Really? It reminds me most of Australia 108. Some very similar design elements at play with this tower.

I can see that. I guess it's a very Southbank tower.

Agreed - the tower is boredom inducing. But, yes, the podium has a bit of the maestro of timber, Kengo Kuma about it:

Loving this addition to SY but not a big fan of the timber used in this render. All you have to do is look at the facade of Melbourne Central from Swanston street to know where this is heading.

Err it looks to me like it's all glass enclosed. Pretty sure whoever designed this knows a THING or two about how wood weathers ...

Agreed Chris, they can't build this fast enough - a brilliant edition to the public realm in SY.

It seems that it's now easier to build a tower in South Yarra than it is in the CBD.

Box Hill is becoming the same too.

There are at least a dozen or more towers going up in the CBD Qantas, what are you talking about?

Larry Kestelman proposes 31-level South Yarra skyscraper
November 6, 2015 - 12:03PM
Marc Pallisco

Dodo founder, venture capitalist and property developer Larry Kestelman has wasted no time proposing South Yarra's next skyscraper.

With the ink barely dry on the $14 million contract securing the outgoing Gay Means Health Centre, Kestelman's LK Property Group has applied to build a 31-level residential building with 324 flats.

At that height, the proposed tower would still be 19 levels lower than South Yarra's tallest approved skyscraper, coincidentally also being developed by LK Group.

The application is also an example of how quickly planning precedents have shifted – coming six years after Sydney-based developer Stockland fought several planning authorities for permission to construct a 29-level, 350-unit tower at nearby 2-4 Yarra Street.

While Stockland's proposal covered a 2150-square-metre parcel of land, LK Group's 37-41 Claremont Street block is 970 square metres.

In 2011, Stockland sold the Yarra Street property to local developer Little Projects, which had nearly completed the nearby Ilk tower in Toorak Road.
