MELBOURNE | Prima-Pearl | 823FT / 251M | 72 FLOORS

Well, it's been a long time coming with this, having been proposed about 6 years ago and going through a few redesigns......... IT'S FINALLY UNDER CONSTRUCTION

Also the 200+m tower construction drought is over.

I was looking at the SSP diagram earlier today...

there's only 1 200m tower U/C

The signature tower at CUB is -not- U/C in fact Grocon are looking to offload the site to another developer with the 275m permit in tact.

the only other 200+m tower proposal likely to move to a U/C status soon is 568 Collins St.

they've been saying that for years - however when the residential vacancy is around 4% and population growth at 250k p/a many people will disagree.

In the early 2000s in Melbourne the high-rise construction was concentrated in CBD + Docklands + Southbank. It's now spread to the whole middle ring of 'burbs - so yeah big ones are taking their time, but they're not out of the game!

updating that from the main projects & construction thread...

CUB Site - as above, it's merely approved and Grocon are seeking a buyer of the site - the rest of the CUB site is being developed in stages, Portrait is the first one Grocon are developing.
70 Southbank Boulevard has had a height increase to 225m, and this weekend's Capital Gain in the Age said that tenants in the existing building were moving so expect sales to start on that soon.
399 Bourke Street - no design change, still waiting for a pre-commitment from a corporate.
72 Collins STreet - has been shortened I think - not sure.
568 Collins Street - construction "rumoured" to commence in July/August (has already gone through its sales cycle)
496 Elizabeth st - still no movement by the developer (Brady) as yet.

btw are you on OzScrapers?

Now at contract documentation stage, the 253 metre apartment tower will cater for the growing premium residential market. It is being architecturally designed by Disegno Australia for the joint venture partnership of PDG Corporation and Schiavello.
253m is RL, the site is 2m above sea level, hence new height is: 251m (4m shortern than Rialto!)

can a mod update the thread title?

cheers.

I thought that Rialto was 243 meters. It's typically listed at 792 feet.
