Do the CE architects vie to be the best at mediocre design?

Yeah not sure there, because Doig Architecture has had this tower called Australis for long before the Victoria One name came around.
That being said, makes sense why they would change the name if that's what they planned on calling it. Wouldn't want my ugly green Victoria One tower up against a tall slender green nice looking Victoria One lol.

Pretty shocking but hopefully that podium turns out better than just precast.

the reference to Melbourne's lanes embossed on that podium particularly funny given the 2 bluestone lanes it's just destroyed

I don't know why they think the concrete crap on the top make it look better. At least if it was just a plain glass box it would be inoffensive and just blend in. Articulation for articulations sake is never a good idea.

Does anyone know the name(s) of the "designer(s)" of this? It would be appropriate to publish them on this blog so that they can get the recognition they deserve for their work!

Development & Planning

Wednesday, December 13, 2017 - 12:00
The swirl of development activity in Footscray has found another gear as new projects are submitted for approval, or are on the verge of beginning construction. Two separate planning applications have been advertised by Maribyrnong City Council; their subsequent addition to the Urban Melbourne Project Database has seen the overall number of apartment developments within Footscray in development swell to 40.

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.
