Is the new apartment still on the umpteenth floor of a tall
tower, or have you moved to lower ground?
5th floor of a 31 storey tower. This time round I knew
exactly what I wanted which narrowed it down to three towers,
and then a subset within each one. I spent four months
looking and was a little disappointed when the first to come
on the market was only on level 5 - fourth really in UK
parlance since this building is American numbered, 1 =
ground. Other Melbourne buildings adopt British numbering.
It didn't take long to realise that being lower was no loss.
My old balcony, high and on a corner, was rarely usable
because of wind; the new one is like an extra room. Extra
bonus is that my car space is just across the corridor and
through a door, no lift.
Since I've been here Melbourne has seen an explosion in high
rise development - this building at 31 storeys is about #120
