Apartments galore set to breathe new life into the western CBD

Once derided as the derriere of Melbourne's CBD, the west end is undergoing a marked revival with a slew of residential projects about to begin. This revival largely can also be attributed to the ongoing development of Docklands and the redevelopment of what is now Southern Cross Station, with the resultant epicentre of Melbourne's CBD slowly shifting to the area around King and Spencer Streets. A snapshot of some of the largest of these...

Collins Street West set for significant change

With the bulk of Melbourne CBD's current high-rise boom centred largely along the northern reaches of Elizabeth Street, there's now a shift back towards Melbourne's traditional main street of Collins Street. This is evidenced by six significant projects at various stages of their life-cycles, which are set to transform the western end of the traditional Hoddle Grid, bringing with it further street life and activity. The buildings range in height...

Fragrance Group secures approval for the seemingly defunct 555 Collins Street

Singaporean outfit Fragrance Group has managed to gain approval for a substantial residential tower at 555 Collins Street. Long after notions of a 400 metre commercial tower and in the wake of Fragrance Group's early ambitions for a 300 metre mixed use monolith onsite, a residential tower holding in excess off 600 apartments has been given the green light by Planning Minister Richard Wynne. This process of approval has taken place in conjunction...

Status unknown: a current overview of the 200 metre club

It has become increasing difficult to decipher the status of the many towers beyond 200 metres that are or are intending to stake their place in the Melbourne skyline. While 568 Collins Street is at completion and a handful of others are in their construction infancy, a veil of uncertainty hangs above many intended developments. The recent implementation of sweeping new planning regulations has cast doubt over many of the proposals which are...

A synopsis of Melbourne's 200 metre plus towers produces a startling number

With more ins and outs than your favourite football team, it's an opportune time to provide a synopsis of all the towers vying to, or in the process of joining the Melbourne's 200 metre club. Much has changed since the last time Urban Melbourne visited the matter during August 2014 ; new projects are seeking their place in the skyline while others have fallen by the wayside. Rather than provide a simple list of those projects beyond 200 metres...

Softly does it: 555 Collins Street in detail

555 Collins Street has been reported as having a variety of uses post its first public appearance close enough to two years ago. At that stage is was envisaged as a purely commercial tower, and at 404 metres would have put it firmly into the world's tallest buildings club. Recent reports alluding to a mixed-use proposal with roughly half the tower dedicated to commercial space have been superseded once more, with the scheme under consideration...

Urban Melbourne's Project Database booms

While a select few new developments added during 2015 are either at sales or under construction, the vast majority of new listings are either seeking or have recently...

Melbourne set to join the 300 club

For so long it has teased and been hinted at, with Daniel Grollo in particular predicting that a 300 metre tower in Melbourne would become a reality in the not-too-distant future. And so in 2014 we find ourselves facing the prospect of not one but four separate 300 metre plus buildings gracing the Melbourne skyline in the next few years.

Melbourne's 200 metre club bursting at the seams

If one statistic brings into focus Melbourne's current development boom, it's this one; since Rialto's completion heralding Melbourne's first 200 metre plus tower in 1986, a total of six towers beyond 200 metres (not including antennas) have been built in the proceeding 28 years. Melbourne right now has 23 towers beyond 200 metres ranging from proposed to under construction. It's a gobsmacking figure representative of a perfect storm of...

Cbus Property seeks a sky-high planning scheme amendment for 447 Collins

So it has come to be that a slab of marble facade dislodging itself during 2012 has led to one of Melbourne's more audacious and sought after planning amendments. From that initial 'loss of face,' a chain of events has since seen 447 Collins Street vacated, approved for demolition and subject to an international design competition at the behest of current owner, Cbus Property . Woods Bagot in conjunction with New York-based SHoP Architects have...

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.
