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.

Last week's joint announcement by Planning Minister Richard Wynne, Premier Daniel Andrews and Lord Mayor Robert Doyle that the Amendment C245 planning controls have been adopted, paves the way for work to commence on the $250 million dollar redevelopment of the Queen Victoria Market. Concept for Munro site (subject to change).

It is so much easier to knock a building down than it is to build one. Building is a long and involved process of dreaming, planning, scheming, and the wonderfully gritty bit that is actually constructing a physical manifestation of these things, while getting rid of a building sometimes takes no more than a bit of paperwork, some heavy machinery, and the stroke of a pen.

Once again Melbourne has turned it on for the spectacular cultural juggernaut that is White Night. A crowd of around 600,000 took part in the all night festival of projections, performances, artworks and installations. Stealing the show again this year was the extraordinary projections upon the Royal Exhibition Building.

Little by little we're getting closer to the money and shovels-in-the-ground end of the Melbourne Metro Tunnel project with the announcement that the Cross Yarra Partnership is the successful bidder for the Tunnel & Stations availability-based private-public partnership (PPP) contract.
