We can break off to go to the toilet though right or do we all have to go to the toilet together?

Without releasing hands. Have to think creatively on how to aim.

I'm really anxious to see the cladding on this, I think it has the potential to either look amazing or turn out like Q1. It would probably look worse than Q1 though considering the design is quite simple where as the design of Q1 is its main feature.

I'm pretty sure at least one of those photos above was taken by me, but oh well. Here's more for Billbergia to nab:

This thing is gonna look pretty damn big from the Story Bridge. 1 Willy looks very close to the City Reach so this one is gonna look like it's joined at the hip to Waterfront Place and soar right to the heavens.

I thought this tower was circular but looking at the photos from above of the plan its not

Maybe once it gets higher it goes to a circular plan

Think of it as a bulging triangle with curves at the three corners.

I thought that walkway (current....beside 240 Margaret) was going to form part of the cross block link with Mary Lane) but by the looks of that big concrete wall they are putting up this mustn't be the case. Is that correct?

What big concrete wall? Are you talking about the one on the site boundary, or another one?

The cross block link doesn't run directly adjacent to the site boundary, but further inside the site, with retail tenancies lining either side.

It's the one on the site boundary. I couldn't work out what it was being a dividing wall to. I thought the entrance to 240's car park was the old walkway that they left after they finished the basement. All's good.

I need to take up drinking again.

All good. It's sometimes hard to visualise at this stage.
