Eureka looks a little odd from some angles - but it's bolder and more colourful, and is probably the more 'memorable' design of the two.

Q1 looks more 'normal' overall, and ever-so-slightly bland, but it has a better crown/pinnacle and upper section.

Difficult choice.

My opinion is that Q1 is more appealing but looks abit more tacky.

Q1 will age much better. Eureka is interesting, but like fox said, kind of odd at some angles.

Q1 is the best to me, it's maybe one of my top 5 skyscrapers in the world, it's got more design, it's like an almost futurist sculpture designed to be for a lot of time the center of the skyline of a pretty city with a great quality of life.
However, Eureka looks much taller, but it's not like a sculpture, it looks like an ordinary very modern office tower designed to be somewhere in the middle of the biggest and most crowded city of the universe that needs dozens of towers of this height and taller, it reminds me the city of Matrix Reloaded, wich I love.

Eureka isn't even finished yet.

Q1 is very sleek, and the facade is pretty nice too.

Eureka is also really nice and does a lot for Melbourne's skyline.

Tough one, but I would go with Q1.

They are both very nice scrapers, but Eureka with it's distinctive cladding, wins it for me. It stands out more, sometimes that can be a negative aspect, but not in this case. Both are great towers though

They're both beautiful towers, but Eureka is just my favourite. I love the unusual shape, and the gold crown is magnificent :P

I like Q1 one hundred times better because Q1 is very classy and magestic. I don't like the color on Eureka, Dark blue and Gold doesn't compliment each other.

I do like the color in Eureka, but I also like the Q1. Without a poll I dont have to decide. On my last trip to Australia, I really did the the people in Queensland, though, and would like to thank them for their hospitality.
