Looks good, the design gives you a sense of place.

Just wish it was twice as tall.

Completely agree with regards to the height. I am happy it is Under Construction. At least, it is getting built!

I actually like the height and the design on this one. I remember that the original proposal was going to a lot taller with a different graphic on the facade but the developers had to change their approach based on financial circumstances I assume.

Observe. Design. Build. Live.

Glad to see this development making progress. Its been on the drawing board for a long time and I thought it was never going to get built.

Great asset for the city.

An ad from 4/1/1890, so I would say that sign has been up there from as early as the 1880s.

Dr King's Australian Medical Institute was at the corner of Russell Street and Flinders Lane.

Gradually beginning to look forward to this - it took time to get over my disappointment about the classical bas relief wall being eliminated.

I presently still feel the discus thrower on the facade is a little indistinct - a bit like William Barack at Swanston Square up at CUB - but I hadn't seen that rather nice and classical sculpture render of the entrance of this before. It will still be a building with a feature element and signature to it I guess.

onwards and upwards

^^ Good progress.

Will be interesting to see how they fill all that space.

Not sure if I'm correct but I count another 20 floors to go for Abode.

If that's the case it'll look ENORMOUS from that intersection!

Development & Planning

Tuesday, December 12, 2017 - 00:00
City of Port Phillip will this week indicate that it has sufficient reason to object to two pending projects in Port Melbourne. 17 Rocklea Drive and 365-391 Plummer Street are both within the Wirraway Precinct of Fishermans Bend, and both projects are under the authority of the Minister for Planning.

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.
