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

Giancorp Property Group is looking to rework their Moonee Ponds mixed-use development, refining the previously approved scheme with the help of Buchan Group as project architect. Located in a burgeoning development precinct immediately south of Puckle Street, 17-23 Puckle Street and 6-14 Young Street will see two separate buildings developed, with the taller spanning 16 levels.

It is so much easier to knock a building down than it is to build one. Building is a long and involved process of dreaming, planning, scheming, and the wonderfully gritty bit that is actually constructing a physical manifestation of these things, while getting rid of a building sometimes takes no more than a bit of paperwork, some heavy machinery, and the stroke of a pen.

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.
