Oh.Yes.Melbourne finds a new home on Urban Melbourne

Today we're welcoming the newest addition to the team: Oh Yes Melbourne.

Curated by Sydney Struwig, Oh Yes Melbourne (OYM) takes a look at the Melbourne of today and that of yesterday, with a heavy focus on visuals, drawing from Sydney's own extremely large collection of images that grows larger every day.

A flâneur with a keen photographic eye roaming around the city, Sydney & OYM will be showcasing Melbourne's urbanity with a focus on the city's streets and the scenes that are captured within them ('Why We Melbourne'), individual buildings, other urban destinations in Victoria and peering back in time with the 'Today in History' series.

Why We Melbourne 03SEP16

Oh Yes Melbourne has its own dedicated section of the site which also draws on OYM's dedicated social media presence.

As the curator, Sydney has been given editorial freedom and will be complimenting the existing Urban Melbourne publishing cycle.

Development & Planning

Friday, January 20, 2017 - 00:00
A rush of planning applications either side of the festive break are cumulatively seeking to add to South Melbourne's robust development scene, with four major apartment projects lodged. City of Port Phillip will now assess the respective merits of the fresh applications, along with a handful of other noteworthy towers already at planning that when combined, would provide the popular suburb with thousands of new apartments.

Policy, Culture & Opinion

On 2 January 2017, it was reported that several popular eateries and bars in Footscray had been vandalised, including the perennially successful 8 Bit Burgers on Droop Street, and Up In Smoke on Hopkins Street. 8 Bit had the warm new year's welcome gift of 14 smashed windows and the words “F**k off hipster scum” spray-painted on their entrance.

Visual Melbourne

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”.

Timber mid-rise buildings are becoming the preferred choice for many stakeholders in Melbourne, due to a combination of factors, including cost-effectiveness, liveability, ease and efficiency of construction. Within the recent National Construction Code change, Deemed-To-Satisfy provisions allow mid-rise timber construction for buildings up to 25 metres “effective height” (typically, eight storeys).
