How did you guess, I actually have been looking into the legality of this, as I have the capability through a friend.

When it comes to construction updates, I always try to go...above and beyond

Watch this airspace.

We had to get a drone launch in the city recently for our work, and had to jump through various legal loopholes to do it. In the end it was too hard in the timeframe we had, and our client was risk adverse.

I think Baroque was before my time, anyone got pics? Also what was on this site before the vision hole? I legitimately can't remember anything but the hole

Here is Baroque. It was a pretty cool building.

A tin she'd for a car park was what was here beforehand.

I think I'm happier with Skytower. I kind of don't like to go too far out there. Leave that for those countries that do. There are so many buildings overseas that make me go YUK!!!

I'm a bit more on the prudish side. Mind you, I definitely would like to see a swing away from our flat roof syndrome and straight walls. That's what I liked about Vision. It had a bow in it, slanted roof and from the Eastern end, layers of walls.

It's pretty ugly regardless of how far out there it is. There are far better examples of twisting towers than that thing

Also glad we didn't get it.

I saw a presentation on the influence of drones and their use seems to be heavily regulated here in Australia. Probably to stop things like this
from happening.
