Ok think I'm going completely nuts but have gone through the menu now 5 times and can't see a thread on St Kilda Rd or Sth Melb?
Anyway I was very fortunate enough today to go through on the first day of inspections. This is a very high quality development. From limestone walls, flooring, bespoke finishes everywhere. Even the one bedder was very well done and felt large. Kudos to Rothelowman here.

Batman's Hill has a good vibe to it. Its going to be interesting how this is linked to Flinder street, if at all.

I would say based on what has been seen of Walker's and Lend Lease's designs, I think they went with the right concept was chosen.

Although Walker's was a decent effort, I don't think it offers as much with the site. LL seem to have captured elements of Melbourne which seem to make its plan have greater potential to integrate with the rest of the city. Time will tell though as it comes to life.

5*200m towers on the one block?

Freshwater hopes high

September 25, 2013

Australand is looking to sell its last development site in the Freshwater Place precinct for about $30 million as the listed group forges ahead with plans to move out of the high-rise residential sector.
The 3096-square-metre property is tipped to expect strong interest from international developers, who have been staging a major push into the city centre's high-density apartment market in recent years.
Australand executive general manager Sean McMahon said the ''highest and best'' use for the site was a hotel or apartment tower of at least 70 storeys, similar to its signature Freshwater Place residential development next door.
Australand had obtained a planning permit to build a 42,000-square-metre office facility on the site, which was set to follow two other high-rise commercial towers, totalling 85,000 square metres, that are already in place.

But the developer is now suggesting that 71-level, 640-unit apartment block is more suitable, with the precinct's architects Bates Smart offering an ''indicative scheme'' as an alternative.

can't have it both ways

State grows by 100,000 people a year
September 27, 2013
Tim Colebatch

Victoria's population growth has surged to more than 100,000 a year for the first time since 2009, as net overseas migration swelled to a four-year high.
The Bureau of Statistics estimates that the state's population grew by 102,000 or 1.82 per cent in the year to March. It was the biggest growth of any state, and in the March quarter the biggest increase from net migration

Victoria had 5.713 million people in March, and if it keeps growing at this rate, would top 6 million at the start of 2016. It has added more than a million people since 2000, and on current rates, will add another million by 2021.
Melbourne's population is on track to rise from 4.25 million in mid-2012 to 4.5 million by 2015 and 5 million by 2020. By the end of next year, it will have grown 30 per cent in just 15 years

High-rise rush threatening city's liveability
September 27, 2013
Nick Toscano

A high-rise housing ''gold rush'' is eroding Melbourne's edge as a liveable city, with an extra 39,000 apartments planned for the next three years, a new report warns.
Monash University researchers have forecast an inner-city housing glut on the horizon as the state government pushes ahead with urban renewal projects such as Fishermans Bend, where 5000 new apartments will be built in a decade.
The report on Melbourne's unprecedented high-rise apartment boom, released on Thursday, said uncontrolled housing growth would be a blow to Melbourne's reputation as an attractive city in which to live and work.

Central Equity will release there new 47 storey tower at 612 Lonsdale Street Soon. It was 141m high but the plans have been amended so could be a little taller.

Hopefully the design has been substantially amended. The plans Central Equity originally submitted were terrible. I'd be happy if they went back to these plans;

I realise that not all will be built, but whichever way you look at it that's an impressive number.
