Updated render with all 5 office towers:

I hope they've retained that faceted facade on Building 4C from the previous renders.

Also based on the precinct massing you'd hope that Site 5B + 6 would be a step up in height from Collins Square - otherwise I think there's a danger of creating a blob on the skyline.

I'm really looking forward to the retail component in this one, as I work across the road, but I can't tell if they're going to wait until all the towers are in before getting started.

Incorrect inform -- ps -cl : attach. Streets clear. No danger.

Will be interesting to see how the retail section goes. Given that there seem to be many vacant shops around at this point in time, it certainly raises a few questions.

Yes, there will be more 9-5 traffic because of the new offices, but there is very little in the way of residential planned around that area. Maybe that will change with the proposed development site next door (Lend Lease?). It will further enhance the chances of making this space a hub.

KPMG weighs up Collins St options

Financial services firm KPMG has a short list of potential sites in Melbourne which meet its 30,000sqm requirements. If it was to move to Lang Walker’s Collins Square development in Docklands, it would be sufficient to drive the development of a third commercial building at the site.

That WTC proposal for KPMG looks amazing. I agree, build that one.

The new Collins Square tower will start getting being filled with new tenants next week. More life to come around that area.

Quote from todays AFR

The latest tower in the massive Melbourne project – considered one of the largest private undertakings in the country – has attracted interest from the likes of accounting firms PwC and KPMG, as well as the ANZ.

Mr Walker confirmed the complex had been short-listed by a number of tenants.

“We’re working very, very hard to convert some of the short-listed positions into pre-commitments.”

According to the article I just posted in the commercial thread, KPMG are likely to lease space in this development. Although it does mention that they may also still stay where they are.
Here's hoping they kick off the big tower behind Mercer. http://www.theaustralian.com.au/business/property/rent-fears-trigger-for...

On 2 January 2017, it was reported that several popular eateries and bars in Footscray had been vandalised, including the perennially successful 8 Bit Burgers on Droop Street, and Up In Smoke on Hopkins Street. 8 Bit had the warm new year's welcome gift of 14 smashed windows and the words “F**k off hipster scum” spray-painted on their entrance.

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”.

Timber mid-rise buildings are becoming the preferred choice for many stakeholders in Melbourne, due to a combination of factors, including cost-effectiveness, liveability, ease and efficiency of construction. Within the recent National Construction Code change, Deemed-To-Satisfy provisions allow mid-rise timber construction for buildings up to 25 metres “effective height” (typically, eight storeys).
