That article is full of height errors is it not?

Tell me otherwise, but I thought:

- Spirit is 298m above street (not 285m)
- Spirit at 298m will be 1m taller than Eureka, not pale in comparison
- A108 is 317m above street.
- Official height for One Queensbridge is not officially known yet. It may actuall be 324m above street. 323m height is currently just a place holder until proper plans are made available

So Forise Holdings is selling out of Spirit, flipping it to someone else already?

Spirit will be fine I think, work has already begun, but I have strong doubts that Orion and Imperial City will be easy-peasy 330m towers.

Spirit and Harry-T tower will be excellent additions to the GC, Orion and Imperial City will be bonuses if they happen (big if).

Edit: I may be confusing individual apartment sales vs entire project sale. The article Curtain posted isn't exactly clear which sale is happening?

Yeah the top floor with the infinity pool is at 285m it's often quote incorrectly as the height.

Not sure how you got that their selling out Spirit though?

Blue and white works perfect on the Gold Coast.

How will window cleaning work? Will there even be BMU window cleaning?

An interesting factoid, looking at it from the beach like in that render, it stands 304m high AHD, now you can't actually see the base of the tower from that angle because of the sand dunes and bushes so we can just pretend the base is 1.7m lower and effectively it *looks* like a supertall in terms of visual impact, because if you want AHD height, the sea is right there

Well you can blame the whiney body corporate in the Surfers International building behind for that.

Still, this version gels better with Soul I think, the original was a real fatty boombala, like 1/3rd wider than this version.
