The photos above don't show it, but in person they are really making their presence felt and are really bulking up this part of the city! surprise

Looks to me that the architects couldn't figure out a style to use. A big mess.

There are definitely things not to like about these, but the jury is still out for me. Either way, Melbourne Central is going to look a lot less lonely in a few years.

I actually don't mind these 2,they're nothing amazing but they're great compared to other Brady projects...they fill a nice gap. I love the bronze glass on the lower levels.

I think they are fine, Brady have far worse ones out there..

I know the blank concrete wall facing towards Elizabeth is necessary as it is on a boundary, and I know the Phillips Shirts site is likely to be redeveloped one day, but bloody hell that elevation is ugly. 128 metres of ugliness facing one of our key streets is very disappointing, it's a shame Brady weren't made to pretty it up a bit, but I spose pretty jump formed walls are a bit rare...

They should paint a cool mural on that blank wall and it could be used as a catalyst for more on other building's blank walls..

This morning. I'd be very surprised if they leave the core bare like that. Overall I quite like this. It has a borg like look to me.

Outside of the blank wall, i must say im pleasantly surprised by this one. Definitely one of the better Brady projects if not their best...shows promise for Vision I guess..

Development & Planning

Wednesday, December 13, 2017 - 12:00
The swirl of development activity in Footscray has found another gear as new projects are submitted for approval, or are on the verge of beginning construction. Two separate planning applications have been advertised by Maribyrnong City Council; their subsequent addition to the Urban Melbourne Project Database has seen the overall number of apartment developments within Footscray in development swell to 40.

Policy, Culture & Opinion

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.

Transport & Design

Infrastructure Victoria unveiled a new round of research into its larger programme of work dealing with managing transport demand. The authority contracted Arup and KPMG to produce the Melbourne Activity Based Model (MABM) and while it is new, it is considered fit for purpose in the strategic context.

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.
