9.5/10 !

I agree the base isn't all that good, but the tower itself is outstanding. I was a serious doubter before it was completed, but on completion, it has taken my breath away. Far better than renders, and - at least from a distance - certainly one of the best towers in recent times built anywhere in the world.

It will be interesting to see if the proposed mast, if constructed, has any impact on it's overall rating in this polling thread.

Shouldn't this thread be a sticky considering that it is a new entrey to the top 100?

Anyway, 10/10 for me, it's an awe inspiring design, one of the modern classics IMO.

Btw, current top 100 rankings.

1 #011 - Bank of China Tower, Hong Kong 9.35 1138
2 #035 - Eureka Tower, Melbourne 9.35 127

Early days yet but Eureka is certainly up there with the best.

Yea, nearly 90% have voted this building 8.5 or higher and so they should - it's a great building. Hooo haaa.

I love this building...it's height is awesome (some angles it looks breathtakingly tall) but I'm a bit disappointed it doesn't have any lighting system at night and the base is a bit tacky...IMO...overall though it rocks.

There's no lights at night because the upper floors are still an empty shell.

its a residential bldg, it cant be lit at night. many angry residents wouldnt like that.maybe some roof lighting of an architectural feature like a spire or fin. but cant blast lighting onto units glass. its totally dif situation compared to an office tower which is basically empty after 5pm.
see what i mean with Q1s lighting arc feature or spire>
rest of tower isnt lit.only unoccupied top.
http://www.cmrdesign.net/towers/nigh...ine-030206.jpg
also a better example>
former worlds tallest resi- the 262m/73st Trump world tower at far left with ESB & Chrysler lit up inbackgrd (because there office towers).
