I will reserve judgment but for this location and for being Sydney's tallest tower it really needs a stand out, non conformist, design. Is Sydney going to miss that chance yet again?
Fingers crossed they don't.

Sydney has been my home since 2003..... but I do find the skyline and skyscrapers so safe and uninspired. I hope this changes.

I have hope that some of the other blocks around Spring St will hit 300m soon.

This is not an architecture forum nor an urban planning. Not an artists or aesthetes forum. We are not the activated podium club nor the preserve the parkland brigade, though many of our posters have interests in all these topics and different views.

But we all like tall buildings. This is a tall building forum. Skyscrapercity. The name couldn't be more plain.

I think this Fosters + Partners tower will be impressive once completed.

I cannot get remotely excited about the International Towers - all three of them are very unimpressive - my opinion of course.

Are you doing a Melbourne-based TITO* by any chance?

Couldn't agree more. I first saw them from the open air deck at the star a year or two ago. Being built they were very impressive. The bulk was something that was so different to what was common.
