Nightingale 1 reaches a construction milestone

Brunswick's Nightingale 1 apartment project reached a significant milestone on Friday, with constructor Project Group holding a ‘Topping Out’ ceremony for the build. Underpinned by the principles of wellbeing and liveability, the Nightingale series of apartment projects are becoming increasingly popular with purchasers, as evidenced by the 2,000 strong waiting list for future Nightingale releases. At 6 Florence Street Brunswick, Nightingale 1 is...

Melbourne's development by tram: the 19

Weighing in at 43 projects, the route 19 tram on the Sydney Road corridor has the potential for a very big uplift in public transport passenger carrying capacity thanks to the Upfield line running adjacent to the tram. Having said that, the Upfield line is a long way from seeing train frequencies increase (a significant boost is not likely to come before the completion of the Melbourne Metro Rail project) and I'd expect the route 19 to do the...

Anstey Precinct's premier development site offered for sale

Brunswick's Anstey Precinct has been a favourite of Urban Melbourne's for some years, essentially a microcosm of Melbourne's greater push toward higher density living outside the central city. Anchored by Anstey Railway Station and with Breese Street as its spine, the Anstey Precinct has been subject to intense apartment development during recent years. While Urban Melbourne has been both positive and critical of the resulting built-form, one...

Nightingale heads back to planning in the wake of VCAT's howler

Thrust into the spotlight last year, Brunswick's Nightingale apartment development has re-entered Moreland's planning system after VCAT revoked the project planning permit in a highly contentious decision. At 6 Florence Street, the project became a poster boy of sorts for current planning inconsistencies with the project's approval nullified due to a lack of onsite car parking even though it is located within metres of Anstey Railway Station,...

Melbourne's low-rise high-density: all projects with 5 or 6 floors in one long list

Following on from Friday's list of 2, 3 and 4 floor low-rise high-density projects , today we're looking exclusively at projects which have either 5 or 6 floors. There are 243 current projects in the list below and while the overwhelming majority of projects are residential, there are a few notable commercial projects such as the ABC's expansion of its offices and broadcast facilities on Southbank, the East Edge Botannica project in Richmond and...

Comment: Plan Melbourne must enshrine steps to purge our insidious car culture

We are nearing the first anniversary of the Andrews Government, they certainly have hit the ground running and set a lot of inter-related policy areas in a different direction. It is just a pity that the public debate around planning has boiled down to high-rise or skyscraper canyons versus monotonous "European" style development sham. The two sides of that debate are analogous to the typical trench warfare of "left" versus "right" politics. It...

Melbourne Urban Design Meetup #3: The ethos and business model behind Nightingale

Following on from the first Melbourne Urban Design Meetup (MUDM) during February, Queens Collective at 20 Queen Street hosted the third MUDM event where James Legge of Six Degrees Architects gave a presentation on the design and business model that brought The Commons to fruition, and so too shortly The Nightingale located at 6 Florence Street, Brunswick. Beginning with Six Degrees' Heller Street Park and Residences project, James Legge explored...

Nightingale takes off

Last week Moreland Council presided over one of the most important planning applications it will see all year. The project in judgement was the Nightingale Apartments, a five storey proposal in a small off-street in Brunswick Victoria. What makes this application of such importance is that it is being undertaken using the same design principles and development strategy as its neighbour across the road ‘The Commons’. The Commons, by Breathe...

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.
