I love a tall building as much as anyone but I absolutely detest this proposal.
This is one instance were I hope Wynne actually does go full karate chop mode.
I think it is perfect development for that site...funny how opinions differ...it brings the Tea House out of its misery, sitting there lonely on that busy intersection; one never notices the building anymore...but with this development I can see how it can bring it to life once again and gently nurture it under its auspices...great development in my eyes!
Not going to lie, that penthouse is seriously cool.
Yes, everyone should have a retreat within their master bedroom
Anyways no too much scope to shift the tower further south-west away from Tea House
I love how the 'plaza' they think will get them a tick for public benefit is actually just a driveway for cars.
^ Yeah was about to say the same. It's replacing like-for-like at best.
I'm still a bit torn on this one, however I would have to say that overall I think it is overdevelopment. Replacing the extension on the side I do not mind, but the tower is just too overbearing. Not a bad design overall, just not sold on it.
The Tea House is mostly intact, the new tower is better than average, OK with me!
I like it.
I don't have a problem with any of this......
I'm actually surprised this hasn't been proposed much sooner. It makes sense.
This application has been amended and hander over the City of Melbourne for a decision.
I'm on the fence with this one. The location is a traffic-sewer.
24 levels now
Of course the shorter height is SO MUCH BETTER. YAY FOR HERITAGE.
I'll hurt myself if my eyes roll back in my head any further.
Have fun with that, Zenith
A much better outcome. Separation and reduction in height were critical for a successful application that would be looked upon favourably by Heritage Victoria.
The design of the lower levels is better.....but the height chop seems pointless
For this site I very much prefer the new shorter version. For once a good height chop.
Nice outcome, nice design.
I agree DB2...the proportions are just right in regards to the rest of area, since nothing is going to be built on that block apart from proposed development ...and design wise very well executed; especially the lower 5 levels being sympathetic with the old Tea House, almost creating a modern version of adjoining Tea House with the lovely sinuous glass extention on the top of it...excellent!
Yeah I have no problem with this current proposal.
