Eureka's core has just risen and is only one more rise away to topping out!

Maybach i bleeped it out for you . Btw i agree with your comment. i think compertion is good between the two it half the reson there growing such big towers but when people start saying negative things about each others cities it is childish (you can say one city is better but dont say one city is crap) always look on the bright side of things.... as for americans the iggnorant ones say what you will.

Not a very descent comment to make about people who are different than you. Are there no ignorant people in your neck of the woods?

I'm Canadian and I don't think we are any better than Americans or Australians. Just different.

Actually Eureka is perfectly named (try Google for an explanation) and the stripes are fine. This is not a great building folks. It's a tall building. Good for Melbourne.. at least you "can build tall".

As for the Mel/Syd rivalry... (admitted outsider) when i the argument comes done to weather you know it's a tie and somebody wants to win.... Melbourne has a wet reputation but the Sydney Olympics were one week away from being rained out... (imagine the tourism impact if the world knew).

Having never been to either city... but learned a bit about both...I think Melbourne kicks Sydney's butt. I don't give a **** about aerial postcard pictures "cause I'm usually walking on the ground.

Me too. Seriously, though - makes me wonder what is the average age of people posting here? So many behave like children.

Thanks for that Cul - Eureka looks in good company there with the early C20 NY scrapers (Chrysler, 40 Wall, Woolworth, ?Met. Life Tower).

What's the one behind 40 Wall Street next to Taipei 101 - looks a bit like the Bank of America building in Atlanta but it's not that...

I saw the skyline in the F1 race and it's really nice now (not that it wasn't before) and Eureka is dominant.

Yep I HATE/LOATH THE MAST- it ruins the building just as the cladding on southern cross station ruins the station, its all kinda mediocre.

Hmm, passing judgement before completion on both? Personally I think that the Southern Cross Station roof is going to look spectacular... I am undecided on the Eureka mast as of yet, I will see how that looks when done. The more I am seeing it in renders and on Cul's model though I am coming to like it.

Currently, it's 290 m high, but the mast will reach 351 m when completed.

We do not know how the mast will look. It will be an extention of the original building's height rather than a spire/antenna. This is just a concept design. Let's wait until the designers reveal to the public their final completed rendering. Heck, its almost to the roof. Soon enough we will know how it will look in its competed form. Still 351m is nothing to laugh at. The observatory at the top would be equivalent to 107 floors on this building's floor ratio. Also, it would be 11m higher than the Jin Mao observatory and about the same height as the upper deck of the Oriental Pearl Tower. The new observatory on Eureka would be higher than the roofs of John Hancock Center, Aon Center, and Trump Tower all in Chicago.

Nothing to sneeze at.
