There's a good reason why there aren't many renders of this building floating about:

Ah so THAT'S what's going here!

Have been wondering ever since they put that crane up!

Thanks Ryan!

I had been wondering what was going here since they dug out the basement 3 years ago......

This won't be a good outcome once viewed from swanston st/library. That beautiful bronze glass of A'beckett tower will be forever lost :(

^^ I like the neighbouring buildings in that area, so I hope this does not bring along further buildings which takes away the character.

A few concrete blocks with patterns is not exactly looking too promising. but the laneway bridge looks interesting.

Both pretty crap designs for a central location. and hope no more of the character buildings in Lt La Trobe go, but none are heritage listed so it's likely

There's a problem of complete lack of setbacks happening more and more, particularly in the 'little' streets and lanes where human scale should be paramount

Development & Planning

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.

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.
