Approved, but looks like amended plans were submitted last Decmeber:

"09/12/2014 Amendment to Application: Applcation amended under Section 50 of the Act to reduce the height of the tower, delete vehicular access from Dorcas Street, activate the podium with apartments, and to modify the car parking layout."

So not 29 levels now?

Not sure, considering the first post was made in October and the amendment was made in December, probs not

So it'll be similar in height to those cloned CE boxes, making a dodgy looking few blocks if all the buildings top out at the same height.

No need for the height to have been reduced.

Wynne seems to be forcing developers to lower their heights if they want approval.

It seems that way for other projects, the amendment was put in before Wynne returned to office though I think.

Richard Wynne was still in hospital in December 2014. But why let the facts get in the way?
No doubt he was slicing floors from skyscrapers from his hospital bed, such is his passion for doing so.

If we are demolishing perfectly good office buildings for high rise development, then clearly Melbourne is booming, for this type of demolition is not common at all, but is a clear indication of confidence in the market.

Lots of cladding and more glass.

Those panels look so good up close. Hopefully the style of clad gets a run elsewhere

It’s great to see our Vitrastone panels in Silver Travertine going up on this project (more info on the product can be found at: http://fv.com.au/product/vitrastone/). Can’t want to see it fully completed later this year. Here are some more pics from our team.

The tower dubbed 'Sol Invictus' may not have been conquered, but it is for sale. Long after the initial media blitz extolling the virtues of the tower, going hand in hand with an explanation of its name, the now approved 48 Moray Street has been handed to Colliers.

Policy, Culture & Opinion

Spring Street on Sunday unveiled its package of rental reforms that will see a variety of changes to the Residential Tenancies Act (1997). The state government has branded the reforms 'Rent Fair Victoria' and set up a website outlining the changes.

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.
