thought id start a thread on high density photos
please post what you have. The GC skyline appears wide op from side on but if you take a photo from north or south it appears very dense. love those shots.

ill start with sydney, home to over 800 skyscrapers packed in 1.5km x 3km block.
thanks to flickr

how packed does this look?? may 10,2007


World tower @ 230m doesnt really have much impact




some photos from a year ago from 153m high summit restaurant









Westpac is nearly 500ft high to roof but doesnt look it due to its size and 100m+ blocks surrounding it.



looking down on 50m highrise

All my photo's I have are of individual buildings or construction sites. May take some over the week showing the density.

Melbourne is dense from a distance, but up close you can see that there is not that much denisty in comparison to Sydney; I think it has probably to dow withthe fact that Sydney has more buildings and is narrower in width than Melbourne CBD, but also because Melbourne has much wider roads than it's northern cousin. I think the densist part of Melbourne is that stretch from Southbank down to St Kilda Junction, bounded by St Kilda Rd and Kingway; granted the buildings aren't as tall in general as in the CBD but there is certainly a lot of offices and apartment buildings crammed into that couple of miles.

Doesn't show density that well, but cool pic:



Old panoramic:



So dense you can't see passed the building next door...



Kidding, BNE isn't that dense, I'll get another pic up soon..

You hit the nail on the head!
Melbourne will never be as dense as say Sydney or Brisbane in the future.
And I for one dont care one bit I would rather have nice wide open streets than a closed in dark and windswept concrete jungle anytime.:cheers:

I'm one Melbourne resident who disagrees - not about street width, but certainly in terms of desiring density. I think it would be awesome if Melbourne was more "concrete jungle"-esque. Or maybe just if the CBD was way bigger.
