I don't know if I like that teal colour very much.... The silver version was better.

I'm putting the colour down to a terrible render. I'd be expecting a colour similar to Waterfront Place in the flesh.

The render of the resi tower hasn't changed ( I don't think) but the render of the hotel (as posted today by PeterJackson) has most certainly changed compared to the one previously posted. The latest hotel has glass in it.

Oh look I ain't about to start complaining, because if sites like the Empire Square site tell us anything, it's that it can get a LOT, LOT, LOT worse.

It's still pretty cool. If this had been proposed originally, and I'd never seen the first design I'd say this is a great new tallie for Brizzy, but having seen the first design tempers things a bit.

The biggest issue is the glass, it looks like it's going to be the kind you find on Southport Central on the GC or in the Hilton on the GC, so basically not reflective. I imagine you'll be able to see the curtains through so it'll end up looking a bit ghetto like Q1.

At times like this I wish we'd do the Melbourne thing and just cover it in shiny gold glass. I don't get care if people catch fire on the street as a result, it's worth it!

What are you referring to by 'first design'. Vision?

I mean this version below which has the lovely London style office glass.

The new renders are not inaccurate, quite the opposite, I think it's deliberately rendered like that because it's no longer shiny.





Comparison from this:



...to this! You can see the effin curtains in the render even!


So I think it will look like this in reality:



Which basically, is shit, the Hilton gets away with it goes it's a nice design, but it dropped it from a 9/10 to a 7/10 tower.

true but they are just renders either way. The newest render does look very non reflective.. however it IS glass so its bound to be far more reflective than it appears. Wait and see what sort of glass starts going up.

The first render looks like they use the same textures as the vision render lol

Not the besssssst outcome for the tower but the render looks so cheap that it's difficult to know how it will really turn out. I certainly wouldn't call it a bad looking proposal, but just disappointing to see it watered down. I still prefer Vision at this site, but what are you gonna do? And anyway I'll believe it when I see this thing rising...

I think the design of the hotel looks hideous - why couldn't they keep the design of the office tower for the hotel??

Utterly the best resolved tower design we have seen in a while...
