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.

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!
