Tenders for both the office tower and resi tower should be closed now so it shouldn't take too long before successful applicant/s are announced somewhere.

Yes but LA unlike most Australian cities has two towers over 300m not to mention another 10 towers over 200m (Adelaide has none LOL)

LA has only one supertall to roof height; Melbourne, Sydney and Brisbane all have much more "intensive" skylines in proportion to their population.

The reason that LA's skyline is short has nothing to do with earthquakes, but rather a combination of zoning that induces sprawl, a poly-centric urban form, lack of demand until recently for CBD assets and economic viability. San Francisco, Tokyo, Istanbul, Santiago, Mexico City, Seattle and Vancouver are all on fault lines with significant and growing skylines.

Maybe it was filmed around 300 George. Better check that project out again and have a bit of a chat about what's going on there. **** possible world earthquakes and world tallies.

It was filmed at 111 Eagle Street and the Eagle street end of Elizabeth Street.

I work in 111 Eagle and it was so weird seeing my office building fall apart on TV.

Well yes I have holidayed in LA many times.... and until very recently downtown LA was a bad word, now all the cool people are moving back into it. Or nearby it.

The crane next to the apartment tower core doesn't appear to be one of those that can jump (to my untrained eye). Does this mean it will be replaced or does it meant they have not actually committed to complete the apartment tower at this time and therefore don't need a crane that can go higher.

Gotta be the biggest construction site for a single development in the country right now surely. This is going to make a huge impact on Brisbane's already impressive skyline.
