#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.

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.

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”.

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).
