2nd and 4th pics show more detail over the others. somewhat bland from a distance, but i think there's a heap of detail lost in the renders above

Street level looks ok'ish, but those renders and angles make the towers look so nasty like some of the worst crap being built in Chatswood Sydney.

AN unlikely developer consortium made up of a Melbourne lawyer turned winemaker and two car salesmen has filed plans for a $1 billion-plus, 2300 apartment development proposal in Melbourne's Fishermans Bend precinct - the third-largest apartment project proposed for Melbourne.

Consortium partners lawyer George Kefford and car dealership owners Gary Brill and John Eyre are seeking a permit to build six apartment towers on two adjoining blocks of land on Ingles and Turner streets in the industrial area that was rezoned into five residential suburbs last year.

Kefford, who also owns Merricks Estate Wine and Winery in Victoria, and Brill and Eyre, who jointly own a host of car dealerships around Melbourne, have asked the state government to approve their development on the two sites that sit behind Mirvac's successful Array apartment project in the new suburb of Lorimer, which was previously a part of Port Melbourne.

More height, less bulk would be a good outcome.

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.

Sustainability & Environment

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.
