A glimpse into the future
Urban Melbourne has done a fascinating summary of recent development in CBD north.
Mark Baljak was invited to the “topping out” ceremony of Hickory Group’s LaTrobe Tower and took this fascinating photo. Is this really our city? Wow. It’s changing isn’t it?
Mark said: “It looks to be one of those instances where a single image says it all.”
He says the experience gave him unique insight into the scale of the change.
“Given abundant coverage to date on Urban Melbourne, towering individual planning applications and rendered city models fail to adequately convey the emergence of a new crop of tall Melbourne towers,” he says.
“The above image for instance would be greatly augmented should the 210m 111 A’Beckett St rise in the foreground; essentially block out three of the new crop of towers which all weigh in above the 200m mark: Vision, Victoria One and Light House,” he continued.
