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

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

Tuesday, February 21, 2017 - 06:00
Although applications for substantially tall apartment towers have eased over recent times within City of Stonnington, two current development applications across Prahran and South Yarra represent the next sling of smaller sized towers for the municipality. A 14 storey apartment building at 10-16 Cecil Place is being sought by Bensons Property Group.

On 2 January 2017, it was reported that several popular eateries and bars in Footscray had been vandalised, including the perennially successful 8 Bit Burgers on Droop Street, and Up In Smoke on Hopkins Street. 8 Bit had the warm new year's welcome gift of 14 smashed windows and the words “F**k off hipster scum” spray-painted on their entrance.

Once again Melbourne has turned it on for the spectacular cultural juggernaut that is White Night. A crowd of around 600,000 took part in the all night festival of projections, performances, artworks and installations. Stealing the show again this year was the extraordinary projections upon the Royal Exhibition Building.

McCorkell Constructions is in charge of the build that will deliver a new integrated educational and communal facility on the corner of Highett and Gleadell Street, Richmond. Designed by Hayball, Richmond High School as it has been labelled will be built for 650 students, and has an overall value of $43 million.

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).
