Re: last image, in 10 years there'll likely be 6 individual pedestrian/walkway levels, up from the present 4, under/on/above Grattan Street with the creation of a mezzanine/ticketing and platform levels at the Parkville MMR station.

It also begs the question how the Parkville Station might be built - those airbridges would become an obstruction and the RMH's generator is underground (under the entrance) just off to the left in that last image.

Interesting times ahead.

its interesting that given hospitals are public buildings the amazing quality of architecture, treatments etc that has been achieved at VCCC and Royal Childrens.

surprised the Herald Sun hasn't done a stupid front page story about the price of glass or something. where as school buildings, transport projects etc are 'value engineered' to the last dollar.

^^ I think to a large extent we have Plenary Group and the fact this was delivered as a PPP to thank. Children's was a bit different where it was intended as a best practice design in "healthy buildings", but that also being a PPP would be an interesting factor to consider. As was Spencer Street Station ...

nb I'm not actually mounting an argument here. I'm ideologically nervous of PPPs, especially as it still requires govt to sign off on the grand architecture - maybe that's an easier thing to do with a lower risk profile on the project, I think it was Lend Lease took a big bath because of delays on Spencer St ...

Did anyone else hear concerns aired the other morning on 774 that the VCCC has used similar cheap and dangerous cladding to that used on Lacrosse?

Marvelous Mega-Melbourne

I hope it's not true.

Wouldn't be at all surprised. My understanding is that we may well find Alucobest all over town ...

"The non-compliant cladding used in the Lacrosse building is an aluminium composite panel known as Alucobest. It has been reported in the media that this product has been used as cladding on other buildings in Victoria over a number of years. If this or other non-compliant products have been used as cladding on buildings required to be of Type A construction then, in the event of a fire, it may present additional risk to the occupants of the building.

If you are aware that you have been involved in a project for the construction of a Class of building mentioned above, please review your files to determine the type of cladding used in these projects. If the cladding is Alucobest or any other non-compliant product, please notify the VBA as soon as possible with the details of the building including the address so that further analysis can be undertaken to ensure that there is no health or safety risk.

The VBA is working closely with industry groups and the Government to understand the scope of this issue and determine what actions will be appropriate once it is known."

Parkville Station project rezoned

The Victorian government has approved the rezoning of 130ha of land at Carlton in Melbourne’s inner north.

Planning Minister Richard Wynne will announce today that he has approved a rise in height limits around the planned ­Parkville Station project, ­allowing for medium-density ­development in the area.

The precinct lies between the University of Melbourne and RMIT, taking in the two universities, four hospitals and a large part of Australia’s medical ­research institutes.

It will include the University of Melbourne’s 8000sq m ­Carlton Connect project.

The changes to the planning scheme mean the land has been given capital city zoning with height limits of up to 60m.

Mr Wynne said the area would become a hub of education, health and research.

“The precinct is going to have a massive influx of jobs and investment. This is about setting it up for smart growth, so that more people can have liveable homes, be closer to work, while making sure Carlton retains its character,” Mr Wynne said.

“These plans give certainty and preserve the look and feel of Carlton. There’s a clear definition between the densely developed areas south of Victoria Street, to medium-rise buildings around Melbourne University and the residential areas of ­Carlton and Parkville further north.”

60m is enough don't you think?

May have got my perspectives mixed up. 60m would be the equivalent to which building?

VCCC is 72m. Can't find the height of The Spot, but it's 12 storeys, so probably comes in a bit under 60m.

60 is plenty tall providing what they build quality projects.

It is only a preferred height limit so they could go higher if the proposal is good enough.

I at least hope the internal amenity of that Melb Uni project makes it worth it, but I very much doubt it
