a few tidbits on this tower.

It's the first tower above 200m to be built in the CBD since the early 90s (when the big commercial boom built 101 Collins, 120 Collins, Telstra HQ, 333 Collins, ANZ world HQ (now superceded by their Docklands campus HQ), Bourke Place, Melbourne Central and 530 Collins Street).

It's the first tower above 200m to be built west of King Street (for 30 years Rialto and 20 years Bourke Place have effectively been the height "Book-end" to the skyline in the west end).

Is this tower a proposal or is it under construction? If u/c, could you please post some pics showing progress?

Almost the entire building now gone, just the facade remaining. They had a small drill on-site this morning, digging down through the floor of the old building. Don't know that was about, certainly not piling, looked about a third of the size of a piling rig.

This one's not quite under construction yet (we need real foundation work before it's considered under construction), so I moved this thread to the proposals subforum. As soon as we have pictures of foundation work (caissons, piles, or matt foundation). Once we have that, I, or another moderator, will move this back into the construction forum.

Would you mind changing the height? The final design is to 224m and 68 levels.

Stunning tower! The vertical fins going all the way up remind me of many office towers built in the 60's with similar looking cladding.
