Looking forward to this blocking the hideous Adina building from view as you head into the city from the east. devil

That's so insanely thin!

Now, can some developer purchase and demolish the Adina building next door please.

Very eccentric - but I was pleased to drive past the other day and see Lou Richards's old pub and the press bar there remembered in the name. The Phoenix was a rite of passage for me.

10 storeys to go still as well!

Not sure if anyone's pointed it out but the pin holes in the eastern wall are clearly the connection points for the 'snake' feature that will run up the entire facade.

i suspect i'm one of the few that thinks this development is inappropriate, amongst other things the rear facing 11Ex is basically sheer concrete. having said that one apartment per floor is althgether cool

I agree Mark....I like the tower renders, but I hate how this will be in the way of the Mercer building which I love.

Also agree. It's going to require an extremely high and unique finish for me to justify ruining the stepped up look currently in place. I hope we're pleasantly surprised but not overly convinced at this point.

Couple of other renders for Phoenix:

Wasn't a fan of this one, at least from the first design plans - it was straight up from the ground, no setbacks, interrupting the nice regular height streetsccape of Flinders Street, some old buildings, some podiums, a great edge to the city.

So, pleased to see now under construction that it has got a sort of podium, and a sort of setback at 5th floor level, exactly matching Adina oddly enough, rather than the Cricket Association building next door, which is more likely to last into the future (especially now it has an HO).

Searched and searched, but couldn't find any renders other than the side view perspective, and the front view that is the first post - so am still in the dark exactly how the sort of bay windows and balconies will look and whether on boundary line or not -though looks like they are - and now I see that is only a sort of podium, but sticking out over the building line, then there's a setback, then a set-in, and then forward to building line again ! Tell me if Im wrong.

Taken yesterday during the rain so not a great shot by any stretch of the imagination.
I'm struggling with this one at the moment but I'm wise enough to wait till the finished product.

Just another view of an interesting development.

This is looking suitably strange. I like it!

Hmmmm, I'm not really sure what to think yet.....but it's certainly got me interested.

The blue fluoro tube decoration is going to make this building a little more than just interesting.

I'm quite certain that once completed, this building will be another asset to Melbourne's built environment. smiley

I agree 100%.
Plus the blue tubing will glow at night

This could very well end up being one of our most interesting buildings when finished. The blue ribbon dramatically changes the look and feel to me

Development & Planning

Journal Student Living's move on 500 Swanston Street headlines a fresh drive of student accommodation projects looking to call Carlton home. The $60 build would be Journal's second Melbourne project after 18-32 Leicester Street which is in the hands of Icon Construction. Journal Student Living is backed by South African company Redefine Properties.

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.
