Very nice, I would rather see these shorter towers and a big focus on the street level. I'm not a fan of mandatory height limits in FB, but I'm OK with it if leads to quality projects like these going up.

Nah.. the row of four looks awful. Even if the buildings themselves are quality builds individually, the overall effect is just a shiny and soulless row.. all very docklands.. all very dull. They could at least *try* to make it look like they weren't all designed by the same guy to the same specifications.

I tentatively like no 5 though.

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”.
