I love a tall building as much as anyone but I absolutely detest this proposal.

This is one instance were I hope Wynne actually does go full karate chop mode.

I think it is perfect development for that site...funny how opinions brings the Tea House out of its misery, sitting there lonely on that busy intersection; one never notices the building anymore...but with this development I can see how it can bring it to life once again and gently nurture it under its auspices...great development in my eyes!

Not going to lie, that penthouse is seriously cool.

Yes, everyone should have a retreat within their master bedroom

Anyways no too much scope to shift the tower further south-west away from Tea House

I love how the 'plaza' they think will get them a tick for public benefit is actually just a driveway for cars.

^ Yeah was about to say the same. It's replacing like-for-like at best.

I'm still a bit torn on this one, however I would have to say that overall I think it is overdevelopment. Replacing the extension on the side I do not mind, but the tower is just too overbearing. Not a bad design overall, just not sold on it.

I'm actually surprised this hasn't been proposed much sooner. It makes sense.

Carolyn Whitzman , University of Melbourne Liveability is an increasingly important goal of Australian planning policy. And creating cities where residents can get to most of the services they need within 20 to 30 minutes has been proposed, at both federal and state level, as a key liveability-related mechanism.

Part Three follows on from the Part One: Yarra's Edge and Part Two: Victoria Harbour. The focus of today's piece will be NewQuay and Harbour Town, the northern most precincts within Docklands. NewQuay NewQuay was the first precinct to open way back in 2003 and has probably evolved the most.
