It's a shame to lose one of the liveliest sections of this part of La Trobe Street for this - as a model for "activating" previously dead spaces, the fantastic little Tokyo style plywood cafe here is the perfect piece of improvised urbanism. Can the new building incorporate something as great? ... of course not.

That lobby is embarrassing. Not as bad as the graphic panels on "You and I" in Collingwood, but embarrassing whitebread crass commercialism nevertheless.

That is a illustrative shop window display not the lobby :-)

Interesting, thank you. I looked at this site the other day, after I took a shot of 42, and wondered how it was going.

Long wait for this one, but they've finally started demolition. Another 140m filler in our NE hotspot, this is across the road from Atira's 131m student tower at 42-50 La Trobe, and half a block from Sapphire/Shangri La. Wesley Place is one block south. A VIMG project, I wonder if they waited for settlement on their Coventry Haus project, before firing the starting pistol on this one. Thanks PaPa for render.

Great news!

"A VIMG project, I wonder if they waited for settlement on their Coventry Haus project, before firing the starting pistol on this one"

From a funding perspective it would make sense because this one's been sold out for a while. Maybe two constructions loans going at once for the same developer was a bit hard to achieve in this market. Just speculating.

Yeah sold out for ages. They also have a few on the go in Sydney and Brisbane

What's the plot ratio on this one? It looks particularly tall and skinny.

It was submitted under one of the older schemes if I remember correctly. Could be wrong

A topic which rears its head at least once a year is the decking of the Jolimont railyards as a means of providing a stronger connection between the Melbourne CBD and the Yarra River, while adding to the city's open space network.
