I am working on a mega post that I want to be historically accurate and interesting, but I have been diverted by finding an association with a Lady and a W B Griffin designed housing estate and they are all connected. What was to be a simple book review exploded. It will take time.
Fortunately I have a couple of photos up my sleeve. This building is at the corner of Alma and St Kilda Roads in St Kilda. It just has to be a case of VCAT strikes again. Surely my City of Port Phillip would not approve of it? It dwarfs every building around it, even the church spire.
Utter disgrace and nasty blot on the area. In England, they seem to mangage higher density living with a bit of style and blending into surrounds. Not so here. We put humungous warts on interesting and electic artwork.
