Big thumbs up from me, though i am a little concerned about the northern facade as a large part of that wall will be concrete, but if it's painted black to suit the glass and other exteriors it should be ok.

Approved with "significant" height reduction according to Skyrise over at SSC (as well as the delegate's report).

Reduced by how much?

Not sure but this was quoted in the report:

"Although the informally amended plans improve elements of the development
including adopting a more distinctive podium/tower form, a reduction in the podium
height and minor increases to tower setbacks, it is considered that the changes do
not go far enough to warrant support. A significant reduction in building height,
increased tower setbacks, improved ground level and podium activation to
Gallaghers Place and improved urban design quality to the through block link are
required in order for the development to considered an acceptable outcome for this
site."

Seriously....how [email protected] annoying.
Why on earth would a 188m tower on this site require a "significant reduction in building height"???????

The permit issued by the Minister did not require the height of the tower to be reduced.

Last week's joint announcement by Planning Minister Richard Wynne, Premier Daniel Andrews and Lord Mayor Robert Doyle that the Amendment C245 planning controls have been adopted, paves the way for work to commence on the $250 million dollar redevelopment of the Queen Victoria Market. Concept for Munro site (subject to change).

It is so much easier to knock a building down than it is to build one. Building is a long and involved process of dreaming, planning, scheming, and the wonderfully gritty bit that is actually constructing a physical manifestation of these things, while getting rid of a building sometimes takes no more than a bit of paperwork, some heavy machinery, and the stroke of a pen.

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.
