Melbourne to host the Australian Smart Skyscraper Summit in March 2017

With the release of Infrastructure Victoria’s first ever 30-year infrastructure strategy, the state is set to discuss the draft’s proposed developments and projects before the review of the final strategy in parliament in late 2016. The blueprint aims to address areas in need of improvement including congestion and housing.

The changing face of Melbourne's northern CBD

It looks to be one of those instances where a single image says it all. In this case the lead image above illustrates the rapid change engulfing the northern stretch of Melbourne's CBD. During a recent visit to Hickory Group's topping out ceremony for La Trobe Tower, the scale of this change became patently evident. Given abundant coverage to date on Urban Melbourne, towering individual planning applications and rendered city models fail to...

The CBD's northern construction boom in colour

The CBD's northern end is in full bloom so to speak as a variety of high-rise projects rapidly progress from paper designs to reality. So much so one only needs to crane one's head skyward to see multiple tower cranes dotting the skyline in all directions. Hand in hand with this fundamental change to the look and feel of the CBD's northern reaches is the injection of purple facades over certain skyscrapers as design practice Elenberg Fraser seek...

Melbourne CBD on course to be the most densely populated area in Australia

The Australian Bureau of Statistics (ABS) released its updated regional population growth figures on Wednesday and at 14,114 people per square kilometre, the Melbourne CBD sits as the second most densely populated area of the country behind Pyrmont-Ultimo in Sydney (15,117 people per square kilometre) . Based on development underway and in the pipeline - in the sheer number of projects and the size of them - the Melbourne CBD is likely to be in...

Proposals no more, the top end of Elizabeth Street is now a story of mass construction

For the past three years the big planning story in central Melbourne has been the plethora of large skyscraper projects, with the majority of these towers located on either side of Elizabeth Street to the north of La Trobe Street. Up until this point much has been made of the proposals however the majority are now construction sites. Indeed many of the proposals have attracted sufficient sales in order for the developer to be confident enough to...

The Northern Heights: CBD North model updated

It has been some time since the last update of the northern quadrant of our CBD model, better known as CBD North. With a host of new proposals and approvals adding to the precinct, it seems an opportune time to revisit the area as it stands prior to the effects of amendment C262 becoming clear. Select each image for a larger view. Elevation of northern CBD towers looking south. At time of writing, the highlighted area as modeled carries 18...

A City of Melbourne amendment C262 case study

Following on from Craig Yelland’s article , I thought it might be worth looking at the application of amendment C262’s new planning controls on a block within the city. This largely came about of a request from forum regular John Proctor, who suggested a study of: …the block bordered by Little La Trobe, La Trobe, Swanston, Elizabeth, do a comparison of the approved towers and what the 24:1 plot ratio would allow. That block has 5/6 approved...

Northern lights: the incredible rate of change in Melbourne's northern CBD

Cast your eyes over the northern reaches of Melbourne's CBD and a not-too-subtle marker is taking its place. Brady Group's Vision has motored past the 150 metre mark on its way to 226 metres and in doing so is acting as a vanguard project of sorts for the rash of new residential towers set to redefine this section of Melbourne. With a host of new proposals joining the ranks of late, now presents as an opportune time to provide an overview of...

Located on La Trobe Street opposite Melbourne Central, the project will include in excess of 120,...

Eastern promises - an overview of Melbourne CBD's East End developments

The flow of development to Melbourne CBD's East End began as a trickle relative to surrounding inner city precincts, but the 'Paris End' of late has come into its own. 'Paris End' of course is an ill-fitting moniker (some would also say crass) with current development within the CBD's eastern flank well spread, as opposed to being centralised around Collins Street's historic grandeur. Bound by Flinders, Elizabeth, Spring and Victoria, Urban...

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.
