Thanks for the dedication pic tayser Even when I lived in Melbourne I got Lonsdale and La 'Trobe mixed up; still do, still will. Guess it's because both start with 'L' and end in 'E', I kinda guess LOL.
Still doesn't change things. It's funny how Melbourne got 3 scrapers of similar height and shape around the same time. Crown Prom. AWB, and BHP-B HQ.
Looking at your recent pics again, I feel like Iiiiiii'm almost there
if I were to buy an apartment in this building, I'd want that corner above ^^ The quieter end will be on Russell Street (some privacy) yet only a stone's throw away from it all, plus you'd get morning sun as opposed to long burning afternoon sun... anyhow:
but I originally thought they were far too n00by - as I said, I only just got the cam so just getting used to it
Still havent got a Swanston Street "vista" yet - so good seeing something -really- modern up that end of the street :guns1:

I have! I bought one on this corner - mainly because I was blown away by
the Wardle design and also it was so good to finally see something being done
on this site. Everything so far has absolutely vindicated my decision - except
perhaps for those yellow inserts!
I went bowling at Strike in Little Lonsdale Street on Friday night with my partner and few other guys. We had a blast and it was full! If you haven't been to Strike on Chapel St, you should go to Strike at QV!
