#Completed: Vision - 6st/res (Cairns)

Vision, Cairns
Description:
Quote:
Live luxuriously on the Cairns Esplanade. The dress circle site for Vision, located slightly away from the hustle and bustle of the Cairns Esplanade, demanded a visionary approach from its designers. The linear shape of the site, its 2 street frontage and Esplanade orientation have provided the designers with the opportunity to build the most eye catching apartments. Vision explores new parameters for luxurious CBD living.

It is quite simply an architectural work of art. The building gracefully meanders from its Esplanade frontage to its Abbott Street entrance with generous 2 and 3 bedroom apartments.

Vision provides the contemporary relaxed surroundings of modern city lifestyle. Step directly outside onto the award winning Esplanade and experience the stimulating living experience found only within Cairns. Take a dip in the stunning Lagoon pool, stroll to the Marina or dine at the selection of alfresco restaurants, cafés and bars. Take in an exhibition, a film or comb the many stores in Cairns for a truly ultimate shopping experience.


Render:



^Very long but not so tall.

Construction Update:



^Curtosy from my mate in Townsville's sister city Cairns.

Looks as if they have changed the design on this one look at the picture compared to the render everything is straight and pokes out the one getting built is curvey and has round pillars also Townsvilleians its the T1 crane apparently .

Um, i think that it still looks very much the same as the render in terms of shape, its only just the different angles that both the render and picture are set gives it that feel. I can't see any straight line in that render other than those going vertical, the balconies are curved.

In regards to the crane, this one has been up since January 2007, i have the pictures to prove this as well, and the fact that it is orange too (But of course they could always give it a paint between now and then) seems to suggest that it is not. So unfortunetely, this isn't the T1 crane.

That was the T1 crane. Now it's not the vision crane or the Citi Central crane. Could it the Centrepoint crane with a paint job? Either that or it's not in Cairns anymore or is hiding for the 16 level residential tower next to Citi Central?

Anyway here is the Centrepoint crane:

It just might be in storage who knows it may not be in use for a while yet. Or it could come back to Townsville for T2?

I just noticed that the saint is in that picture of the crane
Also i was reading through the old posts of the Townsville projects thread and it says that T2 was scrapped. Obviously this isn't the case. With the Centrepoint crane I don't see why Hedley would want to paint it the black paint looks new anyway.

Anyway here is the Centrepoint crane:
The Centrepoint crane has been in Cairns for the last few years, no paint job or nothing. It was used on Piermonde, then on Axis, and now Centrepoint.

As Sean stated, T1 Walker is going through a rough patch, first hailed as one of the biggest projects in Townsville's history, then touted as Townsville's next tallest building, now its more like, Townsville's Most delayed building.

Awesome, haven't really seen anything from the Abbott street side of Vision. Though, my only criticism is that this one should be a few metres taller than Rydges next door.

No it won't be it's only got another level to go and the tradewinds is fairly tall. It just looks that way from the angle I got but it would be about only a level lower than the holiday inn next door. Ill get another shot sometime
