Definitely an impressive building!!

Just a philosophical point, massive shadows on the beach!, always a controversial issue?

the developers located the tower 80m back from the beach and angled the oval shaped tower facing southeast. It actually doesnt shadow the beach in the enforced hours (11am-2pm) winter. the top section of tower is "see-thru" so sun can pass through to beach.the shadows are actually welcomed in late afternoon in summer. it gets pretty damn hot on the beach and people dont mind the shade after a few hours of sun.

Cul, With that spin on it, you've almost sold the concept to me

Privately, I'd debate you otherwise. It's still a stunning building, and that's what the Goldcoast is all about (not my favourite place in oz tho).

Question: will the glass go all the way to the top of the fin? In the rendering it looks like it does.
