^why? its one of the great apartment towers of the world. (its one of my favs)
not only great location on Australias Gold Coast but its top floor is open to public, something the dubai towers wont have.

Yes, and the core is hidden here. But there are two more floors visable, compared to April 29th.

Btw. the sites more to the right are Marina Pinnacle, Sulafa Tower, Mag 218 and 23 Marina... 6 rising towers +250m visable at once!
