Interesting read on two different proposals (and vastly different reactions) in Fisherman's Bend.
A tale of two towers: One Melbourne apartment proposal is loved, the other is a 'shocker'
These two planned residential towers are designed by the same architect, yet one is loved and one is loathed by the city's planners.
....
And the 74 level, 900 apartment building gets the nod.....
"This development shows that height is not necessarily bad, as some people may think, when done correctly with the right setbacks...."

This project has been further expanded, making it:

"The biggest urban renewal area in the country. This area is bigger in size than the CBD, the Hoddle grid and indeed Docklands."

Effectively, Melbourne's city centre is going to double in size.

Addition of employment district, doubling the original area can be seen here:
