It's Perth..in the right spots a 150m has huge impact due to the 2Dness, there are multiple 150m+ towers in the pipeline/uc.

Nah, look at the impact the height of Central Park has on that part of Sydney.
Plenty of these projects will have instant impact on the areas they are going up in.

But agreed would love another 200m+ tower to join the club.

It's has amazing impact on the streetscape and has helped to transform the Ultimo precinct, yet it's had almost no impact on the skyline. In Sydney 116m is rather insignificant.

Oh ok. I havent been back to Sydney since it was completed but some pics give you the impression that it dominates that part of town.

Treasury (and maybe the Emu Brewery buildings) will probs have the most noticeable impact on the classic view of the skyline from S Perth. But EQ will completely change the impact from the south west (eg the Kings Park view from Mount Eliza), and the Northbridge Link will fill gaps in the skyline from the north even though the tallest building is only 20 storeys. The city is also going to look completely different (more like an actual city) from the air.

The East Perth stuff will barely be noticeable though imo - slightly taller white fridges among other white fridges.

Also might be worth mentioning the Perth Hobby Centre proposal (can't remember what it's called - the open air carpark on Hay St) even though it's unclear whether it will ever happen. If the current proposal goes ahead that should add some good filler connecting the Northbridge link to the St Georges ridgeline, and take away some of the Telstra exchange's dominance in that area.

I suspect (with nothing to back it up) that east perth will at some point hit critical mass and we'll get a few +150m proposed in the area.

One plus is that it gets Perth ready for the next boom while fixing up any shortfalls in demand for office, resi and hotel space that the boom bought on.
The good thing is that even with slower growth in WA, at least the construction work will keep the city going.

What's the height limit between the CBD and the Northbridge Link site?
Will the gap ever be filled in the future?

Not sure the height limit but there are quite a few developments sites - but there are also a lot of heritage buildings in that gap so Im not sure to what extent the gap can properly be filled.
