Love the curved spire. Is this endanger of 'aviation cancellation'? Damn airports, how hard is it to not hit a building?

Great news all-round for a great looking tower! Even if it turned out 1/2 as good as its renders, it'll still be a winner.

Back when I was in Brisbane, in 1992, Brisbane Central towered over the city. Now it looks quaint.

The display centre has shut down and it has 'construction site - no entry' signs there. All the cars in the carpark also have leaflets on all of their windows saying that the carpark will be no longer open! Maybe start before the end of the week??

There was a digger on site today demolishing the garden beds.

Article from Austcorp:

Construction Starts on Vision - Brisbane's tallest tower

Austcorp Group Limited has confirmed that a construction contract has been signed with Grocon to start work on the $900 million Vision project this month. The inital works include demolition of the Vision display suite and the carpark facility currently on site, followed by the excavation of the 7 level basement car park.

Austcorp Executive Chairman Trevor Chappell confirmed:

"We have sufficient pre-sales of apartments in place to confirm the strong acceptance of the project.

With strong interest expressed in the commercial, retail and car parking components of the building. Mr Chappell said "we are confident that this will lead to the sale of these components, in the near future".

The iconic 79-level building – Brisbane’s tallest tower – is being built by Australia’s leading privately owned construction group, Grocon who will move onto the Vision site this month. The project will be Grocon’s first in Brisbane.

To date Vision has secured 221 unconditional apartment sales of the tower’s total 401 apartments.
