Yes it sure is a great addition to St Kilda Road....l have notice that a lot of office blocks are being converted or bulldoze on St Kilda Road, to apartments blocks....l often wonder if the same thing will happen on Royal Parade and Fleminton Road, Parkvile, and Victoria Parade, Fitzroy and Collingwood.

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.
