22-Sep-2013: It's still hard to get one's head around the fact that after 150+ years, parallel running Collins and Bourke Street will finally meet in that town planning disaster called Docklands - a mass of ugly high-rise buildings in a precinct put together by developers "with their snouts in the trough" rather than creating a new valid suburb.

This is the new terminus in Collins Street West, looking east towards the CBD, framed by a pair of monstrosities, each trying to outdo the other for inappropriateness and ugliness.
