Yeah level 19. Another 2 or 3 levels and it should break the 100m mark. But slooooooow going on that baby. I guess the size of the floor plates has a lot to do with it too.

It'll be interesting to see if the glass turns out as green/blue as the renderings depict.

heopfully it will. it will probably depend on the amount of sunlight it gets eg. if it is shadowed by QV1 or anything. i think it will look good no matter the colour tho.

They've started putting it on on the lower levels, it's very blue. Looks nice, although it looks to be a bit darker than the blue in the renderings.

The glass that is there always seems to be in shadow so it may be a few months before we know what it really looks like in the sunlight.

I saw it on Saturday and the core was on 19. It's starting to look more and more like an office tower with the floor plates are up at about 14/15 i think.

ive never been able to picture this building in the skyline for some reason. its so weird. i hear of new proposals of buildings in brisbane, melbourne etc see a rendering and i immediately hav a rough impression of wat it will look like. but ive never been able to do that with woodside. its so weird! and its my home city too which makes it even worse! oh well i guess ill eventually see it... keyword: eventually...
