^^ The corner treatment is a big improvement, but they should have followed through and redesigned the rest of the complex to match! enlightened

How it used to look below.

Looks much more monumental for that location, almost like a ship's bow:)

The LED lighting effects will also help add interest to what was looking a very poor outcome.

It's very hard to tell from that render of the new corner design how good it will actually turn out, but either way the CoM should be ashamed of themselves for approving this uninspiring schemy for such a landmark site, whilst cutting down or opposing other landmark developments around the city.

Spiffy.

Better than what was originally unveiled. Street level facades are still a little too wide, better than other parts of the docklands in that this development has a few different street fronts with differing styles.

Yeah better than before.. I wish that entry right on the corner was a bit more dramatic maybe a 3-4 storey inverted V

They better use good finishes. I think my next door neighbour is a site super for this - I'll tell him to spare no expense.

The Urban Art Lighting concept is stunning!

It's a nice feeling, when they get it right. smiley

With so many 8's in the number, its likely not surprising that so many were purchased in this one :lol:

bit more on the lighting for those who missed it

888 Collins St lights up

DOCKLANDS | 888 Collins Street | ~130m | 40L | Residential

Docklands will become home to a world-first lighting design when Victoria Harbour’s 888 Collins St is completed.
Currently under construction at the corner of Collins and Bourke Streets, a dramatic lighting feature inspired by Melbourne’s own weather patterns will illuminate the building’s façade.
The lighting design is the expression of Canadian-born designer Bruce Ramus and will feature 35 vertical beams of LED light.
Apart from its aesthetic appeal, in the evening the lighting installation will interpret and display an abstract weather forecast every half hour, as well as interpreting the current weather in real-time.
“On the roof of the building is a weather station and a connection to the Bureau of Meteorology,” Mr Ramus said.
“The goal is to reflect how the weather feels, and represent that with movement, colour and patterns.”
Maintaining a balance between creative and technical processes allows data readings to be recognised in various artistic forms.
“It has a really wide range of expression which is not literal; it is figurative. People can bring their own interpretation to it,” he said.
The world-first project will be environmentally friendly and sustainable, as it will be run by solar power.
“The lights themselves have a life span of approximately 100,000 hours which equates to about 30 years of use, and it’s powered by solar panels, so it is very sustainable,” Mr Ramus said.
While this lighting innovation has never been used before, all design steps are being taken to ensure it is a low maintenance project.
“This is really meant as a unique expression of what was to me both a historical opportunity where Bourke and Collins Streets finally meet, and a playful response to Melburnians’ obsession with the weather.”
“It’s really about the community having a point of connection to the architecture of their community and understand that it reflects them and their environment,” Mr Ramus said.

This is a really cool concept. Stuff like this really transforms an area.
