This is now 50% sold and should start construction by May or June of this year.

Around November last year I noticed a soil testing rig set up in the former car yard next door to the former hotel.

 

Brady are good at marketing their developments, I can't see this not going ahead.

 

Just wish the podium car park looked better.

Welcome to the forum Charles! :) We will keep updating this project throughout the construction period through to completion, as we are with multiple other projects across metropolitan Melbourne.

Observe. Design. Build. Live.

Looks like they're digging for early archaeological works of graffiti.

I don't think it was ever meant to start in May. I was told some time ago that demo would start "mid year"...so they're pretty much on track.

Piling has started yet the old stork hotel building has not been demolished yet, wierd. Or have I missed something??

I think a lot of developers tend to do this.... they leave the "Sales" building to the absolute last minute before getting rid of it so they can continue selling the apartments while all the initial works are continuting around it.

Thats my gut feel

Probably dragging it out/waiting for Melbourne Star/Sky to finish so they can move the sales office there..

Development & Planning

Hot on the heels of news that Holiday Inn will anchor Werribee's tallest proposed development, the application for 22-26 Synnot Street has gone to advertising. At over 42 metres in height and spread across a 2,567 square metre site the project is Werribee's largest, and accounts for the last of a trio of catalyst sites earmarked by Wyndham City Council as perfect for urban renewal.

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.

Late last year Urban Melbourne was invited for a tour of the new offices of CAPI in Windsor and a chat with its founder Pitzy Folk. The 1930’s building now known as '151 Albert' had previously housed Telstra and has been refurbished by renowned interior designer and family friend of the Folk family, Tamsin Johnson into 1,400 sqm of office and break out space across two floors and a basement.

Likened in some quarters as a miniature Federation Square, construction works began last week on a Prahran project that will rank as one of 2018's most progressive and important. Kane Constructions has the job of transforming 30-40 Izett Street under a $60+ million urban renewal initiative prompted by Stonnington City Council.
