    Not sure if you have been to Footscray lately but the Joseph Road Precinct is a hive of activity.

    • Hi Peter,

      Yes, agreed, the sites at 4-8 Hopkins Street / Neilson Place and 18-30 Moreland Street/Whitehall street have commenced this year, which is good news. The fact remains however, that these developments have been a long time coming and there is a degree of uncertainty as to how quickly a number of projects that already have approval will commence. It may be that once these projects have been completed others will quickly come on line. I have updated the text to reflect your comment. Many thanks.

    The “Royal Bank of Australia” ceased to be in 1927. The “University of Victoria” has never existed.

    Numbers aren’t the only details that need to be correct.
