^^ Nice, but I would have added a bit more colour. smiley

Must add that the overall heights and shapes are excellent, especially the tall building anchoring the corner. yes

Looks quite retro! (in a 1960s way).

Lookin' good. It'd be nice if the council started planning to pedestrianise some of these streets now that they are no longer only warehouses, remove some of the street parking bays and replace them with planters or median strips with plants. Hell, you could even close one side of the street and make it a wide footpath.

What a fun looking development. I'll be very interested to see how the final palette of materials actually looks, and to what standard the construction detailing achieves.

Do we have access to the ground floor plans and the interaction of the ground units with the internal and external streets and public/private gardens and parks?

Not at the moment, we should be able to get plans/internals in the new year. Should go to sales around that point I hear

Hawthorn's Queens Avenue is emerging as an apartment hot spot of sorts, as developers realise the worth of converting the light industrial and commercial strip into a higher density apartment enclave. Running parallel to Burwood Road, Queens Avenue now has six apartment developments in progress.

Carolyn Whitzman , University of Melbourne Liveability is an increasingly important goal of Australian planning policy. And creating cities where residents can get to most of the services they need within 20 to 30 minutes has been proposed, at both federal and state level, as a key liveability-related mechanism.

Part Three follows on from the Part One: Yarra's Edge and Part Two: Victoria Harbour. The focus of today's piece will be NewQuay and Harbour Town, the northern most precincts within Docklands. NewQuay NewQuay was the first precinct to open way back in 2003 and has probably evolved the most.

The notion of Melbourne becoming a 20-minute City has been explored heavily in recent times. Seeking to provide Melburnians with the ability to 'live locally', the 20-minute City, in essence, strives to provide people with the ability to meet most of their everyday needs within a 20-minute walk, cycle or local public transport trip of their home.
