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."

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.
