KJBrissy on the first pic Curtain extended the spire in PS, it's not that long, the 7th pic is also of the old design.

Also word is Vision is now around 265m to roof, 290m to spire.

The crooked spire is to follow the shape of the building, a straight spire IMO would look demented.

good to see Queensland finally getting the 'scrapers it deserves. Hope it's the start of a long rivalry between Brisbane, Gold Coast and Melbourne to have the tallest!

Looks pretty good, but I don't like the spire. It is not needed on this building. The way it is shapped it is almost like a sharks fin.

Vision looks like overweight Q1. its a great skyscraper. will be one hell of a project. unusual how observation decks will be down at 200m/61st floor, but should still give great perspective of city.
