Thanks to Nicholas Harrison, of UrbanMelbourne, for this render of the base.

lozza reported 22.09.15 that 80% of the 1,030 apartments had sold in a month, with construction expected to start Q1, 2016.

Just a postscript. UM list this as CARLTON / 168 Victoria Street, which is technically correct, but, in every other respect, visually, etc., it will look like part of the CBD, so I went with "MELBOURNE" in the title.

They are busy clearing the site, looks as if this one is also about to start My God, now we really can't keep track anymore.

4 or 5 stories taller than the Vision LMR should set a magnificent northern bookend to the city-scape.

The days of a gentle tapering-off of the city silhouette will be well and truly set in history!

On the north-south axis we'll see two enormous book-ends in A108 and CUB.

Great show, chaps!

I bet this city is a change (in terms of projects) from what you experienced in NZ.

Great news...can anyone do a similar render but allow for vertical perspective ? I always see a building flaring wider the taller it goes ?

I think it's worth posting this interesting angle by the inimitable Mr. G. Wilson. Swanston Central and Vision are going to look absolutely huge, virtually across the road from each other. You can see Vic. One's crane too, so there's more to come, of course.

You're right, Les. When I looked at the shot last night, I thought I could see Vic. One's core box, but then I looked at a close up and it was painted black. Now I realize that the core box is white on the west side, so I wasn't imagining it!

LOL it is like chalk and cheese - I couldn't stand it anymore, it takes like years for something to rise and then it is only about 40 floors of dullness - I couldn't stand one more disappointment. There is so much f**cking bureaucracy there it is sickening. I think that Auckland is experiencing a boom right now approx. 4 towers in the pipeline. I love it here, so exciting and things move hell fast.

P.S. We don't even discuss the small stuff here on this forum, can you imagine if we had a thread for every little project like the other forums have - it will be absolute chaos.

I really like this one. At least it isn't a rectangular glass box. It tapers off a bit with a few setbacks etc. I think we will be pleasantly surprised with this one
