I love how a city of only half a million is home to Australia's SECOND tallest building! I enjoyed viewing the pictures too! Good photos

WOW! Maybe they should have used a bit of gold colour glass to give it that type look in real life. A real life Gold Tower on the Gold Coast ... works for me!

The cladding looks nothing like the renders. That puke green spandrel/glass combo is absolutelyu despised here (overuse). Great shape and height. What a shame about the cladding.

^ Kinda agree, the original renders show Q1 as a sharp crystal blade that would shine and glitter. The cladding is a bit dissapointing but overall I still like the tower
