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)

Hot on the heels of news that Holiday Inn will anchor Werribee's tallest proposed development, the application for 22-26 Synnot Street has gone to advertising. At over 42 metres in height and spread across a 2,567 square metre site the project is Werribee's largest, and accounts for the last of a trio of catalyst sites earmarked by Wyndham City Council as perfect for urban renewal.

The marriage of old and new can be a difficult process, particularly when the existing structure has intrinsic heritage value. In previous times Fitzroy's 237 Napier Street served as the home of furniture manufacturer C.F. Rojo and Sons. Taking root during 1887, Christobel Rojo oversaw operations though over time the site would become home to furniture manufacturer Thonet.

The former site of John Batman's home, Batman's Hill is entering the final stages of its redevelopment. Collins Square's final tower has begun its skyward ascent, as has Lendlease's Melbourne Quarter Commercial and Residential precinct already. Melbourne Quarter's first stage is at construction and involves a new 12-storey home for consultancy firm Arup along with a skypark.

Late last year Urban Melbourne was invited for a tour of the new offices of CAPI in Windsor and a chat with its founder Pitzy Folk. The 1930’s building now known as '151 Albert' had previously housed Telstra and has been refurbished by renowned interior designer and family friend of the Folk family, Tamsin Johnson into 1,400 sqm of office and break out space across two floors and a basement.

Likened in some quarters as a miniature Federation Square, construction works began last week on a Prahran project that will rank as one of 2018's most progressive and important. Kane Constructions has the job of transforming 30-40 Izett Street under a $60+ million urban renewal initiative prompted by Stonnington City Council.
