Maybe apart from developers greed planners do not want the public to use much that side of the promenade, since it will be mostly residential and there is other more northerly side which would be wider and maybe with more amenities since it would be more protected from the wind factor...I just assume all these things...lol...it is fine by me as far as they put some chairs between those light fixtures...it is wide enough to walk and cycle...

one asks where the Council and the "planning" minister are on stringent waterfront access and minimum tolerances and design standards? asleep at the wheel as usual

They've almost finished tidying up around 883 and 889 Collins, with the riverside promenade beside 883 open now. The landscaping between 883 and 889 has been dubbed Adela Walk (I think it was "Walk") and is a curious shared vehicle/pedestrian precinct, before becoming an nicely paved plaza at the river end.

Looking good - just needs more people outside of business hours.

.....and second pic.
Third pic is better, but then they go and plant bloody gum trees. Docklands will never feel like part of the CBD with all that planting of natives going on.
God - I'm starting to sound like a broken record. Why not just put some melalucas in there!

Thanks Peter, getting time to share pics is very rare these days. The book, media events, art exhibitions etc. is keeping me very busy. I am just pleased to read that you enjoyed the tsunami ;)

Don't stop on Zenith's account (weird comment, BTW - downright rude!).
These are some of the best pics I've ever seen on this site or Ozscrapers. The above pics make Docklands look amazing. That cluster of buildings in Vic Harbour has ended up looking, from some angles, like a load of different seafaring vessels - like the hulls of ships.

Well the buildings still look authentic as in Melbourne Dream's photos; he just managed to take the best angles and work the camera in buildings favour to emphasize the design features which some people might not be able to notice otherwise...not everyone pays attention to aesthetics and details while walking around... and Docklands is becoming more and more fabulous as the time passes by and it nears to its completion...just wait for the harbour promenade to come into realisation and complete the missing link in Docklands!
Melbourne Dream, or Sydney, as I would refer to him is a wonderfully exquisite photographer and we are lucky to have him!
