Developers "flipping" projects for huge profits

Developer Equiset has gone back to Planning Minister Matthew Guy to build even higher on a Collins Street site that tripled in value after the minister approved a skyscraper on it early this year.
It is the latest example of a developer trying to "flip" a project – on-sell it for huge profits after gaining planning approval from Mr Guy, who is responsible for signing off on large projects in Melbourne's CBD.
Equiset bought 464 Collins Street last May for $10.5 million, and immediately began plans for a 55-level apartment tower on the tiny site, known as Makers Mark because of an existing building.

Mr Guy approved the project in February, and it went on the market for around $30 million. The project is now, according to agents CBRE, under contract for sale.
Equiset – which says the building is not yet sold – now wants Mr Guy to sign off on another six levels so that the project's apartments can be made bigger.

Looks like marketing for this one is about to begin, with only around 185 apartments, should sell quite quickly!

Of all the interesting names it could have, included many derived from the heritage facade/shipping chamber they are retaining, they go with 'Collins House' ...

Does anyone know if they removed the double level lofts in the floor plan?

Looked like they've increased the height a bit too, it's at least 61 levels now, construction to commence mid this year.

Yeah there's at least 55 levels in the main body of tower not including the podium, which would just tip it over 200m if the 181m height was at 55 levels .. would have to make it one of if not the thinnest height/width ratio of a tower in Melbourne ?

I just wish (hope?) the western facing side of the building wasn't going to be 200m+ of concrete (assuming the new design follows the previous one)
