With Multiplex signed up, we thought that we were close to a start on Flinders Bank, a three tower hotel/resi complex at the western end of the CBD, but Mirvac has stepped in and bought most of the site for $200 million. Only announced on Xmas Eve, details are sketchy, but the report says that Mirvac is planning an office and build-to-rent apartments. The St Regis group had signed up for Levels 1-11 in the main tower, with the balance of the tower as resi. The report says that the St Regis tower is excluded from the deal, but it does create doubts when a substantial re-design is required for the rest of the site.

All the latest renderings (tasty morsels) from the Fender Katsalidis web site:

Collins Arch, thanks to skyscraperami.

This building gives a different impression from every angle and distance! This is from the corner of Flinders and Market Streets



The former Mercure hotel is rapidly coming down, to make way for Cbus's luxury 17 Spring Street tower.

Perth, 'The Link' (aka Perth City Link aka Northbridge Link)

This looks to be a proposal in 'The Link' on lots 6 and 7
It is far beyond the scale we are/were expecting to see proposed but it is not surprising since the lots were purchased by FEC (Far East Consortium) who in the past few years along with Fragrance Group have raised the bar of project standards in Perth, and thank God for their cashed-up-asian pockets that don't require bank finance.

Not sure if it belongs here or in the 150m+ thread but will leave here for now.

Another student tower is about to start, with the Duke of Kent hotel being readied for demolition. 303 La Trobe will be 147m; the latest in the very busy Unilodge family. A resi proposal on the site reached the 97% sale mark, but the developer was unable to stitch up finance, so Cedar Pacific stepped in. Good position, just a few doors from busy Elizabeth Street and Melbourne Central, with the Queen Victoria Market three blocks north. There are already three major student towers under construction within two blocks (175m, 161m and 154m).

Updated design:

This MELBOURNE BOOM is unprecedented and amazing to be alive for and to witness this transformation in person. Loving every moment of this city finally coming to the maturity it has always had, and showing the world what Australian urban culture is all about. Sydney is the beauty, the nature the beaches and flash and cash!!!! and Melbourne the cosmopolitan, chic, cultured, foodie style capital. Keep it all coming. The finest of everything that is high culture, design and style is just pumping out of this understated, undervalued city at the end of the world.

Yes... with everything going on I don’t seem to pay too much attention to the < 150m crowd but there are some amazing buildings taking shape in the shorter category. 120m is still close to 400ft.

Proposals &amp; Construction: 100m-149m highrises

Wesley Place
Right next to the Greek Festival! Souvlaki in one hand... iPhone in the other... when a 148m tower is barely even noticed...
