For future reference the photo I have as my twitter background is of this intersection in Melbourne's CBD. I keep it as one of the best examples I've ever experienced of varied massing in an urban context. The building at the foreground (Florsheim Shoes) is 2-3 stories. The buildings directly abutting it are both 3 stories. The buildings next to those are 4 and 6 stories. The next are 8 and 12. And up and up in height and density with the tallest tower located in the centre of the block. If you read the article you'll see this is very similar to the suggestions I provided for the Tivoli site. This image is a good precedent image and should be considered a best practice when introducing increased height and density in a historic low-mid rise context.
