Some amazing pics there.

I'm not sure if I like it from this angle, but from all other angles it looks awesome. A great pinnacle for the skyline.

Nice cladding too - very shiny, and the colour scheme works well with those lovely shades of blue contrasting with the beige.

297.3m to be exact :p but 300m from sea level. (river right next to it)

the core topped out a few months ago, and the floor plates have slowly but steadley been catching up.

I too cannot wait to see how they complete the crown, but sadly it will not be ready (the observation deck) by the 2006 Commonwealth games =(
lets hope they can construct it faster.

The core is actually 295m high I think, the roof has two 'ridges' that rise higher than the core.

thats right, i forgot oops.

Oh well, it's still topped out and close to 300m :p i'm sure all the brochures will say 300 instead of 297.3, just a rounded number and sounds more impressive.

Still coming along nicely, albeit slow progress over the last few months. Hopefully we'll begin to see some of gold crown shortly!

good update! The first pic has amazing vertical power in it! The power we all love I guess!

everything in that pic is vertical except the lowrise in the front, which makes all the other things even more vertical.
