During the meet Sydneysider OzFrog asked if anyone had pictures of Melbourne Central U/C.
Anyway I found enough photos of melbourne back then to make a thread. I think some current forumers might have taken some of the photos. Good onya!

Melbournre central, F$%k thats a big core.






Collins st


How weird does 101 look without the spire? We'll think the same about eureka eventually.




There we go.


Brand new 101 and 120 uc.


Holy 120c!






Bourke place


Base of ASX and Bourke place.

Dan this is f**kin unreal. Thanks heaps for posting these! 101 does look totally bizarre without its spire. Imagine if it had been left just at that (without the spire).

I've often wondered if it could be extended. I mean check out the size of the core box at 200m, most core boxes are nowhere *near* that size at the top of the building. Perhaps they left the core big so they could add on the extra 100m at a later date?
Well I can dream.

amazingly the "90's" boom was over by 1992. with exception of ANZWHQ 1993.
with all the big bitches going up, melb then paid the price for next decade with virtually no construction.

1990







heres a pic from 1992 with all bldgs complete except Southgate


Bourke place actually completed in 1990.



1992

Woah.... Jolimont is *huge* in that pic! Compared to what I travelled through when I was down there, that's just massive. How the heck did they manage to pull off the rationalisation? That must have been tough!

Reading through some old posts, unfortunately the pictures don't seem to be saved. Is there anyway to search them up again?

A lot of them might be on image hosting sites that either don't exist any more or have gone $$ and so ppl have stopped using them.

That said, if you right-click and Show Source, you can look through the code to find each image reference and see if any are still floating around - maybe grab the file name and google it?

----edit

Well, I tried one myself and looky here!




----- another edit: might as well do the rest. I could only salvage the ones from uewepuep's initial post

Oh yes, please do Coroman,

Deebs, thanks so much, I remember everyone of these beauties going up!

I loved the fact that 120 Collins lift well was almost topped out before the first 5 floors were finished! blew my mind then!

This was everything about my late 20's

What a buzz!
