They are re-developing the display office which has been empty onsite for a few years now. It is getting a big 'curved' metal awning-like structure on the corner and looks like it is being expanded a bit.

Carrington Road is already backed up due to the busses, cars and deliveries. Will be interesting to see how they pull this one off.

Didn't get a photo as I went by, but the display suite is well under construction and large hoardings are up out the front.

Jeff Xu: Melbourne apartment market strong

Melbourne-based Chinese developer Golden Age insists the Melbourne apartment market is still healthy after launching its landmark Box Hill project, Sky One, over the weekend, shrugging off recent concerns about price falls.

The company is also expecting to launch a luxury apartment development in Sydney’s Rocks district later this year while chasing more projects in the country’s two biggest cities, according to founder and managing director Jeff Xu.

“We are very happy about the sales in the Sky One project in Box Hill over the weekend,” Mr Xu told The Australian. “It is a testament to what we are good at, and proves the demand for quality apartments in Melbourne is still strong.”

Sky One, located at 545 Station Street, is a 36-storey, 122.8 metre apartment tower that will be home to 438 apartments above a three-level food emporium and health, wellbeing and beauty hub. It is Golden Age’s second project in Box Hill.

Eighty-five per cent of stage one was sold on the weekend launch, totalling over $140 million, the company said, noting strong interest from the local market.

“In regards to the property market, what I want to say is the market is not crazy any more, but it is still very strong and healthy. And the huge success of Sky One is a great example,” he said.

Hurrah. I first worked on this site about 7/8 years ago when the first tower proposal was coming to light (working for a referral authority)

Great to see physical work start.

Thanks Mark - I train/tram through Box Hill all the time now so will be able to provide some regular updates once it's above ground - as noted it's a real bee hatch to get shots of the pit from ground level its boarded up so well.

Development & Planning

Monday, December 11, 2017 - 12:00
Brunswick's Anstey Precinct is in for a massive shot of development as Melbourne's Nightingale Housing plans seven separate buildings in a project that will be dubbed Nightingale Village. Already accustomed to urban renewal, the area surrounding Anstey Station is set to benefit from the unprecedented move by Nightingale Housing to develop what amounts to an entire street.

Policy, Culture & Opinion

The marriage of old and new can be a difficult process, particularly when the existing structure has intrinsic heritage value. In previous times Fitzroy's 237 Napier Street served as the home of furniture manufacturer C.F. Rojo and Sons. Taking root during 1887, Christobel Rojo oversaw operations though over time the site would become home to furniture manufacturer Thonet.

The former site of John Batman's home, Batman's Hill is entering the final stages of its redevelopment. Collins Square's final tower has begun its skyward ascent, as has Lendlease's Melbourne Quarter Commercial and Residential precinct already. Melbourne Quarter's first stage is at construction and involves a new 12-storey home for consultancy firm Arup along with a skypark.

Spring Street has released details of a large shutdown of the Pakenham/Cranbourne and Frankston lines which will allow workers to complete major upgrades to the rail infrastructure. The work is required to allow for the introduction of the new High Capacity Metro Trains (HCMTs) and will involve upgrading power & catenary, signalling and communications equipment in the Dandenong (Pakenham/Cranbourne) corridor.

Sustainability & Environment

Cbus Property's office development for Medibank at 720 Bourke Street in Docklands recently became the first Australian existing property to receive a WELL Certification, Gold Shell and Core rating. The WELL rating goes beyond sustainable building features with a greater focus on the health and well-being of a building's occupants.
