1 Malop street Geelong Quintessential Equity office tower progress

1 Malop street is really taking shape! After returning to Geelong from an overseas trip, the recently installed crane is a big feature in the skyline already! I didn't get a chance to upload some photos a month ago of the facading of this heritage TGM building, a point of interest for many people in Geelong but realising there was no public photos available I had a blast yesterday taking these photos.

As I see so many of you from Melbourne put lots of energy into capturing progress of many developments, I've been inspired as a highschool student from Geelong to capture this moment in Geelong's history.

With the last engine rolling off the line a few days ago and ford producing their last vehicles in their local factories in the coming few weeks, we're in a bold new era for the city and this huge feature is sure to attract attention. The building will eventually host worksafe vic head offices with the entire workforce making the move from Melbourne. Whilst in the short term the benefits may not seem massive, I am so happy to see my awesome city supported in this way with this investment.

I'm not interested in the state politics of the day, but I believe this design/site was one of the best out of a number of proposals and I'm pleased we're being supported by agencies signing up as 'anchor tenants', hopefully this attracts more private companies to occupy tenancies in the buildings, this site has about 3 floors vacant for that.

Once again Melbourne has turned it on for the spectacular cultural juggernaut that is White Night. A crowd of around 600,000 took part in the all night festival of projections, performances, artworks and installations. Stealing the show again this year was the extraordinary projections upon the Royal Exhibition Building.

Comment Sub-optimal outcomes, perceived or otherwise, were always going to be included in the wider level crossing removal project, and Buckley Street in Essendon just so happens to be one of them. In 2015, Urban Melbourne took a look at the Moonee Valley-led council proposal to remove the level crossing at Buckley Street and apply a new structure plan to Essendon.

Victoria Walks, a walking promotion charity supported by VicHeath, is leading a crowdsourcing initiative that is supported by the State Government and 14 councils. The campaign aims to collect and analyse opinions on walking right across the Melbourne metropolitan area. The authorities are asking people to indicate their walking safety concerns through an interactive online map on CrowdSpot's platform.
