I wasn't even aware that this tower is already u/c since a couple of months.

This will really dramatically change Brisbane's skyline when seen from South Brisbane.

Very nice design, just like the new Soleil tower. It almost looks like they are designed as twin towers. Are both constructionsites close to eachother? And is there a rendering avalaibe with both towers in the skyline?

Here's an image with both towers superimposed on the skyline (by Locke)



The sites are actually on opposite sides of the city, but I wouldn't have it any other way. Hopefully over time they'll set a precedence for height in their respective parts of the city.

This end of the city centre has so much potential ... and the Kurilpa Bridge makes Brisbane's cultural precinct very accessable.

I thought these were twins. I'm not wrong in thinking they look pretty similar? This has to be a pretty rare event, having two buildings which could be twins built almost at the same time some distance from each other?

They're built by the same developer and designed by the same architectural firm, using pretty much the same materials and identical glass. However, Infinity is octagonal in shape and Soleil (the other building) isn't.
