Here's a render of the winning design by Fitpatrick & Partners from the ground up

I love the podium, it has some serious potential for LED lighting to creep up the 'cracks' and could be an interesting addition to Sydney's annual light exhibit, Vivid Sydney

Due to Sydney's extremely complicated planning system, this has just gone in as a 'Stage 2 Proposal' with the State Government's Department of Planning.

Was there a design change or something? I think there was a previous design/proposal for this side. That proposal had an open lobby almost as high as the white building on the left, am I right? What happend to it?

Unfortunately, yes there has been a design and height change.

This was the previous concept:

205M/30L

However the site was acquired for the construction of a new CBD substation and as such the soaring atrium was scrapped and the building has been redesigned at a reduced height.

I much prefer the current concept! They better stick to it and not dumb it down like they so often do because the proposed design is just awesome.

The current design is interesting but it lacks the sheer boldness of the previous proposal (which was 216m too). Just check out the incredible lobby and the elevated ceiling!

Agreed. Can they not tell shit from shinola. F*ck economic restraints, because if we consider that every time we build something, we are going to end up with second rate crap.
