D_Y2k.2^. It hasn't been confirmed as yet if the mast is going ahead....and yeah, it's a great shot of Q1.

I notice the Eureka flag on the core is about to disappear too due to the floor plates.

Or...



Bear in mind 21st Century Tower has a whopping great spire on top, whereas Eureka has apartments right up to 280 metres. I believe apartments up to level 55 (i.e. the lower setback) are just about to be occupied in the next three months, at which point Eureka can (briefly) take the crown from Dubai... I believe there's a 340 metre high all-residential use one u/c which is due 2007 or so.

I'm amused people are writing this building off (and apologising) when:
a) it's clear few of the renders have captured the unusual geometries of the building's crown - it really has to be appreciated from many angles!
b) only the core has topped out, and we are just now beginning to see the floorplates give definition to the tapering form of the tower from level 55 upwards.
c) as has been pointed out by Grollo, even if the mast goes ahead - and it may not! - even then, the design we have seen thus far is not necessarily set in stone.

Trump Chicago is a mixed use building, not just residential.

John Hancock Center in Chicago will still have apartments higher than Eureka but that is mixed use as well.

haha no need to be sorry, thats life, i think the big thing here is it will be the tallest in the southern hemisphere for some time. Spoiled by those awful overhead cables? its called an efficient public transport system, something that most cities around the world struggle with.

No need to be sorry, there are already a few proposals in Dubai that are taller also, and they are 100% residential too.

I like it, but I tend to agree with those who say it's nothing special. It's certainly tall, and an impressive addition to Melbourne's skyline, but I don't see anything amazing or revolutionary about it. Some Melburnian forumers seem to feel it's compulsory to be "blown away" by Eureka.

P.S. I hope they don't add a spire. It really doesn't need one. I think a cheap attempt to add height would compromise the building's solid, confident design a little.

Up until recently I would agree with you, but the interesting part is only just starting to come to light . The pinnacle of this building will be its crowning glory, intersecting angles and a gleaming golden summit. Yum.
