Australia 108 now up to Level 39 (in the core box) ..





Cul if your listening - that means the top of the core is at Level 40 slab or 122m above ground .. pretty amazing theres still 195m or a Collins Place tower to go on top of this !!!'

EDIT: I stuffed up it's Level 37/38 in the box and Level 39 slab so 119m above ground .. by comparison Aurora is now Level '45' (missing floors included) or 126m above ground ..

I think Spirit is going to be joining the supertall club, if it already hasn't, and I think it's cos of Harry T.

What makes me say this, well, spirit's website is launching soon, here's lots of pics here from a designer working on it:

http://www.matthewshannon.co.uk/forise/goldcoastspirit/

All looking very purty but the eagle-eyed will notice the design has slightly changed, namely, the roof looks taller.

Here is an older render from the AFR:


And here is the new render:





Notice the bit up top, that's going to be a height lift I suspect.

Old:


New:


Old:



New:



So notice in all shots the new bit up top.

That should comfortably take it over 300m.

Course none of this is official but that's my theory and I'm sticking with it.

The Gold Coast will become our top skyline if it keeps going like this.

Melboutne has the talls. Sydney has the beautiful natural setting.

The Gold Coast has both.

It's naturally got what Dubai is spending millions and millions on.

A pair of real verus fake.

Yep, it looks like a taller hairstyle pushing out past 300m, unless shrinkage happened elsewhere (unlikely).

Be good to find out for sure; some detective work needed.

Spirit has genuine width and bulk, it's going to look massive in the flesh.

If you don’t know fact?
Soul Tower was go ahead but crisis cause slow down to finally finished building 2012 but supposedly open 2011 more than 14 months late We are have here now
If Spirit Tower go ahead (they’re doing drill) no crisis come back then they would be construction until complete probably 2020-2022 (I not sure how long they doing drill done)
Spirit Tower and Soul Tower may be only two skyscrapers survive construction in Australia
Because they come up with name could push them people to construction
Australia 108 Tower I think something interesting about 108 someone that age?
If English not good.... need stop blah blah .... just news ... move on

Perheps is a genuine contributor. His English is not perfect but he posts genuinely informative posts in the Qld forum.

Surprise time celebrations time
Australia Beside Beach Tower officially name not surprise tower
467 metre 127 floors are Residence and hotel also casino
6X 318 metre 89 floors residents 620 apartment each
12X 257 metre 77 floors all of them mixed use
27X 202 metre 62 floors all of them mixed use
Confirmed this would be building..... bombshell plan .... not far Ballina
But would be announcing in 2024 October then beginning construction 15 years building
Only one find bedrock in Australia thank old volcano 35 millions ago
Pour over this 400,000 population and making them circles City ... bird view
This only nimby is accept that ... just farmers area can Building no flatter ground
I have see architecture drawing.... if skyscrapercity OZ would crying for 467 metre
Imagine driving alongside supertall toward you .... finishing on 2050
This development would be $70 Billions no house any at all
Vision/proposed for now

Nice! So a fantasy about a single development of 46 skyscrapers including 7 supertalls...near Ballina. Is...is perheps actually BSD?

No .... I work architecture same building
Around the world 1,092 architecture have plan architecture option for this
Won’t announcements until 2024 October
Every person is plan architecture .... unfortunately I don’t know who they are
Australian is more room than anywhere in world
Ballina only place bedrock in Australia can hold up 2 kilometre high
I was visited Ballina I noticed test drill about 25 of them there
This look like real life then I went back again none of them there
I suspect this would be plan 7 year test drill until announcing 2024

No, way too small.

perheps needs to go back into Simcity and dream far bigger.

At least 5 towers greater than 400m, 15 greater than 300m and 58 towers greater than 200m.

Weak effort by perheps, embarrassing really.

Aussie 108 finally show it's first set of white stripes ..







The stripes are meant to be light up at night - perhaps even with some vertical animation ? Either way the gap between them keeps narrowing by 1 as we go up to the top - reminiscent of Jin Mao's design which I can say having seen in person creates a great effect of looking even taller than it is (especially lit up at night) ..



cul - if you're listening the core is at Level 40 slab or 122m above ground. Floors are at Level 28 or 85m above ground.

As I've said before you really have to be standing up close to appreciate how big this thing is. That podium seems to get more massive as the tower gets taller. Anyone visiting Melbourne should make the effect to walk down Southbank behind Eureka and check it out up close in person.
