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)

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.
