Melbourne Square to add some much needed green infrastructure to Southbank

Over the course of the last week OSK Property has released images of a new Southbank park within its Melbourne Square development. The large public park will occupy more than 20 per cent of overall site and will be one of the first stages of the project to be delivered. OSK Property engaged landscape architects, Taylor Cullity Lethlean (TCL) for the park, who are perhaps best known locally for their award-winning work at Birrarung Marr, the...

Malaysia's EFT weighs into the local market with a stake in Melbourne Square

One of Melbourne's largest developments in waiting has been given a boost with Malaysia's Employees' Provident Fund (EPF) officially taking a 49% stake in Melbourne Square.

The 200 metre club revisited

Two almost forgotten planning applications for substantial skyscrapers have re-emerged over the last month, prompting Urban Melbourne to once again highlight the very healthy number of 200 metre plus skyscrapers in the pipeline for Melbourne. Most recently, 57-63 Exhibition Street which was first submitted during August 2014, is still active with Salta Properties backing the Bates Smart-designed skyscraper which would nudge 204m if approved...

Tall tales and Sydney's slump in the skyscraper stakes

It's intriguing to take note of how differing interests play out in the Australian property development industry. In stark contrast to Sydney's regimented planning controls which have long been in place and Melbourne's recently overhauled inner-city planning controls which are now in play, Urban Taskforce Australia (UTA) last Friday called for a greater number of taller towers across Australia's major cities. The call was made via UTA's Urban...

Southbank's surge continues: another CBD model update

With 2016 now well underway and several projects gearing up for construction or gathering pace, it's an opportune time for another update on the progress of Urban Melbourne's CBD model. Previously the focus has been on the CBD North area, however with big projects such as Australia 108 in full swing and the approval of Kavanagh Park, it seemed like the next area worth looking at was Southbank. As this is an ongoing process there are still...

Taller projects and better design outcomes on Southbank

The Southbank development scene is forever in a state of flux, with last week no exception. News has flowed through concerning three of postcode 3006's biggest and best high rise projects, with all three demonstrating a high level of design ability relative to their stubby neighbours. Surrounded by a host of smaller residential towers (some of which have little to no aesthetic design merit), 258 City Road, 93-119 Kavanagh Street and Australia...

Southbank set to gain a new park

At a point where City of Melbourne are grappling with multiple projects aimed toward beautifying Southbank, a current planning application at the behest of private Malaysian developer PJD Property intends to create a new park and surrounding open spaces far superior to anything currently found within postcode 3006. Plans have been touched upon in recent months for 93-119 Kavanagh Street which many readers would currently identify as a sprawling...

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...

Two important stories which traverse both transport and housing topic areas were highlighted on Urban Melbourne this week. The news that the medium and high-density components of Williams Landing will ramp up highlight what some might gloss over but what I think is the correct 'order' of doing things: the rail station is built first, developers then piggyback off the new infrastructure second.
