Just remove that crazy yellow thing and you would have a very decent tower.

I assume the tumor is suppose to be a continuation to the 'block of gold' on top of Eureka?

I have to disagree the the gold feature breaks up what would be a fairly bland looking building.

It also breaks up any aesthetics.

Interesting looking tower to say the least, especially with those yellow looking structures protruding out that many have objectively mentioned.

Some new renders. Sales due to begin this month

The golden "starburst" section will apparently be clad in the same golden glass as the top of Eureka Tower.

Makes the 'starbust' look a little more appealing.

Finally a good lighting scheme for a Melbourne tower! Its disappointing to see no display lights on the Eureka at night.

I like it a lot. Melbourne will have a kick-ass skyline with this building. You know, it kinda makes me a bit jealous as Sydney is supposed to be the biggest city yet Melbourne is reaching another league when skylines are factored in.

Love the curved edges. Hopefully the yellow bit won't be too offensive in real life. Maybe people will find it endearing after awhile or associate it with Melbourne.

Helpful for tourists...

"Where you guys at? We're trying to find you?"

"Oh, we are right below the big building with the weird yellow bit. Walk towards that".

And even more:

Now 317m in height after CULWULLA contacted the architect for accurate height info. Change the title?

Sales underway with the first batch of apartments offered up at a Singapore release almost 70% sold !!

http://www.stproperty.sg/articles-pr...nched/a/187070

Mostly the cheaper apartments below the gold starburst which is no surprise. Let's just hope it's good enough to go to construction. If they sell all the lower section and a 1/3rd of the upper section (which starts at A$1.5M) I would say definitely so ..

A great video with some brilliant moving panorama rendering here courtesy of Ryan at http://urbanmelbourne.info
