Am I the only one who dislikes the building?

IMO it looks nice when viewed from the side, but it is way too wide when viewed from the Swan River.

Yeah it is wide from that angle, but you will get used to it, I did haha.

And eventually with higher and taller building density I believe it will fit in perfectly.

I don't like it much either, too wide. They should have made them twin towers instead connected by a skybridge.

I love it! The glass and the exoskeleton are awesome. One of the best buildings in the city.

I can understand why some don't like it so much. On the other hand, the glass is beautiful and it does add some much needed bulk to Perth's skyline, I reckon

Between that new big black brick and the convention centre it's degraded Perth's skyline which used to be amongst the most beautiful in the world, IMHO. The new 'Perth Waterfront' will be the final nail in the coffin of our our clean lines of river and parkland punctuated by individual spires, not massed skyscrapers like Sydney.

This one fits in well with Perth's Skyline, hopefully Adelaide will get a tower like this soon
