    Roi in North Fitzroy, by architects Bird de la Coeur.
    Is this
    a) a frenchified abbreviation of Fitzroy?
    b) french for "king". Pronounced rwah.
    c) the acronym for Return On Investment?

    Update from Brisbane
    Also near the names on the river bend:

    Waters Edge
    Terrace Row
    Urban Harmony

    Names and architecture are commensurate
    The river is within spewing distance

    They are getting desparate. How about 'Point de Mer' in Beaumaris. Or should it be Beaumarais?

    The Roi in Fitzroy. Obviously a 'container' for Bogans. BTW have you seen the marketing images? A recent one has more bamboo than building. Mmmm. Homey. Nice if you are a Panda.

    Rue de Chapel in Prahran. How embarrassing!

    Not sure which is more irrelevant - Rue de Chapel or Prahran?

    Neither are luke. Ilk on Toorak Road may be. What a screamingly funny name for welfare housing for aspirationals.

    funny how paris doesn't have a melbourne end to any of its streets hey.
  • edited 3:22AM
    They don't seem to be touting the other end of Collins St as the "New York end" like they were a few years ago.

    While we're down that end, the staffers' project nickname for the 558m Grollo Tower when it was on the boards at DCM in '95 - Hard On Collins.

    Polishing a turd?

    PS. What's Mrs Pallas's role on the project?
  • edited March 2010
    ^ timid's role was to [** deleted **]

    fair crack - but not a turd mate.
    its marxicos only hill, a drive through sacrificial altar and a gateway to landscaped grounds where kangaroos graze in front of the neo-modherdist family tenarse courts.
    with pimping will be up 2 scratch with northwest turdstile to the paddock by can't comes - a gerocratic musing on drains, their lost youth in germany and air conditioned coffins by the 18th hole.

    The Face St Kilda.

    A touch of the slumping Dalis... or a Tim Tam.

    DOMAIN: St Kilda's newest and most significant luxury apartment development is now available. Right in the heart of the action with views to Luna Park, the development is located on the corner of Acland and Carlisle Streets. By renowned architects Ashton Raggatt McDougall. As Ian McDougall says “the design embraces the idiosyncrasies of St Kilda, a community of the surreal where the local and exotic mix.”

    Marketers say:
    "Elevate living to an art form"
    "Inspired by the eclectic spirit of St Kilda-ness" (who is St Kilda Ness?)
    "The Face breaks new ground" (face plant?)
