Good to see FB moving, although I must ask, given that all the renders I've seen have not shown the south-facing aspect. Is this to be yet another giant concrete slap in the face?

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.
