Sweet, we're already on level 89! Actually, we're zooming past 89!

Some shots from this afternoon. The thing that dissapoints me most about Skytower is 212 on Margaret constantly casting its dark shadow onto the side of the building. Makes it hard to appreciate the glass facade in its full glory. Density heh. I guess that wont be such a problem once Skytower is almost triple its height though.

I've always been too impatient. Whilst I'm really enjoying this one going up I really can't wait for 30 Albert St to get started. Then I remember that The One is (hopefully) also on the go. Exciting times.

Let's face it anyway. We watch and watch and watch, wishing a building was finished. Then within two bloody weeks we're over it wanting the next one. I feel more secure knowing that the next one or two have already started.

the weight of the buildings with darker glass facades like Skytower, Waterfront Plaza, Albian and even 1 William St in the skyline are shifting the balance of the skyline colour away from beige concrete to blue glass.

No it's not a CT anymore and those that think that are stuck in a long-dead past.

The glass on Skytower is really nice too.

There's still loads of people that call Brisbane a country town, the term's dying off just like "Bris-vegas" but it's still used.

Here are the signs for the Downtown Entry and the temporary office. I honestly didn't think people would be moving in to it so soon, so I've been proven wrong.

I wonder whether there is a discounted rent program if you move in now considering that the tower will still be U/C for another 12 months or so

Supply and demand suggests that you would get a discounted price for a building still under construction, I stayed in the Meriton buildings when they were still u/c, massively discounted prices and the construction had zero impact on my hotel room.

I can't get my head around moving people in now, sure generates revenue, and sure it's now standard practice, but still a bit odd. I'm sure the safety issue is fine too these days, but if they are willing to put up with noise then so be it.

The neighbouring building is probably coping it more.

I wonder how they deal with infrastructure normally found on the top of buildings like this (e.g. HVAC stuff or water tanks for fire systems) when the building hasn't even topped out yet? Do buildings this tall have intermediate plant floors where such infrastructure has been built? (including any ventilation to the outside world required to make HVAC systems function properly)
