The Faculty of Economics and Commerce building will be located at 198 Berkely Street in Carlton.
The building will offer state of the art facilities and services for the Economics and Commerce student body and also the wider University community.
Comprising 13 levels, it boasts a variety of teaching and open access laboratories facilities, lecture theatres, office spaces and breakout consultation spaces.
The building will have a five star energy rating, including a chilled beam technology cooling system.
Designed by architects Meitier3, the new building is expected to be completed in 2008.
One of the premier facilities in the new building will be a 450 seat lecture theatre located in the basement level,
with a smaller 100 seat lecture theatre to be located on level one of the building. :)

flicking through the big paper this morning

>>SXY has necessary sales and will start construction shortly

>>637 Chapel & 4 Daly will both host new 5star hotels by Asian Pacific. one will be clad in white glass and the other with timber - the one over chapel st will have a pool overhang similar to Adelphi in the city. guessing both will be between 11-14 levels and are supposed to be complete later next year so should start 3rd quarter this year

any plans aussie steve?

Here's the article out of Capital Gain.

Hotels make a booking

Look out, Adelphi, the northern end of Chapel Street will soon be Melbourne's newest celebrity mecca. It has been announced that the two sites recently bought at number 637 and 4 Daly Street will be transformed into two five-star boutique hotels.

Bought by the Deague family's Asian Pacific Building Corporation for $11 million, the 1500- and 770 -square-metre sites will be in the hands of architect Rothe Lowman. Planning is well under way.

The firm proposes slender, multi-storey buildings - one clad in a resin-based timber product; the other boasting white glass with digital art by local artists.

But William Deague said the real eye-catcher would be the proposed swimming pool, which will overhang Chapel Street.

The hotels are expected to open towards the end of next year.
