^Those are a pair of kick ass towers which will do wonders for the GC skyline when they join Q1.

Latest pics by fireflymairi, Q1 in the background, which is designed by the same architect as the Circle.

Below an impression created by Locke of how tall the 2 towers of Circle on Cavill will reach their heights...
(Q1 Tower to the right and the approved 72-level 240m/786ft Soul Tower in the background, just to the left):

Great render there, those new towers are sexy and heaps better than the disappointing Q1 and its ridiculously oversized spire.

I took these this morning, looks fantastic so far. The glass is ultra relective, almost black in colour from some angles I'd say.

They sure are taking off...zooooooooooom! Wonder if the pale blue paint is an undercoat.

Well the blue paint is actually white, it probably just looks blue cos I took these real early in the morning and the sun was on the other side of the buildings, so everything had a blue-ish tinge to it.

My god, how awesome!

At least they aint skimping on the reflective glass. How hot is that glass? These two will make Q1 look like a highrise slum IMO.

Very nice projects- Q1 seemed to progress very quickly, actually from the look of things, they are progressing rapidly!

Without sounding too ignorant, can you tell me what part of the gold coast this is- i am correct in assuming that this is somewhere between sydney and melbourne..?

nice looking area as well..i am envious...!!

Ah no. The Gold Coast is a city located in Queensland, and is right on the border shared with New South Wales. This places it just below Brisbane... or between Sydney and Brisbane if you prefer it described that way, although it is nearly a thousand klicks from Sydney. Red dot below.

45 Minute drive south of Brisbane CBD in Queensland.

Here is a map of the Gold Coast
Most of the skyscrapers are around Surfers Paradise.
