I heard today that it was the coldest morning in 11 years! Hope everyone had their thermal undies on!

The last summer we had was definitely the coolest I have experienced since moving into the city almost 10 years ago, we didn't even use the air conditioner once!

Our ample sized north facing terrace has been blessed with abundant healthy growth in all our potted plants.

In the previous years we've lost plants from excessive heat, but not this time, they all received just the right amount of everything they needed.smiley

Even our street trees have shown no new dry dead branches!

Anyone else experience something similar?

I collect, therefore I am.

I think of the summer just gone as an average one, a summer I remember from childhood, not a 'cool' summer, it just didn't have the extremes like we have the past few years.

I grew up about 200m above sea level so it was always different (However slight) to people who grew up in the city proper, but I always remember it was 1 average/cool summer to 2 hot/extreme summers.

And more recently people have been whinging about the up and down temperatures of March/April..... it's autumn, it's always up and down!

Maybe I'm just getting old.

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.

Infrastructure Victoria unveiled a new round of research into its larger programme of work dealing with managing transport demand. The authority contracted Arup and KPMG to produce the Melbourne Activity Based Model (MABM) and while it is new, it is considered fit for purpose in the strategic context.

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.
