It looks like Melbourne's first major build-to-rent project is finally under way. 256-260 City Road, Southbank is a 60L/198m tower by Grocon, who bought the site for $35 million. worzil reports that site preparation has re-started, with the old floor slab being ripped up, and Icon signage has gone up. Renders are courtesy of PaPa Riddlz. An AFR article reports that Grocon pioneered the build-to-rent market in Australia with the Commonwealth Games athletes village on the Gold Coast. N.B. The render is dated, with the Monarch Tower now known as Home Southbank.

Good to see Grocon back in action in its home town.

Has there been a change in design? Podiums look different in the two pics posted.


Hope not. Love the top.

I've been waiting for an updated render, but there's nothing on the Bates Smart website yet. I too am hoping that the summit remains basically unchanged.

Design has changed a fair bit -it now has a flat top. Bates Smart have a model of it in their office.

Thanks Archi, a little disappointing. We'll just have to trust Bates Smart, and their client. 35 Spring Street, Capitol Grand and the QVM tower give you confidence, but then we've got Collins House's west fašade and Opal tower. Why don't they keep their website up to date?

405 Bourke seems a bit slow, but they do have to integrate the tower with an existing podium.

Work to deal with the horrible sludge which lurks beneath Southbank sites is under way, preparatory to the rise of Palladium, a resi at 251 City Road (opposite Home Southbank).
