I don't know, why you guys don't like this golden thing. It makes the tower unique and it let the tower be varied.

Hopefully once it's built it would look better. Hard to decide from the render.

For me it's two things: it breaks up the strong vertical lines, and makes the whole thing visually top-heavy. The shape isn't ugly in itself, but I think it takes away from a very strong underlying form.

It's kinda nice to see someone dislike the Star Burst without being childish and calling them "duckbeaks"

Add QBT, Aurora + Northern cluster to that image all U/C this time next year and I'd be a very happy banana ..

Local sales are finally about to commence for Australia's first Supertall ..



Apparently preview sales are already well advanced of where we thought they were, so hopefully on track for a commencement of construction in Q3 2015.

MELBOURNE | Australia 108 | 319m | 1047ft | 100 fl | App

Thanks to Papa Riddlz - a fantastic new 3 minute video for Australia 108 as it nears it's domestic launch after a successful sales campaign in Asia.



Several local media articles this week confirming construction is expected to commence mid year with Brookfield Multiplex (who recently completed the 254m Prima Pearl also in Melbourne) the leading contender to win the building contract.

Its official, they're gonna begin construction halfway through this year. Should be completed some time in 2019.

Originally I was a bit skeptical about the design but seeing these latest renders makes a big difference. I think it'll fit right into Melbourne's burgeoning skyline.

Wish I could afford the penthouse on the 100 floor, imagine waking up each morning to that view.

Here's a quick edit as to what Aus108 would look like without the Star Burst.

To me it looks bland and boring without it

Nice job Papa and 100% agree it looks unfinished and unbalanced without it.

I think the star burst is one of the most brilliantly original pieces of skyscraper design anywhere, it's very Melbourne and very Asia at the same time representing the two major cultures the tower will attract, and of course will complement Eureka beautifully.
