Wow, the gold coast has really come a long way from those generic 80's holiday apartment blocks you can see in the background of those renders.

Whoa! I love that white cladding on the back of the towers. Very minimal and very GC.

I like these too, a little quirky, original and with a little of that dubai/gold coast glitz. Like to see them keep the glass that reflective as it breaks up the white sections, love those slits.
