Corner of Bourke & Queen Streets
10 News story:
This is one I'm looking forward to, Elenberg Fraser's best design so far in my humble opinion!
Construction very likely to start this year with the demolition of the existing building.
I collect, therefore I am.
Agree with Peter.
What a vision this building will be! Love it.
Retail in the current building seem to be closing down at the moment, demolition shouldn't be too far off.
Dreams are comming true...
Not many buildings stir my soul but this is certainly one of them. Looking forward to this with a great deal of anticipation.
A couple of lasting memories. All tenants bar level nine out. Westpac commenced document removal last Friday.
ahh thanks glenn
external works, probably enabling the installation of safety gantries prior to demo
This is going to be quite a long and agonising process....but great to see the start of some action nonetheless
TBO this is getting off the ground quicker than I thought.
Demolition of a site like that must be a huge challenge. Good luck to them.
Really looking forward to this one going up. A true landmark design.
Scaffolding on its way up:
bout time this one started kicking.
This is the next one on my 'must watch' list after Prima Pearl. The design is something special.
^^ Ditto everyone!
What about that lane in the last photo?
Looks like it's just a lane, no bars, shops or street art.
This is not Sydney, we can't have that here!
Delta's been gutting the insides while dramas happen. Wish they'd bring in the big wrecking ball like the good old days :D
Also quite a tight site, with trees lining both foothpaths and overhead tram wires. Probably put in a over Queens street gantry
^^ The demolition process was dictated by the fact that there was a lot of asbestos in the building.
Thankyou for the great rendering Laurence.
Still no activity I presume?
According to Glenn Wilson (on SSC), this one could be shelved entirely should the dispute with the neighbouring owner drag on past June.
Was really looking forward to this one... :(
can someone explain what the problem is with 140 Queen....i've missed why this has slowed
