I'm still hoping that the decorative facade will be installed over the concrete.

Its a matter of
[when they paint it]; It will create the contrasting effect. I think the render of the wave glass is meant to be reflecting the sky at that certain angle, I can see near the top, in a small part, it is the dark glass, like the actual glass is.

I'm pretty sure this is the most up to date render for the Hotel, not the one posted on the last page.

You would hope so, if you look closely the tile design on the side is designed to match the podium facade

We know you love us. Sorry about the really crappy weather - however we REALLY need the rain. It practically hasn't rained since about April.

same for Sydney.

I do like Brizzy, perhaps next year I can shrug of my jinx (a year ago I got cold wet weather going back to Melbourne where I'd lived) and see more. Maybe the Gold Coast won't be closed (last went there in '81)

Hope your wharves are all upgraded by then!

Howard Smith will be, but Queens Wharf will take a bit longer.

A little rain never hurt anyone, that's why they invented the umbrella

You guys are reading too much into a short sentence.

On a VERY rainy school night there's bugger all to do in the Brisbane CBD.

Lockout laws only relate to life after 1:30am and are thus completely irrelevant.

Is every thread in Australia SSC forums going to be Sydney vs Melbourne vs Brisbane? Getting tiring.

Eastern thanks for that render looks accurate. Looking forward to March to see what it looks like.
