There are no files up yet anyway, so even if you get it to work you won't be able to see anything until probably tomorrow.

The anticipation in unbearable. This is like the straight to DVD sequel to the blockbuster that was Empire Square, only for 1/10th the budget, with shitty CGI and starring Kylie Minogue and Steven Seagal.

Really disappointing knowing what was approved, however it is a cute little filler.

LMAO has to be one of the biggest come downs in Brisbane's history. The biggest disappointment of 2010 in terms of Brisbane projects!! It looks like it is in mourning for Empire Square, don't like it one bit.

Not real street activation there - a straight down line the office building. I so much prefer having treasury row there as it is at least interesting to have some shops there for Elizabeth St, and adds character to that part of the street. I was never happy with Treasury Row being demolished to make way for Empire but it was a sacrifice I was willing to bear to have a quality proposal. But for this? No thanks. Keep Treasury Row I say.

Treasury Row itself isn't any bit loss, it never was what I would consider attractive. I'm more disappointed about the loss of what could have been a very cool little alley way around the back of Treasury Row, and the old warehouse and the little indie coffee shop it houses.

If something spectacular was going to replace it, I wouldn't be as sad about it as I am about having this fat boy sitting there!

If you look at the Public Domain Engagement Report you will notice that pedestrian access would still be provided to the rear of the tower.

IMO, I'm not unhappy. Yes it is small, but it isn't just a simple box. If Empire had never been proposed I doubt many of you would care. There are many other sites for a tower like Empire to go.

This is a small site.

That provided access is to one of the other alleys that runs between Elizabeth St, Albert St and Charlotte St (there's one that runs behind Elizabeth House, and another running down beside the Telstra site.)

Looking at the elevations on here, it appears that this will take out the alley way I'm referring to, and the old warehouse where the coffee shop is. Both are directly behind Treasury Row, with the warehouse between it and the Telstra building. Check out the site on Google Maps, you will see what I'm talking about.

I understand, and yes it was a cool little location for a coffee shop so hopefully they will relocate to a cool laneway elsewhere.

I hope so! I do know that there will be a lot of people who will miss them if they can't find a similar kind of venue to set up in! They have quite a following, despite being in a position that gets no passing traffic really.

Getting back to the building, do we know how much retail space they'll be putting in? It's probably in the plans I know, but I'm at work and can't access PD Online.

Oh dear, did they only render the podium, maybe they had the tower objects set to invisible in render properties? What a schoolboy error.

Seriously! Might as well keep Treasury Row.

I mean... What. The. Frak.

Time to retitle pleaze:

#Audacity to be Proposed/The Stump - 1FL/3m /Com (pletey crap)

How the frek did Grollo escape from Mordor to do this to us. I thought he was a Mexican, but he's a Mexi-can't! It actually looks like a stump, like someone came along and fell the beautiful green leafy tower that was Empire and all that is left is this dry, withered up stump.

I can't wait to see what he does to Trilogy!
