Saw this render of it at the Central Equity stall at the Chinese New Year festival thing that Crown has, took a quick snap while I walked past.

Most of Central Equity buildings are plain and looks devoid of quality. However, most of their projects seem to be built.

I personally would be embarrassed to say I owned a CE apartment. Totally agree with the previous comment.

Cheap and nasty...

The reason they get built is due to the fact they are cheap and lack anything that will add to their cost.

Its a pity.

Do you ever look at marketing material and just ask...what? Ie. "Multi Award Winners"
No clarification which awards they're referring to. Certainly no Australian Architecture Awards from what I know. Even with a tight budget it's not that hard to differentiate a design. Or is it planning approval that's ultimately to blame?

no awards for external design thats for sure. they occury a certain segment of the market and have a successful formula, be thankful their designs in recent years have improved dramatically. 2011 Victorian Apartment Project of the Year was one of their awards.

this may make some people smirk, http://www.austcham.org/node/759

Would be nice if the podium had an apartment wrap at least, but so glad there will be some retail finally along that stretch. This plus the cafe going in at Wrap should help being a little bit of life to the area at least.

Definitely not offensive.

Observe. Design. Build. Live.

I am amazed they've sold enough of these already to warrant construction.

Development & Planning

Wednesday, December 13, 2017 - 12:00
The swirl of development activity in Footscray has found another gear as new projects are submitted for approval, or are on the verge of beginning construction. Two separate planning applications have been advertised by Maribyrnong City Council; their subsequent addition to the Urban Melbourne Project Database has seen the overall number of apartment developments within Footscray in development swell to 40.

Policy, Culture & Opinion

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.

Transport & Design

Infrastructure Victoria unveiled a new round of research into its larger programme of work dealing with managing transport demand. The authority contracted Arup and KPMG to produce the Melbourne Activity Based Model (MABM) and while it is new, it is considered fit for purpose in the strategic context.

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.
