The site next door at 58 Queens Bridge Street is the best site left on Southbank.

Huge site with views across the low rise section of Crown to the CBD and the PANS-OPS above the site is 315m :-)

CoM have recommended this for approval.

Great news, top quality.

It's funny how a 180 meter tower of this quality won't even really stand out too much on the skyline once it is completed.

Probably means a redesign, shame.

Was looking forward to this one but I suspect they may update the proposal to include extra height and perhaps another hotel component since it is so close to Crown and the convention/exhibition centre.

Chinese give Southbank the flip
In a blatant example of developer flipping, the new Chinese owner of a Southbank development site is selling just six months after receiving ministerial approval to replace the land with a 55-level, 295-unit apartment tower.
Moreover, Financial Fook only settled on 84-90 Queensbridge Street last month after agreeing to buy it in February for $18 million.
At the time the lucrative permit application had been lodged but not approved by the Planning Minister Matthew Guy. The landmark tower will be prominent, the site also abutting the West Gate Freeway.
Predictably, CBRE is marketing the land as 88 Queensbridge Street – eight being considered a lucky number in China.

Chinese developer flips Southbank site for tidy profit

A Chinese developer has sold a $22 million project in Melbourne’s Southbank to another Chinese investor, collecting a 20 per cent profit in less than a year.

Starryland Australia, a subsidiary of Hong Kong-based Financial Fook and ultimately controlled by Chinese listed conglomerate Hubei Fuxing Science and Technology Co, took control of the site at 84-90 Queensbridge Street for $18 million at the start of this year.

In May, the developer won approval for a 54-level tower with 295 units, designed by architects Rothe Lowman.

The 940-square-metre site, now known as 88 Queensbridge Street, comprises two separate office buildings near the Crown Casino and opposite the Kings Way bridge. It was acquired by an Australian-based developer from Chengdu in China.

Hopefully the new owners take this to sales this year:

Looks like there could be some movement with this one.

PDS Group posted an Instagram photo with the caption that they've just announced a partnership with "Shengle" (I assume that's the new developer), for their new development on Queensbridge St.

No street address given but I assume it's this one.

Does no one else grow tired of this constant flipping? It literally shows that our asian driven boom is nothing but a cash cow.

^^ Flipped once to developer who is about to deliver the tower.

As an aside property development is intended to be a cash cow for private enterprise, whether it's inner city high-rise or crappy suburban fringe detached developments. Defeats the purpose if it's not.

MCC recommending rejection.

I thought this was already approved by Guy?

EDIT: they want to go up to 200m.

MCC's shit quality uploads of the elevations are hard to make out, I think it's 209.63m AHD(Anyone else confirm?) and 1.1m from lobby entrance on Queensbridge St.

So 208.5m and 61L

Yeah looks right. The podium has been sharpened up

Looks like they're keen to get this one going, already at sales. A couple more renders:

Brunswick's Anstey Precinct is in for a massive shot of development as Melbourne's Nightingale Housing plans seven separate buildings in a project that will be dubbed Nightingale Village. Already accustomed to urban renewal, the area surrounding Anstey Station is set to benefit from the unprecedented move by Nightingale Housing to develop what amounts to an entire street.

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.

Spring Street has released details of a large shutdown of the Pakenham/Cranbourne and Frankston lines which will allow workers to complete major upgrades to the rail infrastructure. The work is required to allow for the introduction of the new High Capacity Metro Trains (HCMTs) and will involve upgrading power & catenary, signalling and communications equipment in the Dandenong (Pakenham/Cranbourne) corridor.

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.
