Very impressive designs! I really admire the fact that the architects of these buildings think outside of the box.

Northbank Place is excellent as are many of the others. The Yarra River, Victoria Harbour, Docklands, and that huge park downtown are huge assets for Melbourne. These are features which not every city is blessed with.

I love Melbourne and Sydney, for some reason I wasn't aware that Melbourne has so many projects going on, let alone so many with crazy designs. Interesting stuff!
