That's a shame, would have gotten an awesome 360 degree view too. From the ranges over the sprawling suburbs, the city and out into Moreton Bay, sigh.

Brisbane is lucky to have the small rolling mountains/hills nearby.

That proposal wouldn't get my support. Although the view from top would be nice I'm sure.

Do you mean the concept in general, or just that particular design

I think the design could be improved a lot, but the concept is great. Heaven forbid tourists actually have something to do in Brisbane!

yeah, I'm just not a fan of something like that on mt cootha. Granted it would be a good tourist destination, but I like the natural appearance of the hills that without something distracting like an ob tower.

I know Mt cootha already has the radio towers, but they aren't well visible.

I'm just a fan of the natural hilly appearance brissy has on its doorstep, and the fact that that undisturbed natural asset makes a great background to many photos, and makes a great vista from many brissy suburbs.

I just think an ob tower would stand out too much.

Yeah fair point, I'm not overly fussed about it given the potential it has to sabotage a city based OB deck.

Well I brought it up as a possible solution to the CASA city height limit issue. Though I am not a radar technician so I dont know if it would work, or if there are other solutions that are alot easier.

Aside from GoMA..... and eating out and shopping.... does Brissy have any major destinations?

GoMA is fantastic though..... one of the best in the nation, if not the world.

Yeah, I'd be a big fan of an observation tower on Mt. coot-tha to be honest. If it was a good design, it would be an instant and good landmark that, with the Story Bridge, would be an instant ID of Brisbane.

Depends on what you want to do really. One example that comes to mind, for people into rockclimbing and/or abseiling, Brisbane probably has one of the best inner city rockclimbing locations of any capital city, by way of the Kangaroo Point Cliffs.

#UC: Brisbane Skytower - 89st / 270m / residential

Well Mt Cootha already has towers and likely will for many decades to come, if a tower could provide relatively low visual impact and consolidate the need of the other towers then it would be a good tourist attraction..

Getting a little sidetracked now but I can envisage Mt Cootha becoming a fantastic tourist attraction for Brisbane with the right guidance.

Anyone know how many core floors in Brisbane Skytower have been poured by now?

Somebody on here (I thought Peter Jackson) said that he would be able to give us daily updates.....not that I expect that.....when he got back to Brisbane.

How deep is the basement again...8 floors? Should take less than a couple of months to reach ground level.

I think a tower similar to Telstra tower in Canberra would be cool for Brissy.

When do we expect this building to be 'out of the ground' and going up?

Because this is such an unusual below ground build (ie. the core being built inside an otherwise completed basement), I'm honestly not sure. It could be a quicker build due to it only being the core being built and not the whole basement, or it could take longer due to difficulty in building it this way.

Still looks like this from the street. Took this about an hour ago.

The car park is open to the public though, maybe it's worth checking out from inside.
