VIC: Residential site sale, 42-48 Balston Street, Southbank, Melbourne THE AUSTRALIAN NOVEMBER 07, 2013 3:59PM AN OFFSHORE Chinese developer has purchased a residential development site in Melbourne's Southbank for $6.9 million. The sale follows a trend of offshore developers purchasing sites in the Melbourne CBD, Southbank and Docklands for apartment towers. The 1455sq m site was sold with plans and a permit for a two-tower apartment project comprising 348 apartments over 37 levels. Colliers International agent Matt Stagg said: "The offshore developer was drawn to the site largely because the completed tower will boast outstanding views of Port Phillip Bay, Albert Park Lake and the Melbourne CBD."

Buchan Group aren't exactly bad architects, so I have hope that this might turn out better than renders suggest but who knows..

Fits in perfectly with the rest of the Central Equity shitsville that now proudly comprises our glorious city's entire southern skyline vista.

The buyer of that grade carpark really needs to do something spectacular.

The central equity development area (shitsville) really needs some rejuvenation, with some exciting design.

What a wasteland to build in. CE has ruined the area and this is actually midly interesting (nothing to cheer about though)

The New Urban Agenda was officially adopted in Quito, Ecuador in the last plenary of the Habitat III conference. The agenda provides a 20-year “roadmap” to guide sustainable urban development globally. The text of the New Urban Agenda itself was agreed well before Habitat III at the UN General Assembly in September, during an extraordinary informal negotiation session that lasted for more than 30 hours.

Visual Melbourne

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”.

Melbourne’s tram network may hold the key to providing the dense network of high frequency rapid transport that would provide world class connectivity in the inner-city and CBD. Melbourne and New York are very different cities. Drawing too close a parallel between any two cities can be a folly; however New York and Melbourne share some near similarities where it counts.

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).
