What has gone and what will be for 2014

With 2013 drawing to a close it's a opportune time to extend a sincere thank you to all readers out there that have taken the time to view Urban Melbourne and contribute valuable input by way of comments, emails and content.

Having developed the idea for Urban Melbourne well over a year ago and have it come to fruition during March 2013, we are ecstatic at the growth of the website throughout 2013 and feel that the work of many people has been vindicated.  To that end special thanks goes to those members who have provided their time to write articles purely borne out of dedication to, and interest in the one topic we hold in common - magnificent Melbourne and its progression.  Further a massive thank you to those people who have utilised and posted comments on our forum, showing a willingness to contribute on the most basic (and most important) level.

One of the driving forces behind Urban Melbourne was and is the desire to provide a platform for Melbourne's development and associated industries to interact.  Whilst most of this occurs off website, the response has been so overwhelming that prior to Urban Melbourne's first anniversary we will roll out a brand new website with increased usability and a massively expanded content base - and we can't wait!

Unless an event worthy of coverage occurs over the holiday season, Urban Melbourne will resume an enhanced content cycle beginning Monday 13th January 2014.  From everyone at Urban Melbourne enjoy the holiday period and we'll be back bigger and better for 2014!

Melbourne’s architectural landscape is a wonderful juxtaposition of modern and Victorian architecture. Although the CBD has been peppered with many skyscrapers, its historical structures have won Melbourne the title of “Australia’s most European city”. Perhaps the most striking example of this juxtaposition between old and new is the Coops Shot...
