City Under Construction: 23SEP16

It is not difficult to notice that Melbourne is a city under construction, facing one of it's biggest booms in history. Some of the changes are good, some of it bad but there is no arguing that our city will change dramatically in the not-so-distant future. Melbourne will be more vibrant as it becomes a 24/7/365 city; teeming with residents, events, hospitality and late night shopping. Our skyline will become one of the most colourful and interesting in the World. I love documenting these changes so every now and then I will post updates of our city's transformation. Grab some lunch and enjoy the pics:
