Yeah almost Aleks.
It's just 'Roo-oh , Zandell'
The Queensland Government after seeing a massive drop in tourism in the early 21 century to such destinations as Dubai decided to invest a large amount of dollars in an upcoming design firm to inject new life into the rather boring and seemingly unorganised market .

The company, Ruo -Xandell founded by masterminds Marcus Ruo and Harry Xandell made a huge impact on the QLD tourism industry , The people of Queensland are so impressed with the organization and it's success and true leadership qualities that 90% of Queenslanders voting public and many other Aussies showed support when Harry Xandell ran for State Premier . 3 years on he is now Prime Minister of Australia

He renamed the city they first developed Ruo-Xandell shortly after

If that's how your stuff looked like when you started, then there is still hope for me!

Keep up the fine work, I'm a fan.

Well looks like i have to scrap the Qantas tower cos the file is 18 mb HeyZues Christ !!



So I have to explain why it should be Freedom tower



With wide ' STRIPED 'windows - think ! , 13 British colonies!!
The star shaped roof , Um i think you get it huh ? Freedom !!!

Cali? Idaho? Florida?

There are 13 colonies:
o Province of New Hampshire, later New Hampshire
o Province of Massachusetts Bay, later Massachusetts and Maine
o Colony of Rhode Island and Providence Plantations, later Rhode Island
o Connecticut Colony, later Connecticut.
o Province of New York, later named to New York and Vermont[1]
o Province of New Jersey, later New Jersey
o Province of Pennsylvania, later Pennsylvania
o Delaware Colony (before 1776, the Lower Counties on Delaware), later Delaware
o Province of Maryland, later Maryland
o Colony and Dominion of Virginia, later Virginia, Kentucky and West Virginia
o Province of North Carolina, later North Carolina and Tennessee
o Province of South Carolina, later South Carolina
o Province of Georgia, later Georgia

and the star thing is a cool idea. Maybe a 5 sided star would be cool since the stars in the flag are 5 sided. But too bad you have to scrap it. It was a nice building. It just needed a taller, thicker spire.

eh I just meant it would represent the same as what the flag represents ,
The building would be affectionately known as Stars and Stripes and yer theres 13 stripes on the flag

The design and relationship to the flag was a coincidence anyway

and yer the only part that doesn't fit is the non 5 sided star , ah well

i still think it would be cool


I might just finish it and present it as a single development

I like the facade, but I think you should split the two down the middle and make a twin tower concept. The building as a whole looks too bulky.

Wow, awesome. I missed that. The tower looks O.k with me but maybe it's too short. What's the height of this tower?
