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

Designed by Bruce Henderson Architects, the proposal includes 14 levels with ground floor retail and over 100 apartments. Orion Group International is the proponent. A spokesperson for Orion confirmed more than 50% of the building's apartments will have a 2 bedroom configuration and a healthy number of 1 and 3 bedroom configurations.

Toorak Park is the outcome of a decade of development overtones for an expansive and formerly underutilised site abutting Toorak Station. Few projects across Melbourne are larger in terms of site size, with developer Lendlease over recent months applying the finishing touches to 446 apartments and 18 townhouses across a host of buildings.

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.

First mooted early last year, the long awaited facelift to Rebecca Walk looks set to proceed following a call out for "40 energetic street food traders" back in January of this year and planning approvals. New plans were conceived for the largely empty row of pods which occupy the under croft of the Flinders St Viaduct adjacent to Batman Park on the CBD's Northbank.

The recent BDAV Building Design Awards once more showcased the talents and expertise of Victoria's building designers. 2017 was the 22nd year of the BDAV Design Awards, which aims to "profile excellence in building design, as well as profiling the importance of the building design profession to both the building industry and to the broader community." One project that ticked the boxes was Green Edge.
