Geelong Victoria Developments

Geelong is destined to be the largest regional city in Australia. Geelong has about 10 buildings in pipeline that are 10 storeys or more.
Apparently a 155m tower is in discussions as part of a major waterfront redevelopment. I doubt Geelong will see that, but I believe a 130 meter
will grace Geelong eventually.

Took a Sunday drive out of Melbourne and snapped these photos;

Left to right; Work Safe HQ 17 storey's (including plant levels), Mirimar 22 storey's topped out, Mercer St 15 or 16 storey's about to be topped out this month.

The new GMHBA HQ on Moorabol St, construction will commence this month. The building is 8 levels, around 40- 45m tall. This will be the 4th high-rise
to be built in the main town centre. I am particularly excited for this development as it will offer significant densification.

The new Civic precinct on Mercer St, due to start construction this year (however Geelong Council is in a questionable state at the moment)
My office has done some work on this, pushing for more focus on the public realm. Geelong lacks 'Melbourne' type public spaces, which
really isn't helping the city in my opinion.
