Mixed Use

One of the best tower applications i've seen, should get approved easily.

I think Daryl Jackson's have excelled themselves here, particularly as a response to the limitations of the site. The thing is they have differentiated the high rise so well from the surrounding commercial buildings and apartments towers. Both elegant and appealing - assuming all goes well, it could just be the best-looking new building in the CBD IMO.

I've been thinking on this building for the past 24 hours and just get more pleased about it. It's a ripper!

The site of a historic women's venereal disease clinic in Little Lonsdale Street will be reborn as a 32-storey ''vertical campus'' for Victoria University, the latest tower proposal approved by the state government.

Planning Minister Matthew Guy said the redevelopment, expected to cost about $100 million, would enable more than 25,000 students to attend the university, and was in keeping with the heritage value of the site.

Great news! Certainly going to add a bit of foot traffic to the area and really add to the skyline! Awesome :)

Observe. Design. Build. Live.

You'd have to say that blanking out the Brady Apt eastern wall is the best outcome!

Shame about the loss of their views though...:)

Gosh guys I don't know about this one.
Seems a bit ugly to me.
However, great for the Uni to be getting a new building.

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”. Perhaps the most striking example of this juxtaposition between old and new is the Coops Shot...
