#1

323-331 La Trobe Street MELBOURNE VIC 3000
3/07/2013
Demolition of the existing building and the construction of a multi-storey building, and a waiver of the loading and unloading requirements

41L & 205 apartments - looks like another Rothe Lowman design next door to The Carlson

If all four proposals (Eporo Tower, The Carlson, 323 La Trobe Street and the Celtic Club Tower) are built, it would almost be a wall to wall skyscraper cliff edge on the south side of La Trobe Street between Elizabeth and Queen Streets.

 

Eporo

 

The Carlson

Celtic Club Tower

mmm quickly dirtying glass framed by cheap looking plasticy grey, so glad they are knocking down an art deco building and putting guilford lane into shadow for it

Could be an interesting building, but could be easily let down if cheap materials are used, will the blades be nice and metallic or cheap plasticy?
Want to also see the rear, as per this article we'll likely see Guildord lane lose a brick wall in favour of sterile loading bay

The renders look like it will be metallic (aluminium or stainless steel).

Different developers, same architect?

Different developers, same architect. Hutchinson are building 321 for $30.65M but are using 323 as site office for now

Watpac, HM, Hutchies, LU and Icon vying for 323 at the moment

unrealised scheme

So much heritage built fabric being lost in Melbourne now - its becoming a lost cause. We are fast realising the 'poor cousin to Europe or America' insecurity that led to all of this destruction through the devaluation of our local heritage in the first place - soon there really will be 'nothing special' about Melbourne in comparison with other world cities that have retained their links to the past.

^^ the frontage to la trobe is completely unremarkable right? its the laneway to the rear and loss of scale of the low-rise precinct that's a worry

^ Guildford lane being surrounded by concrete walls is a big worry. the frontage to La Trobe is a nice art deco garage building though, I'd like to see it stay and restored like many similar to it in North Melbourne with apartments behind the shell, but if it's being demolished it's not the worst tragedy.

Brunswick East's popularity continues to cut through with apartment buyers, as Jameson Capital has noted with the recent launch of B.E. Apartments. Acting as a capital partner to date, Jameson Capital has turned its hand to development with 11-15 Brunswick Road, a 1,724sqm site that is located in an already established apartment pocket.

No doubt about it, the emerging build-to-rent model has the property media in a tizz at the moment. What may in part become a solution to the housing and rental affordability dilemma has garnered immense media attention of late.

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.

Andréanne Doyon , RMIT University ; Joe Hurley , RMIT University ; Susie Moloney , RMIT University , and Trivess Moore , RMIT University Australia’s building and land-use policy settings fall well short of what’s needed to make meaningful progress toward creating sustainable cities. You will find environmental sustainability goals and objectives in government strategy documents.

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.
