MELBOURNE | Vision Apartments (500 Elizabeth St) | 226 M / 741 FT | 69 FLOORS

This proposal has been around for a while but Brady are now marketing it. It's diagonally opposite the Queen Vic markets.

It's also had redesign, and a 6 level height increase to be taller than 568 Collins Street - I think they're going to market this as the tallest residential tower in the CBD. (Eureka / Prima / Queensbridge are naturally on Southbank)

If you really want to get technical, this is going to be the tallest in the CBD Annex. Melbourne CBD = the old Hoddle Grid (Spencer to Spring Sts, Flinders to La Trobe Sts), CBD Annex: La Trobe to Victoria Sts with the western boundary being the Queen Vic markets/ Flagstaff gardens



old design (a few years ago)

I like the new proposal better! What's with the flowers? Is this the Late 1960's? LOL

Archi on OzScrapers keeps a generic city model and adds proposals as they come out to it...

Looks to be shorter than the original proposal. I count 63 floors.

What is going on with the building beside it ? is it being re-skinned or is it just a horribly designed tower. The new tower is very nice .

Holy Instant Skyline, Batman! I count 4 rather tall towers under construction in that last shot. And one finished one that will always look like it's under construction (to the left of Vision). Melbourne is on fire!
