GOLD COAST | Q1 Tower | 323m | 78 fl | Com

thought id dedicate a thread to the next WORLDS TALLEST APARTMENT TOWER!
The Q1 Tower in Surfers Paradise, GC, QLD,Australia.
The 78storey 527 unit tower is modelled from Sydney's Olympic Torch.
The core has recently topped out at 240m. The enormous glass fin structure will start soon to reach 275m and then the spectacular 100m long spire will be attached to the front and will reach 322.5m high surpassing current tallest apartment tower in Dubai (269m 21StC tower)!
Its title as worlds tallest apartment tower will be sort lived as the 351m Eureka in Melbourne is set to top out later in year.

Funny thing is, in that first pic you probably won't be able to see the spire

Soul - 240m (approved)


Circle on Cavil - 219m and 158m (UC)


Dolphin Towers - 170m and 126m (approved)


Then there is the mysterious Transit site tower which could be as tall as 301m

Beautiful tower! Loved it ever since I saw the ad in the newspapers last last year.

I wonder how are the apartments like at the sloping setbacks, sloping windows?
