Enough said.
Yeah, enough said...you couldn't of made yourself look like more of a wanker.

I just think Melburnianites don't like the thought if a 500,000 pop. city having the wood (or steel in this case) on them.

Honestly I think they should keep the spire the way it is now. Now, it perfectly fits the building...if they add another 30m the spire will simply be too tall.

^ it was originally 298m to tip which is 305m/1000ft above sea level ,which is height limit imposed by local Aviation Authority (CASA).But Sunland wanted to more impact so another 24m was added to design and was approved by council beause its just a spire. So now it will be 322.5m or 328m above sea level. planes have to keep an eye on it when passing.

So there is still 30m to go?!! From a distance the spire already looks huge enough, but from far away the fin is not very visible atm, so maybe when the glassing has finished it will look more proportional.

IMO the 30m extra spire won't looks too tall once the "fins" are fully cladded.

Have people started moving in to the lower floors yet? How far behind the exterior is the interior fit-out?

When can I move in??

Honestly it has to be Tower of the Year. Is there such a thing on these forums as Tower of the Year, maybe we should start a thread where people vote for the best tower of 2005. Just a thought.
