This is one I'm looking forward to, Elenberg Fraser's best design so far in my humble opinion! yes

Construction very likely to start this year with the demolition of the existing building.

Retail in the current building seem to be closing down at the moment, demolition shouldn't be too far off.

Not many buildings stir my soul but this is certainly one of them. Looking forward to this with a great deal of anticipation.

This is going to be quite a long and agonising process....but great to see the start of some action nonetheless

Demolition of a site like that must be a huge challenge. Good luck to them.

Really looking forward to this one going up. A true landmark design.

This is the next one on my 'must watch' list after Prima Pearl. The design is something special.

^^ Ditto everyone! smiley

What about that lane in the last photo?

Looks like it's just a lane, no bars, shops or street art.

This is not Sydney, we can't have that here! wink

Delta's been gutting the insides while dramas happen. Wish they'd bring in the big wrecking ball like the good old days :D

Also quite a tight site, with trees lining both foothpaths and overhead tram wires. Probably put in a over Queens street gantry

^^ The demolition process was dictated by the fact that there was a lot of asbestos in the building.

Thankyou for the great rendering Laurence. yessmileyyes

According to Glenn Wilson (on SSC), this one could be shelved entirely should the dispute with the neighbouring owner drag on past June.

Was really looking forward to this one... :(

Development & Planning

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.

Spring Street has released details of a large shutdown of the Pakenham/Cranbourne and Frankston lines which will allow workers to complete major upgrades to the rail infrastructure. The work is required to allow for the introduction of the new High Capacity Metro Trains (HCMTs) and will involve upgrading power & catenary, signalling and communications equipment in the Dandenong (Pakenham/Cranbourne) corridor.

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.
