East Central 97m
















If you turn around counter clockwise after taking the above image you see this small apartment building. The Trio site is now on your right.






Below is an image of Trio. Podium has been redesigned.



Turn around and head back towards Whitehorse Rd.

Below is a render of Panorama as well as Panorama's site.












If you turn to your left after taking the above pic you see Prospect's site

From yesterday’s Fin Review. “... At Box Hill, Vicinity has completed a master plan to reconfigure two existing retail sites across the existing 5.5 hectare footprint. The redevelopment could potentially deliver 350,000 sq m across seven new towers, creating close to $2 billion in developed real estate.

Carolyn Viney, Vicinity’s chief development officer, said the plan would consolidate the existing retail holdings into one land parcel, on the southern side, to create a major destination above the train station.

That would then free up the remaining parcel on the northern side for a “higher density, mixed-use development integrated and connected into the broader Box Hill town centre,” she said.”

Wonder if the State Gov't is working with/done a deal with Vicinity to use the northern parcel referred to for SRL works

I forgets about that one and my cousin plan move East Central once complete then cousin told me may be watching them over here Box Hill then they’re told my cousin confirmed council work on limit skyline in area then could be 260 metre height allow
Only allow Whitehorse Road probably four of them between 200-250 metre for Whitehorse Road if council like this then becomes law in 2021

“If Melbourne no room for skyscrapers then bring them down to here Box Hill, I allow them to 250 metre height but of course probably no more over 260 metre only area Whitehorse Road would be perfect”

Absolutely the Govt is working with them on SRL. Seven towers with 350,000m2 is 50,000m2 per tower on average. So 30 levels at least you would think. Between 100m and 150m most likely but maybe a surprise on the upside. A108 is around 140,000m2 isn't it?

AFR: "Vicinity expects to lodge development applications for both projects early next year".

The NIMBYs will be out in force for anything over 150m I reckon. It'll stay between 100m and about 140m at a maximum for the foreseeable future.

My cousin text me while ago then Council pretty happy with 260 metres.

“It’s would be not seen 260 metre in 2030 but if need require change limit in 2021 become law then requires in 2025 plan until 2030 first proposed by council”

Look like NIMBY okay with this if they’re need room for 260 metre then allow require them.

Look like won’t seen in 16 years from now first opening.

Melbourne are enough room is it? And if they get Green Spine get up.

This probably first time in Australia history allow them tallest building outside largest building without approved by council different than Parramatta.

Council want it, tall buildings and heaps of residents means more ratepayers, with a brand new station (plus no doubt a revamp for the existing) a possible tramline extension and other improvements means a lot of people can live in this smaller area.

Plus there isn't too much housing right near these sites, given it is mostly commercial or education/health areas.


Bulldozing everything south of whitehorse road and north of cambridge st is a huge area for redevelopment over the next 15 years.

One day. Meanwhile the present skyline. Pics for the time capsule to be opened in 2030.











Doncaster in the background image above is also densifying nicely. Shame they are not as bold. The hill makes even the small apartment buildings look imposing from certain angles.

They should build another tower with an observation deck on Doncaster Hill and connect Box Hill and Doncaster with trams again!

As it was 130 years ago:



One of the trams that took you from Box Hill Station to Doncaster Hill in the 1890s.



First Electric Tram Route

From October 1889 until January 1896, an electric tram ran between the Box Hill Post Office, on the corner of Whitehorse Road and Station Street, across the paddocks, over Koonung Creek and up to a terminus near the intersection of Elgar and Doncaster Roads, Doncaster (approx 3.5km/2.5 Miles).

Doncaster Tower

At the Doncaster end was the famous 285 foot high Doncaster Tower which attracted thousands of visitors for its awesome views.

It was the first electric tram in Australia, and the southern hemisphere, to operate as a regular service and ran along Station St and Tram Road.

Unique ‘glass curtain’ design proposed for high rise on Rutland Rd, Box Hill

Developers behind a 13-storey building planned for Box Hill have come up with a unique design in a bid to make it look less imposing and more visually appealing. But will it be convincing enough to get the go-ahead?


A double-storey brick building stands at 38 Rutland Rd, Box Hill.

Amid the vocal opposition to the flurry of high-rise development in Box Hill, a developer is seeking to shake up the landscape with some unique architecture.

A “glass curtain” has been proposed to break up the appearance of a 13-storey commercial building planned for the eastern end of the busy Box Hill commercial precinct.

Moshui Pty Ltd has applied to build the 44.6m tower at 38 Rutland Rd, with 2750sq m of office space across 11 floors, above a two-storey restaurant on the ground and first floor.





According to the application, the building’s contemporary geometrical design intends to reduce the appearance of its mass and create visual interest, as the tower would be more visible than other buildings, being located alongside the rail corridor.

The design would feature a “street wall” up the facade of the first four levels, with a recessed “extensive glass curtain wall” on the levels above.

The glass curtain would include a series of hollowed out spaces where balconies would be located to create a perforated, “lightweight” effect and break up the building’s appearance.

Greenery would also be planted in the spaces to drape down the facade and soften the building’s overall look.

Whitehorse councillor Blair Barker, who regularly voiced his concern with the design of developments in Box Hill, described the proposal as “visually interesting”.

He was yet to make a decision on the application but said he was concerned about the proposed size, with most neighbouring buildings in the precinct less than three storeys.

But Cr Barker said he was keen on the plans for the building’s use.

“It’s really pleasing to see office space being proposed after a massive preponderance of residential applications in recent years,” he said.

“Office space means jobs.”

Cr Barker said the plans for the restaurant to create activity on the street — which is “not that flash at the moment” — were also pretty attractive.

Parking at the building would include 52 car spaces contained within an eight-level car stacker, accessed through a basement level.

The council is also in the process of considering an application for a 15-storey mixed-use building just behind the site at 25-29 Ellingworth Parade.
