atlantis tower - surely that cant be a starter block for a hammer at the rear, where would it fit?



anyone know when construction on the argus will actually start, of is it still flush with asbestos?

Last year the official line was that the clock tower was subject to funding. I assume it is the last priority of Latrobe and will only be considered after everything else is done. I don't know whether they would even fund it themselves anyway or ask for the government, donations, etc to fund it.

Contemporary expressions of the tower are being considered as part of the University's redevelopment plans.


They are looking for donations to build the clock tower so it will only get built when they have reaised enough money.

Yep, its all moving alone quite quickly and nicely.

There is now scaffolding on the back of the old pup opposite in Flinders St, next to the small building that has been wrapped up like a Christmas present.

The Rialto on Collins hotel will close on November 14 and undergo extensive renovations and will re-open in May 2008 and become an Inter Continental hotel.

Thanks for the heads up Marky.

It's missing the cool bit up top, maybe it's an older render? Or it may have been dumbed down. Apparently has two penthouses on top so maybe it is an older render. Dang imageshack I can't post it.

EDIT: Also noticed the multi-level carpark @ 114 Flinders Street is up for sale. Site of a new tower perhaps?

how tall do u guys reckon this tower would be..looks huge in that render but surely it wudnt be more than a 100m due to overshadowing

EDIT: After reading the paragraph i have noticed that it will be a 29 story office tower

I suspect it might have been dumbed down. It's skinny to say the least. Floor plates only 250sqm. Only 6,437sqm for the entire building!

I think it would have to be at least 100m high. It has 25 office levels and specifically mentions a raised floor system for cabling, etc. It's a strata office but they might be generous with the ceilings?

Reading the description it says it's 29 storeys tall 2 of which are penthouse apartments. The render on PropertyLook has only 27 levels in total (with no apartments), whereas the render in the old thread had 29 levels.
