^ Really not a fan. Just looks too plain.

Good updates though

don't know what you were expecting, they were hardly going to start a new facade design half way up!

they've managed to throw in two levels of blue for no reason. the biggest problem from existing to new facade are the lime bands covering the floorplates, as opposed to black bands on lower levels - minor change for maximum cheap shithouse effect.

the flinders lane facade will be unbroken navy blue

Are they in the process of painting that building in the front left of the last pic there?

It's actually been like that since xmas. Don't know if they were trying something out, but hasn't progressed since then.

Shame because if they did what it looks like they were/are planning, that building would look so much better.

It has recently had a new ground floor fit-out and new artistic styled awning things attached. Looks much better than it did.

How much better does that newly painted building on the left hand side look? Noticed it being done when I was staying at Crown recently.

Strange. I hope the entire building gets the same update as it seem as though its just on the south face of the building.

Well of course they will do the entire building. You have to start somewhere and end somewhere and it is best to work from the top down, one facade at a time. Derrr!!!

They're doing the whole building. They've put put protective scaffolding over Queen Street today, assume this means they're now starting the front facade.

Kind of looks Mondrian-esque, love it from this view.
