Huge New Towers Near Market

While we wait for the final selection of a preferred developer for the Munro site, a nearby development is revealed with twin towers to be among the tallest in Melbourne.

Queens Place, just a block away from the market on the corner of Queen and A'Beckett streets will house an astonishing 1600 apartments.

According to an article in ArchitectureAU the design aims to connect with the context of the QVM development. “We know the market precinct is about to change quite dramatically,” said Patrick Ness, design director at Cox Architecture. “Our early thought was […] to generate a project that links in with the broader streetscape.”

From the QVM Traders Facebook page 3/4/2016- "You're kidding yourselves if you think any of the redevelopment of the market had anything to do with the market itself ... Sorry to say, I believe It's all about the prime real estate." - Drita McLennan
