Man I like this building. Didn't think I would from the renders but I think it's turning out great.... Even with the gold star, haha. Big fan of the architectural style in Melbourne.

I get what you're saying about the gold growth in the middle RobEss, without it would for sure be sleeker, but not as iconic. This will be one of those buildings that you won't see anywhere else in the world and makes your skyline that much better because of it.

Good god when this bubble pops



I listen to alternative financial analysis often and I have heard many smart people say the four biggest real estate bubbles in world are Toronto, Vancouver, Syndey, and Melbourne. I haven't seen pics of the city in a while but wow now I really understand what they are saying. Just hold on tight Tays, when the financial engineering keeping this global economy going finally runs out and the can can't be kicked down the road any longer hold on tight my friend.

This thing looks like one of those funky 90s-early 00s chinese supertalls. The dark blue glass and the protruding gold-colored glass section give this building a really funky vibe, for better or worse.

Good lord that's ugly!
I guess this was designed from the inside out of what I assume is an amenity level?

Any smoke filled photos of this tower for the New Year? You all need a break from the fires.

^ not many. Most people on SSC have completely wound down... From the Friday before Christmas through to the end of January: our summer school holidays. All union sites are shut for three or so weeks over the Christmas/New Year period... and the lack of activity leads to less photos.

Union sites were back last week (long after the smoke has gone).

What were they thinking? Just because you CAN build it doesn't mean you SHOULD...

this is a nice building.

its placed well re the skyline and the undulations make it interesting.

questioning the glass and maybe the resolve, but its u/c so lets wait and see.
