Nah, the bottom is painted facade, the crown will be gold-infused glass... I can tell you they will not be the same colour .

Yeah, that was a given though, as the tower had residents moving into the lower completed levels months ago! This is just the lobby for resident access though, there will be a seperate entrance for the observation deck I believe.

by god, I travelled through Melbourne in July 2002 and saw the ground work starting to take shape - now this - whooo, is looking good. Together with Freshwater Place i think you have two superb towers on the south bank of the Yarra. Highrise living, oh yes please team!

I wish they would finally do a re-make of that game..

I made a render of Eureka and Photoshopped it. My Photoshop skills aren't that great so I was sloppy but hope you like it. (Photo taken by Joed)

The design of the outer cladding is very sexy... I'm glad it looks soooooo much better than in the initial renders

it'll prbably be the tallest in Australia and Melbourne for a decade or two, although there have ben some crazy 400m-600m proposals for Melbourne.

Some 'insider' shots of the gold glass in a warehouse somewhere in Melbourne.

Thanks to Taipei74.

don't forget its dark in the warehouse, and well close. It seems it will be good looking out, not to opaic, and from the outside the glass will reflect the morning and afternoon sun subperbly!
