Timing! Until yesterday I wasn’t particularly happy with my choice for the theme ‘Something that is about to disappear soon’, but then I heard of this new development, so I rushed down on my scooter to get a shot. On the corner of Swanston Street and Victoria Streets in the city is this old Carlton and United Breweries (CUB) building, now owned by RMIT (Royal Melbourne Institute of Technology). Just announced is the development by Grocon (the people who are just finishing the tallest building in Melbourne (the Eureka Tower). I certainly hope they will keep this lovely facade in the development.
