City of Melbourne's Future (Planning) Committee convened last week to consider the merits of the tri-tower residential development that forms part of developer Lend Lease's $1.9 billion Melbourne Quarter development fronting Collins Street.

Docklands progress update February 2016

On a sunny summer's day I decided to jump on my bike and cycle down to Docklands to compile a visual essay of the construction progress and future developments occurring down at the docks.

Beyond this however, the area will no...

Now and then: Victoria Harbour during 2015 and 2005

The pace of construction activity continues to quicken at Victoria Harbour as Lend Lease cashes in on the seemingly endless demand for apartments. Their Docklands precinct currently sees seven residential towers at various stages of construction, a far cry from the solitary project on the radar during 2005. Add a number of ongoing infrastructure and civic projects within the precinct and the level of development activity within the waterside hub...

A Sister Act: 839-899 Collins Street, Victoria Harbour

Having initially brushed it off as artistic license to populate a render I was surprised to learn that the development would in fact consist of four overall towers or two sets of twin towers along the north bank of Victoria Harbour.

889 Collins Street next for Lend Lease's Victoria Harbour?

The next installment of Lend Lease's Victoria Harbour precinct appears to be near with a clutch of images online prior to the project heading through the necessary channels. Eagle-eyed Urban Melbourne member Nicholas Harrison unearthed the images of 889 Collins Street which have appeared on a handful of Chinese property websites. It must be said Urban Melbourne's grasp of Chinese is not exactly up to scratch so we're not inferring the apartments...

It is so much easier to knock a building down than it is to build one. Building is a long and involved process of dreaming, planning, scheming, and the wonderfully gritty bit that is actually constructing a physical manifestation of these things, while getting rid of a building sometimes takes no more than a bit of paperwork, some heavy machinery, and the stroke of a pen.
