Proposals & Construction: 100m-149m highrises

Any details on this office tower? I read urban.com is two towers? 35fl and 32fl?

I don’t see this listed in skyscrapercentre database under proposed.

Won’t be able to build office space fast enough!!

Renders of two Cedar Pacific student towers have just been posted. Both sites were victims of the downturn in the resi market, with Cedar Pacific stepping in and re-designing them for the buoyant student market. The first, 303 La Trobe Street, which is just around the corner from Elizabeth Street, has gone to tender. A Unilodge, it will be around 140m. The second site, Wills Place, is in a quiet pocket, just off the high-rise hot spot of A'Beckett Street. Wills Place will be approx. 120m.

303 La Trobe
Updated design:



Wills Place, 17-23 Wills Street.
Updated design:







Collins Arch's bridge is looking good.

Melbourne Quarter's 2nd and 3rd towers are almost complete, whilst work continues on what looks like another stage of the decking over Wurundjeri Way. Shumway has also given us an overhead of the Skypark, which will be extended east when the tallest office, Melbourne Quarter Tower, goes up.

Apples - that’s just a podium upgrade getting underway at 55 Market Street.

No replacement 100-149m tower is expected on that site for the foreseeable future.

There may be scope to add additional floors to the existing building, because it was originally intended to go to 30 storeys. Instead it wound up with just 24.

Gkuz reports that MIT Group Holdings have appointed Hickory for the build on one of Melbourne's most distinctive designs, 388 William. A 38L/121m sloping mixed use tower, it will have considerable view security over the Flagstaff Gardens and neighbouring Queen Victoria Market. The developer, Shesh Ghale, a Nepalese-Australian, is best known for his renovation of the Argus building, for the Melbourne Institute of Technology. Plans for this site first surfaced in 2014, but the developer missed the resi boom and has re-configured the design for office/hotel use. The Art Nouveau façade, dating to 1913, is being retained. Elenberg Fraser are the architects. It is next door to a Radisson Hotel, which was originally the City West Police building.

Cranes have just been installed on two Southbank sites at the Fishermans Bend end of the precinct. The Normanby, 199-201 Normanby Road, will have 200 hotel rooms and 111 apartments. It will be Australia's first AC Hotel, a Marriott brand, and feature a cantilevered infinity pool on the 6th level.





Opposite the Normanby, at 202 Normanby Road, is the Oakwood Premier. The hotels will be close to the Melbourne Exhibition and Conference Centre, which already features a Pan Pacific and Novotel.

Oakwood have signed up to this one as a hotel operator.

40 levels, 154 hotel rooms & 238 serviced apartments. Will be known as 'Oakwood Premier Melbourne'

Demo has begun on 140 Lonsdale, which is the last stage of Charter Hall's Wesley Place precinct. The 20 level tower, with 22,750 sqm of space, will be fully occupied by the Australian Federal Police. The first stage, the 35L 130 Lonsdale Street, with 60,000 sqm of space, is fully tenanted and on track for a finish in mid-2020. The existing tower, 150 Lonsdale Street, with 29,000 sqm, will get an upgrade, including a 6-level podium opening onto the plaza surrounding the refurbished Wesley Church.

The Queen Victoria Market Munro site has its first crane.





By Simon Johanson

"Property giant Mirvac will transform a key site next to the historic Queen Victoria Market into Melbourne's first build-to-rent complex after striking a deal with developer PDG Corporation.
Australia's largest apartment developer will emerge as the ultimate owner of a $333 million apartment complex being developed on the Munro site in Therry Street by PDG.
Mirvac intends to take 'build-to-rent' ownership of the planned tower under a rental model that is relatively unknown in Australia in which large corporate landlords own an entire building and lease the apartments on a long-term basis to tenants."
