Is the building from the ground up 130m? or is that just the building and then we add the podium height to it, because it looks way taller than 130.

This one kicks ass over Rialto. A simple design where all sides are the same. Very striking.

Looks like the core now surrounded by a white box at the top of the construction has virtually reached its full height. The equivalent to approx. 2 levels for the crown will add slightly more height for Civic to reach its full height of 132m above ground.

BTW I have a feeling that colourbond type sheeting beginning to cover the diagonal transfer structure is acting as a mold for the ribbed radial concrete.

Muse,

When the colourbond first appeared I made the observation that I hoped that wouldn't be the finished product - it'll be a real "garage door" look.

The challenges of pumping concrete into moulds at that angle will be tricky - and perhaps it would have been easier to have precast the panels and then assemble them onsite.

We will just have to wait and see.

I was looking at Civic from Central today and appears to becoming more dominant on the skyline from Central, sticking out behind Mirramar and the Regis Towers. I've been impressed with it's progress.

That pic reinforces what I posted yesterday about it becoming increasingly dominant from the south. If the TNT Tower's were a block or two to the east, it would of appeared even better.

It's domiance over the southern CBD skyline increases as you head further out. It stands out at bit better from St Peters, and from Monterey, it's even a bit more dominant.
