Melbourne developer Beulah International has announced the six teams competing to design a $2 billion mixed-use development in Southbank on a site currently occupied by a BMW car dealership.

The shortlisted teams:

Chances are good that the winner will be realizing their first project in Australia. Only one lead architect among the six teams has completed a building in the country: OMA, which built the temporary MPavilion last year and is also, as ArchitectureAU points out, realizing a new building for the Western Australian Museum, set for a 2020 completion.

ArchitectureAU also tells us (our emphasis): "The shortlisted practices will present to a yet-to-be-named seven-member jury on 17 May. The jury will select a winner in July. The developer has appointed Ross Clark, former chief operating officer of the Australian Institute of Architects, as competition advisor."
