The piloti at ground level works well and the balconies on the tower look funky.

Just my opinion of course, but as I say anyone expecting a masterpiece is expecting too much.

I agree and for the location it is more than acceptable. It adds rather than detracts from the skyline.

And despite all the objections of the brown/gold cladding it is actually fading (designed to do that?), looks stunning from afar and on a sunny day when the light gleams on it.

Nice work along the river.

Looking forward to a closer visit on my next city centre roundup.

I know it was previously reported that a famous face by the name of 'Pep' is said to be moving into Citysuites across the way from this building.

However, there's now a famous face said to be residing here at One Greengate, too.

I'm not taking the Myki, either...

The last time I strolled down this way about five years ago there was just a big muddy rain-filled hole here.

This building really thrives in the sun. I can only imagine how exquisite Exchange Court's cladding will look with this reflecting from it.
