This is an excellent tower. It looks different to other curved glass towers. It has something to it I love. Brisbane has a bright future with this tower.

Why is that a bad thing? I think a shark's fin must be one of the most beautiful designs in nature.

Very, very nice and yet here is Sydney we have to put up with buildings no greater than 235m ..... really make Sydney look pathetic IMO.

Well done Brissy!

I disagree! Q1's design looks more stiff and less relaxed...Vision looks like its relaxing, which is good cause I like it.

I'll agree that Q1 is more straight up-and-down, while Vision is curvy. Which I prefer is going to have to wait until I see the cladding....though hometown bias might rule anyway.

This is truly an amazing tower. Australia is very lucky to get it. And as someone said before, yes it does look a lot like a shark's fin, but that's a good thing.

We should just hope it doesn't get ruined like Q1 did IMO with the cladding.

Its getting double glazing.. ie 2 layers of glass... So even if its pretty pale (even IF) then it will get canceled out due to the 2 layers

The aviation authorities should NOT have the power to decide whether it is approved or not! That is just stupid!

well it is federal government airspace
even though it shouldnt be... Find me flight path maps from the BAC and lets see where one lines up with the CBD...

Thats not taking into account the distance the airport is from the city.

^but even if there aren't any flight paths directly over the city, there is always the possibility that future flight paths from the parrallel runway will.
