I asked an old friend who lives in Melbourne to comment.

"I don't know what Melbourne was like before all the urban design happened so can't really give an informed opinion. It's by no means perfect and the 'livable city' tag brings with it many other debates but I find Melbourne a great place to live. The centre is a very attractive and user friendly environment and we are streets ahead (sorry about the pun) of other similar sized cities. I can ride to work along beautiful bike tracks and public transport is comparably good. However, we have major problems with affordability, housing stock shortage and urban fringe infrastructure."
