Agree Peter, I've noted over at skyscrapercity that there are plenty of people who don't like this one, dunno why, I think it's one of the most interesting towers going up at the moment.
On the other hand, to people who dont like the building your statement "A fitting statement in the built form for our architects" could be read as a back handed compliment to some architects who insist on inficting dross on our city :)
A fitting statement either way, well done!

it will stand out when its finished. its one of those skyscrapers that ordinary people who dont care about architecture will look up at and think 'wow - thats cool!" - and i like that :)

I love seeing a bit of creativity in any skyscraper design and this one fits the bill.

Not a huge fan of the front elevation, but the cut out parts really do add some great design elements.

The diversity of style this building brings to the city is priceless to me. Perhaps our signature style isn't a genre of architecture in itself or one particular style/look, as much as the willingness to experiment with bold new designs everywhere?

Looks really good! Also looks great when looking from Southbank, adds some diversity to the skyline. Anyone know whether the rooftop cinema/bar is still happening here?

Observe. Design. Build. Live.

Very interesting building. I like the adventurous path the architect took in designing this.

Development & Planning

Journal Student Living's move on 500 Swanston Street headlines a fresh drive of student accommodation projects looking to call Carlton home. The $60 build would be Journal's second Melbourne project after 18-32 Leicester Street which is in the hands of Icon Construction. Journal Student Living is backed by South African company Redefine Properties.

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.

When a site spans 19,280 square metres, it becomes a 'district'. That's the case according to the development team behind the Jam Factory's pending overhaul. Reporting on the project to date has focused on the close to 60,000 square metres of new commercial space that is earmarked for the site, but more importantly from a layperson's perspective is the extensive new public realm that is planned as part of the development.

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.
