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.

See the first OYM posts that began from Friday last week:

During July, Urban Melbourne reported on City of Melbourne's positive response to Salta Properties' bid to have a skyscraper approved at 63 Exhibition Street. Last week a permit for the mixed-use, Bates Smart-designed tower was granted by the Minister for Planning, concluding a lengthy three-year stint at planning for the application.

No doubt about it, the emerging build-to-rent model has the property media in a tizz at the moment. What may in part become a solution to the housing and rental affordability dilemma has garnered immense media attention of late.

The former site of John Batman's home, Batman's Hill is entering the final stages of its redevelopment. Collins Square's final tower has begun its skyward ascent, as has Lendlease's Melbourne Quarter Commercial and Residential precinct already. Melbourne Quarter's first stage is at construction and involves a new 12-storey home for consultancy firm Arup along with a skypark.

Andréanne Doyon , RMIT University ; Joe Hurley , RMIT University ; Susie Moloney , RMIT University , and Trivess Moore , RMIT University Australia’s building and land-use policy settings fall well short of what’s needed to make meaningful progress toward creating sustainable cities. You will find environmental sustainability goals and objectives in government strategy documents.

One project that ticked the boxes was Green Edge.
