Love the curves! cheeky

Dare I say it, if built, would probably look better than Prima/Pearl (one of its neighbours).

New application has been submitted for this with Schiavello apparently purchasing 17-23 Queensbridge Street - previously owned by Australand at some stage for Freshwater Place.
I have a feeling the design will have changed, with the application mentioning Disengo which is the architect of PDG, opposed to Bates Smart who have designed this tower. Disegno also designed Prima. I reckon with a bigger site, it could possibly be taller than the previous proposal too.

So is 23 Queensbridge "The Falls" or do I have the wrong spot? A combo on two with potential bigger setbacks would be ideal, and especially if even taller. I am a fan of the Bates Smart proposal though

It's the building in between this site and the Falls site.

Wow thanks just looking on Google Maps, QB incorporating a footprint all the way up to and including 23 Queensbridge is enormous. It's virtually the size of Eureka or Freshwater (including all it's base). Potentially something very exciting coming our way even though I love the current design :)

I think it is more likely that it will be shorter as they will be able to have larger floorplates. Hopefully I am proven wrong :-)

Thats a horrid thought, i'll be pleased too if you're ''proven wrong''

Looks like you might be proven wrong: "Australia's 2nd tallest building"...interesting.

Australia’s second-tallest building bulks up in new plan

Rebecca Thistleton

>Plans for one of Australia’s tallest buildings have been bulked up, with Schiavello and PDG now planning several towers and a hotel under a fresh, $350 million plan for their site in ­Melbourne’s Southbank.

>New plans, which include 604 apartments, 408 hotel rooms, 20 serviced apartments and 630 car spaces, include a ‘number of towers’.

>The main tower’s height has not changed from the approved 71 storeys. It will be Australia’s second-tallest building to roof height once finished.

>The project partners declined to comment on the amended plans, which have been designed by architectural firm Bates Smart and Disengo.

Wow multiple towers

Wow great news. That disproves Nicks theory then :-) wonder if they have adjusted the scheme and moved the tallest tower a bit further south to appease the South bank residents group (aka the West facing Freshwater Place residents group)? Looking forward to seeing the renders!!

Glad the Bates Smart tower is staying, guessing this will be next off the block once Prima/Abode get closer to finishing up.

I don't think it would be physically possible to get more than two towers on the site.

They had to move it 2 metres further from FWP as a condition of the planning permit.

They should have bought the falls site as well and build two massive twin towers :-)

Must be one of the most interestingly shaped floor plates going around. Looks great.

Walking along the Crown promenade will be amazing with this towering beauty looming overhead.
The new design reminds me of Lakeside in Chicago, beautiful..

Development & Planning

Wednesday, December 13, 2017 - 12:00
The swirl of development activity in Footscray has found another gear as new projects are submitted for approval, or are on the verge of beginning construction. Two separate planning applications have been advertised by Maribyrnong City Council; their subsequent addition to the Urban Melbourne Project Database has seen the overall number of apartment developments within Footscray in development swell to 40.

Policy, Culture & Opinion

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.

When a site spans 19,280 square metres, it becomes a 'district'. That's the case according to the development team behind the Jam Factory's pending overhaul. Reporting on the project to date has focused on the close to 60,000 square metres of new commercial space that is earmarked for the site, but more importantly from a layperson's perspective is the extensive new public realm that is planned as part of the development.

Sustainability & Environment

Cbus Property's office development for Medibank at 720 Bourke Street in Docklands recently became the first Australian existing property to receive a WELL Certification, Gold Shell and Core rating. The WELL rating goes beyond sustainable building features with a greater focus on the health and well-being of a building's occupants.
