The CBD, had a huge boom of office buildings in the early 80's and late 90's but now there are some offices that are empty, due to the harsh economic times, many companies have let workers go and have completely closed down. Now, they are waiting for someone to call them home. The city has said that no more buildings will be constructed (there are a few exceptions) in till every last space is full. The residents don't seem to mind, as they enjoy the skyline just the way it is, branching over into the vast ocean like a palm tree.

Now, lets start the tour of the city, here is the the city right on the edge of the peninsular. In that picture, you can see the Police Station, Capital Records and 152 Plaza, one of the cities tallest buildings.


And here is the other side, much larger but it still has it's share of empty buildings. In this picture you can see the Town Hall, Crown Casino, Central Park, Dandenong Museum and many famous hotels lining the shore.


The inner suburbs, with tall, old and historic apartments the popular choice of living. The Dandenong Education centre can be seen and can't be missed, as it is one of the biggest buildings in the city, It has all the levels of education from Pre School to uni, it's a one step education system.


That's all for now, but we have time for one more visit, the Dande Tower, built in the suburbs it can be seen from every angle of the city. There was some protests about it being constructed but over time it turned into a international icon.


Thank you,

There are some interesting downloads you're using, as well as a good mix of buildings. However, there are also an awful lot of abandoned buildings. I also spotted some pointless roundabouts and a lack of seawalls or other coastal development. A little more care and you could have some really fabulous pictures!

There was meant to be some abandoned buildings, to fit the economic meltdown happening now, but i will replace them and update these pictures when i have finished. The roundabouts, where i live the are lots of them and they are pretty pointless, i also put them where there was no room for anything else. I have downloaded a lot of seawalls, but i did not want to use them, as i wanted to keep the coast like it was, and not straighten it out.
