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...

The recent implementation of sweeping new planning regulations has cast doubt over many of the proposals which are...

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.

Melbourne set to join the 300 club

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...

Are 200 metre residential towers the new norm for Melbourne?

There is indeed a certain measure of prestige or stature when a tower of any description reaches 200 metres or above in height. Physically inconsequential yet impressive within the psyche, tall towers evoke a sense of grandeur. To that end Melbourne had up until this year six towers that measured to roof (not concerning ourselves with pesky spires) 200 metres or more in height. Impressive yes but only a shadow of what is in store for this fair...
