It's a chunky looking beast... surprised it only has 600 apartments.

It's not particularly attractive.. but then it's forgiven because it's next to the freeway.

By all means, glue some coloured panels to it, but I see nothing of substance that distinguishes this, architecturally speaking, from the CE standard-form buildings that are so reviled around these parts.

The only thing making it all look better than the Southbank-style average is the open space, which is absolutely a good thing. But those apartment layouts make it look very much like it's a low-end development to be pitched at the investment and overseas markets.

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...
