Tower submitted in 2011 & yet to receive approval, wonder why.....
The submission seems to be in limbo - offensively bad design

That is a seriously bad design…. Looks like it was designed in the mid 90’s… hrmmm, wonder if McBride Charles Ryan are up to anything??

Observe. Design. Build. Live.

I don't like how defined the threshold between low cost apartments and 'standard' apartments is, I think they could have been better integrated. It looks on first glance that they've just decided to chuck them on the arse-end of the project and add a bit of 'make-up'.

Also what is evident on the plans is the laneway bisecting the the site has been given over to car park access and bin storage. Seems like a bit of a missed opportunity. Not much you can do about the substation however.

The laneway inbetween is one of our best hidden street art locations, would hate to see it turned into another useless space for clean walls and substation/carpark.

Interesting to read that the departmental planning report recommended that this tower be approved. The planning minister ignored this advice and refused it anyway. Excellent decision.

Melbourne’s architectural landscape is a wonderful juxtaposition of modern and Victorian architecture. Although the CBD has been peppered with many skyscrapers, its historical structures have won Melbourne the title of “Australia’s most European city”.
