Places

97 Lonsdale Street
Regarding Dandenong: Places (28 Jun 2016)

Several of the park's old buildings have been mostly demolished, including the bowls club and kindergarten. (I think the sound shell is still there for the moment.) I suppose they'll have to remove that sign about the Kindergarten at some point as well. Sad. They're going to have to work very hard to give the park character again.

The Quest development has topped out, and scaffolding is up now that the heavy lifting (pardon the pun) appears to be done. It looks bigger (both taller and wider) than I was expecting based on the renders. Fingers crossed they polish it up nicely.

27 Scott Street
Regarding Dandenong: Places (11 Apr 2016)

There is movement at The Lonsdale (27 Scott Street). Since they only just launched it, I can't imagine anything has actually started. Nonetheless, the land was entirely empty before, so it is at least curious.

Quest is up to storey #5 along Walker Street, and its shape is starting to emerge a little.

Quest has roughly hit the half-way point along Walker Street. That includes ground level, the two car parking levels, and the first level of rooms.

229 Thomas Street

Another small update on 229 Thomas. Still lots of work going on, and can't see much of the facade yet.

There appears to be some real activity on the site. This photo is from December.

219 Thomas Street (Spectra)
Regarding Dandenong: Places (4 Dec 2015)

Here is a video of Spectra (from 10 months ago, so still the 17 storey design). Covers a bit of the city as well.

In a recent ad for Spectra apartments, there is an (unexpected) render of the renovations to the old health service building next door. It's looking very colourful.

3 storey proposal, sold for $745K.

The Quest development will be getting an extra 2 levels, bringing the total floor count to 8. Sadly, they appear to be carpark levels. (From urban.melbourne.)

Regarding Dandenong: Places (18 Sep 2015)

A new render or two of Spectra looking quite nice. Note the building next door is being renovated and has acquired an extra two stories.

Again, realestate. com.au ad with 20 storeys, this time with picture of facade. (But facade is only 17 storeys.)

22 Wilma Ave
Regarding Dandenong: Places (14 Aug 2015)

Apartments for sale on 22 Wilma Ave. Pretty straightforward design based on the sketch, but that can often work out OK.

There appears to be activity on the Quest development site, as you may or (more likely) may not be able to see from this picture.
