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.

Development & Planning

Friday, January 20, 2017 - 00:00
A rush of planning applications either side of the festive break are cumulatively seeking to add to South Melbourne's robust development scene, with four major apartment projects lodged. City of Port Phillip will now assess the respective merits of the fresh applications, along with a handful of other noteworthy towers already at planning that when combined, would provide the popular suburb with thousands of new apartments.

Policy, Culture & Opinion

On 2 January 2017, it was reported that several popular eateries and bars in Footscray had been vandalised, including the perennially successful 8 Bit Burgers on Droop Street, and Up In Smoke on Hopkins Street. 8 Bit had the warm new year's welcome gift of 14 smashed windows and the words “F**k off hipster scum” spray-painted on their entrance.

Melbourne’s architectural landscape is a wonderful juxtaposition of modern and Victorian architecture. Although the CBD has been peppered with many skyscrapers, its historical structures have won Melbourne the title of “Australia’s most European city”.

Sustainability & Environment

Timber mid-rise buildings are becoming the preferred choice for many stakeholders in Melbourne, due to a combination of factors, including cost-effectiveness, liveability, ease and efficiency of construction. Within the recent National Construction Code change, Deemed-To-Satisfy provisions allow mid-rise timber construction for buildings up to 25 metres “effective height” (typically, eight storeys).
