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.
297.28m to be exact![to the top of the tower that is] Eureka's land is 2.72m higher than the Yarra River.

Well the yarra could be a few milimeters above sea level, well we know that from dites falls and further upstream it gets higher (the yarra that is)

i read an article on Eurekas construction that it will "settle" 300mm during and after construction is complete thus totalling exactly 297m. must be a pretty heavy piece of concrete.

A scraper in the fractal style.

It won't be long now that the gold glass cladding will start to appear for the top 10-storey levels and crown.

I have a funny feeling that the crown colour would be exact orange colour you'll see at the base.
