I still love the tower, but the chunky Office section at the base I believe lets it down a little.

This tower's not going anywhere for a while. The developers had the idea that the Federal government could bail them out with money from that part of the economic stimulus package reserved for certain classes of property. Wishful thinking, but it won't happen. The government won't be propping up speculative residential (or commercial) developments. If they had enough pre-sales to make the project financially viable then a bank might lend them the money. Without confirmed pre-sales, nothing will happen.

You can find up to date information here in the Australian forum though it doesn't sound to good.

Breaking News:

I have been told from a reliable source that Austcorp are close to finalising a deal to offload the site. They have absolutely no intention to build Vision.

Cool building. It's boring though. Very typical of today's architecture. Tall however, which will improve the skyline.
