Looks like the West Tower is in the lead

Too short. From Douglas looking up Johnson it looks like 5 or 6 storeys

Can you imagine how the skyline would have been improved if these 2 towers were each just a few floors higher? 20 and 23 perhaps? I've said it before and I am sure I will say it again, but the CoV's height restrictions and FSRs are kind of a failure.

Also I have heard some Rumours that foreign owners (at least 14units as a group buy) are trying to assign their contracts due to the foreign tax ... it will be interesting to see how those guys end up with.

The 900 block of Johnson is closed during daytime hours for two days next week (May 13/14?). Is the crane coming down ...?

The supposed "tallest" free standing tower crane in Victoria ended up not constructing a building to match its stature.  Looks like they could have gotten by with a couple fewer mast sections.  Oh well, yet another "tower" that can't clear the hill on the horizon.

Short work (no pun intended) is being made of the red tower crane at 989 today.

 

Since Gary's picture above was taken, nothing remains standing even as tall as the shorter tower.

The Tower crane had to be erected at that height to clear the Tower crane that Campbell construction had climbing next door.

Ah yes, good point.  The red crane needed to clear the Legato project's tower crane as can be seen in this shot from the archives (Sep 2017).

I'm afraid to say that the angle captured by Gary H sure presents architectural blandness. There's not much to distinguish any of those buildings.

do we have any idea on an updated % of units sold? Based on their website, aside from the West tower, most floor plans are still available to view.

They're in the 75%-80% sold-out range.
