The city centre has benefited from people making it their home, bringing it back to life at all hours so it is no longer just the business centre of a dormitory metropolis. There are now fewer dead parts to the city. Relaxed licensing laws have resulted in a proliferation of small bars, cafes and restaurants that keep the city active.
Seems that half of Melbourne is posting in the Urban Showcase now, the more the merrier.
Great way to start off a thread Pete, your postcards on Melbourne series will be one I watch with interest and vigour. In four years time you'll have to come back and edit the CUB complex into the above post.
Ugh. I am so jealous that I don't live in Melbourne. Every single thread just makes it look more and more amazing. It seems to me, even more so than some of the bigger cities, to be the shining example of urbanism and city life in the 21st century.
