Thanx guys - I had it a level too high and now amended it - CTRL and F5 to get more accurate version.

The real thing is going to be very slick!

Acctually the top floor penthouse would be above the fog/clouds, whenever its in clouds the top of the core seems to just pass through them.


Sorry for the small picture, there were others that Sakor1 posted up in the old eureka thread, he worked on the core, but i cant find those, this is form the newspaper, that stole his pictures :P

So the penthouse could be above the fot alot fo the time.

From that angle it doesn't look as good IMO because I like the way the building steps up, you can't see it at all from this angle, and it doesn't look as tall..Although I would say i'm half and half with the radio mast, I reckon it will look crap when viewing the building from this or the opposite side, but ok from the front/back on sides.

Yeah, I agree that both the east and west views of this tower are not as impressive as from the north and south. From my balconey in Beacon Cove, I pretty much view Eureka square from the west, and it looks a little bit featureless and rectangular. You can't see the interesting angles and setbacks, and with Freshwater Place, Crown and some of the southbank towers clustered in front of it, you can't see the whole tower. That will probably change once the crown is completed.

i dunno about that, if u view E from Swan St, Richmond, you cannot see the set backs from there, but if u see that view u couldnt tell me it doesnt look impressive.

Yeah, i have much anger against that window and the glassier who placed it there...
I see it almost everyday! it ruins alot of good photos too =\

But i guess the best photos will be when the tower is finished
