I like the location and scale of this building, and it looks decent too, but the top of it vaguely resembles a pair of lungs : /.

The building site looks much smaller then the I had thought... as the building itself looks very wide?

It's a fairly big site for the CBD. You could probably fit both Santos Place and 400 George St on it.

Really looking fwd to this one. And I'm glad it's 'fat' - Brisbane has far too many skinny talls. Some of them look ridiculously thin for their height.

The only other building with similar width would be Waterfront Place... and yes the two Meriton towers are super skinny towers - I much prefer Infinity out of the two.

Hopefully some more development will start in the area to help balance it out. I'm pretty ignorant of what's going in Brisbane at the moment. How many talls are going up in the next few years?
