the 'design precedents' shown are probably a lot better architecture than the design, but I think it's nice the current late-deco block of flats is being replaced by something referencing more progressive architecture from the mid-century period

I think it's a good outcome. Reasonable setback from the main road and easily is better than what's currently there.

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.

Two important stories which traverse both transport and housing topic areas were highlighted on Urban Melbourne this week.

Once again Melbourne has turned it on for the spectacular cultural juggernaut that is White Night. A crowd of around 600,000 took part in the all night festival of projections, performances, artworks and installations. Stealing the show again this year was the extraordinary projections upon the Royal Exhibition Building.
