Nice tower, big for this location, stuff like this used to be unprecedented for this part of town... not any more. This is directly behind the welsh church so hopefully the south side of the tower and especially the podium are decent. Site is currently occupied by a single level warehouse that is currently used for parking.

Shades of Prima Tower in the way the floor plates transition from deflecting inwards to outwards.

Looks fantastic! Could easily fit into Southbank. A new design direction for Elenberg Fraser it appears.

Observe. Design. Build. Live.

surprise WOW!!

This area of the city is definitely going gangbusters at the moment.

Design can be described as a Prima sibling with a definite new direction in style from Elenberg Fraser.

I think we are incredibly spoilt here at the moment with EF, FK, BS, McBride Charles Ryan and Rothelowman to name just a few. There appears to be a real attempt to design and sculpt which must be difficult given restrictions on cost in this country. It looks like another interesting and quality design. Well done

Who needs "stararchitects" when we have our own home grown architects..

Take the RL at the lowest entry point to the building and subtract it from the RL to the top of lift OR.

They are definitely fitting out 127 A'beckett street as a display suite (unless the site workers are getting a fully furnished kitchen and living area as a lunch room :-) but there is no signage so it could be for another development?

Development & Planning

Friday, December 9, 2016 - 08:00
Ballarat's station precinct is set to be transformed, following last week's announcement that the Pellicano Group has been awarded the rights to develop a new conference centre and hotel facility.

Policy, Culture & Opinion

The New Urban Agenda was officially adopted in Quito, Ecuador in the last plenary of the Habitat III conference. The agenda provides a 20-year “roadmap” to guide sustainable urban development globally. The text of the New Urban Agenda itself was agreed well before Habitat III at the UN General Assembly in September, during an extraordinary informal negotiation session that lasted for more than 30 hours.

Visual Melbourne

Wednesday, August 31, 2016 - 17:00
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”.

Transport & Design

Melbourne’s tram network may hold the key to providing the dense network of high frequency rapid transport that would provide world class connectivity in the inner-city and CBD. Melbourne and New York are very different cities. Drawing too close a parallel between any two cities can be a folly; however New York and Melbourne share some near similarities where it counts.

Sustainability & Environment

Timber mid-rise buildings are becoming the preferred choice for many stakeholders in Melbourne, due to a combination of factors, including cost-effectiveness, liveability, ease and efficiency of construction. Within the recent National Construction Code change, Deemed-To-Satisfy provisions allow mid-rise timber construction for buildings up to 25 metres “effective height” (typically, eight storeys).
