Oh hang on I see, you have put a 1 instead of a 2.

Man I thought I had missed some important info there.

To roof, yes, but Q1 will be taller to structural tip (spire). However it looks like Eureka will be getting a spire too now, so Eureka may very well end up being the undisputed champion.

heh...i guess melbournians can't take the fact that eureka would never get to enjoy the world's tallest residential building title.

man, this sears/petronas roof/spire dispute's repeating itself over and over again. you can see it also in the swfc/taipei 101 dispute. personally, i still see eureka as a taller building since q1's spire's ultra cheap (don't get me wrong, q1's a cool building, even if i don't recognize as a wtr). i don't think eureka should add a cheap structure to its top just to beat q1's spire. it'll just ruin its look.

^ Q1 will top out at 322.5m to spire about mid year. Eureka in melbourne will now have a 50m mast on top which will bring height to 351m. so that will take over as worlds tallest resi. so Q1 will enjoy being worlds tallest for a few months! even without spire, Q1 is 275m which is heigher then any resi tower atm!

Shame isnt it.

Spires and shit on top .. not for Architectural reasons, but to cheaply snatch the title of worlds tallest residential.

Makes me wish Dubai would announce a 500m Resi, that way Q1 and Eureka could either attach a radio mast on top, or get over the childish crap and treat the buildings with Architectural respect (ie remove the stupid spire from eureka.. and stop claiming Q1 is the tallest resi)

Q1 has got to be the cheapest attempt at 'tallest' claim ever.
I mean Petronas towers had a spire, thats cheap..

But Q1 actually tops out at 245m.. Then a hollow shell.. Then finally a stick


NONE of which would bother me in the slightest if they didnt prance about claiming its the tallest.

Yeah I agree.

As a Vic, I dont mind Q1 at all, I think its a great achievement, and the amazing views from it and of it, from across the sea.

I DO mind hollow claims.

But business is business and ego's are inflatable.

No doubt Eureka's spire has a lot to do with deflating Soheil's.

Not sure Grollo pride was entirely at ease with handing over the tallest title to an "upstart"

Will the final facade look like that? It's very different from the gleaming, glossy rendering...

it was interesting to hear about the basejumpers who took the lift up to look at the display (43rd flr) then ran up the rest of the floors and jumped off.. what a claim to fame!!
funny thing they don't allow bags/backpacks up there anymore
