^^ That Bridge Road entry is just hideous!

The second floor wall of metal is the sort of crap you used to see a lot in the 1970s.

I personally prefer the new design, I think it will age far better.

Still pretty poor. Brick shipping container-like podium and then a lump of concrete ontop. Perhaps it could turn out okay but it is a huge solid mass without much of a break in the form.

Up by the river
Growthpoint Properties Australia is seeking to boost the value of a riverside development site in Richmond.
The ASX-listed company, almost two-thirds owned by South Africa's Growthpoint Properties Ltd, is seeking permission from Planning Minister Matthew Guy to replace 570-572 Swan Street with a six-level commercial building.
The proposed office would add about 18,300 square metres of space to the suburb.
The site abuts other low-rise commercial buildings retained by the property company as investments. The properties are within the Botanicca business park, in a tranquil pocket of Richmond bound by the Yarra River to the north, east and west.

The updated design is a major improvement on the initial one! Those concrete forms would look pretty great if cast off-form. The 'terrace house' style podium has a nice rhythm and materiality to it in this render, too. Are you sure that the listed address is correct here, though? It doesn't look like that section of Swan Street to me.

Block for public housing in Richmond not needed, says state

A multimillion-dollar block of prime real estate in Richmond previously reserved for public housing could be sold off by the Napthine government.
The land, purchased by the former Labor government and valued at up to $10 million, was recently axed from state government plans to overhaul Melbourne's largest high-rise public housing estates.
Changes to the local planning scheme, at the request of Housing Minister Wendy Lovell, have also lifted all height restrictions for the 120-metre-long site on the corner of Griffiths and Highett streets.
According to a government explanatory report issued in January, Ms Lovell ''has advised that the Griffiths Street site no longer forms part of the proposed master planning for the substantive Richmond public housing estate''.
A spokeswoman for Ms Lovell said the government was evaluating the 3492-square-metre parcel of land and there were currently no plans to sell or develop the site.
She said the land was ''considered ancillary'' to the Richmond master plan because it was a block away. It is understood the government has told Yarra Council the land is surplus and not required for public housing.

Salta pushes ahead with Richmond, Abbotsford development

Salta Properties will forge ahead to deliver another 1000 apartments over the next five years in a pocket of Abbotsford and Richmond near the Victoria Gardens precinct as rival projects near completion.
A small parcel of land in the popular inner-city suburbs between Grosvenor Street and the Yarra River has seen nearly 1500 apartments built over the past decade by several developers including Salta, Salvo Property Group and Hamton.
Salta this week completed its $250 million, 500-apartment Green Square project at 609 Victoria Street in Abbotsford three months ahead of schedule.
The complex includes 93 Quest serviced apartments and was financed by NAB as its largest current non-syndicated Australian residential development project. The building covers a portion of a site that once housed the MFB's headquarters.
''We're looking at re-prioritising our rollout and moving to stage 2 of Green Square,'' managing director Sam Tarascio said. ''We've got the remainder of the MFB site and we'd like to clean that up.''
Directly across the road on the corner of Burnley and Victoria streets on another smaller lot also owned by Salta, the group expects to start work in June on another 61 units in its A Place to Live complex.

Richmond station lined up for major revamp
May 26, 2014 - 5:44PM
Adam Carey

Richmond station, one of the busiest and ugliest railway stations in Melbourne, is being eyed up for redevelopment, with high-density apartments, office towers, shops and a hotel being considered.

Consultants for Major Projects Victoria have completed an engineering evaluation of the Richmond station precinct, as the Napthine government looks to follow through on previously announced plans to revamp the station and surrounds.

Richmond is one of a number of railway stations, including Jewell, Essendon and Alphington, that have recently been earmarked for urban renewal, although its city fringe location and status as one of the network's busiest interchanges has made it a candidate for a more intensive form of development.

The government is yet to settle on plans for the precinct but has previously touted a 20-storey tower as an option. The Age understands property developers believe it could host thousands of new dwellings.

The station is an interchange for eight suburban lines to Melbourne's eastern and southern suburbs, and also serves the city's sporting heartland, with the MCG, Tennis Centre and AAMI Park nearby.

But it is dingy and unattractive, with its main entrance surrounded by car yards and dotted with overflowing rubbish skips. Busy Punt Road also severs the station entrance from the city's sports stadiums.

Richmond station is vile and an embarrassment. I welcome ANY re-development there.
