Some rough estimates here, the roof is lower than I thought

108 floors? Damn. Not even 1 WTC has that many. In fact, I think the Willis Tower is the only building in the US to have that many floors. Consider yourselves fortunate Australians!

I fail to see how this looks like anything in dubai. It looks very australian to me. Mostly because it's pretty much just two of my favourite australian towers mashed together. (All three by the same architects)

The star in the middle just reminds me of the wings from world tower. The lighthouse-esque cube of light has been borrowed from world tower as well...



...and they've just been put on a eureka tower shaped base.



...and then turned purple.

China is gonna erect the World's Tallest in 90 days... should be ~840m tall and compleated by late march 2013!

Interesting to see who finishes first, cause China's may be really fast, but Austrailla's is half the height... Ready, set.. go!

"star bar", because a "sky bar" doesn't sound high enough!

I like the height but I not the design, too much going on. Looking way all over the place.

This looks so much better.

That middle part in the original ruins the entire towers' look in my opinion.

No No No, trust me you will warm to it. It looks like a boring pedestrian building when you take it away.

I think I might like this one. That's not a very good render but this looks like it could be decent.

This belongs to Benidorm and not Melbourne.

I would say at least 90% of people, including myself, shared your reservations about the design on first sighting - but I find that, seen in its Melbourne setting [pic below] this design does rapidly grow on you. In fact I now think Katsilidis has shown some kind of genius in finding something that captures the complex angularity of Melbourne design, and which sits comfortably with his Eureka Tower close by.

I exclude the awful podium shown in the early renders [2nd pic] from this favorable reappraisal - but I assume that is one aspect of the design that will be revised, and made over. The suggestion is that Eureka's podium was adopted for the convenience of an early public announcement of the project.





Meantime, signs seem good that this will be approved and proceed pretty rapidly [3-5 years] to become Australia's first true supertall .
