nice photos with the towers nearly complete. Its been a great skyscraper boom in Melbourne with quite an interesting ending since the major projects all happen to be finishing up at nearly the same time. Its good to see them almost done, though, it seems like some of these towers have taken quite a long time.

Those buildings are excellent additions to an already great skyline.

they're all hot towers. There's definately a theme appearing in the new construction.

Quick update on the St. Kilda Road precinct which is based around the a magnificent tree lined boulevarde which leads to the CBD and is lined with skyscrapers generally between 40 and 80 metres high due to strict height controls (apart form a few exceptions like the 162m high Royal Domain Towers :-)

Aerial photograph of the St. Kilda Road precinct:

A few of the many Proposed Towers for the precinct (which has strict height controls):

we're definitely at the business end of this construction cycle now! (hence the almost daily updates )

Incredible new buildings. I officially pronounce Melbourne "Chicago Down Under".

One of my friends visited Melbourne for a school project for 7 weeks, and he loved it and said lots of construction was going on there. All of these projects are amazing. My friend also liked Melbourne a lot more than he liked Sydney, and now I see why!
