The E I think could be for EVO as one of the earlier pictures said EVO in the corner.

So it could be EVO 1 and EVO 2, or EVOLUTION 1 and EVOLUTION 2, or maybe ENVIRO 1 or something, who knows, it's got a very green theme.

Also an obviously homage to Q1 next door.

Maybe the thread title should be updated to read:

E1 - 340 101/f and E2 - 320m 70/f

(I believe E2 is more a commercial tower)

EVO 1 (E1) and EVO 2 (E2)

Marchese+Partners have added a page about EVO to their site.
http://www.marchesepartners.com/site/assets/pdf/m+p%20news%20-%20issue%2026%20|%20Nov%2007.html











Marchese + Partners design for 'evo' has been formally submitted as an Expression of Interest to the Gold Coast City Council. The $850 million proposal was prepared for Portberg Properties and includes two residential towers (101-storeys and 70-storeys) set amongst a 7000m2 public park. When constructed the e1 tower will eclipse Q1, currently the tallest building on the Gold Coast.

The development is made up of two towers that have an organic form - e1 and e2. e1 is a 101 storey residential tower, it penetrates the ground to allow a cascade of water to stream into the new transit centre and retail level below. At its peak a revolving restaurant is planned to give unobstructed views of the Gold Coast. e2 is a 70 storey tower twisting and curving out of the landscape. Both towers feature sky gardens that grow within the sculptured form of the buildings. The towers sprout from the substantial urban parkland proposed for the ground level of the site which will become the new 'green heart' of Surfers Paradise.

M+P's innovative approach to the design of the towers involves the fusing of the parkland and the towers facades, enveloping the facades in a landscaped skin while connecting the sculptural built form to the new urban park setting. The park at ground level is veiled in a tapestry of textured canopies and acts as a public green forecourt to the development.

A new park side low rise structure incorporating a cafe precinct, with galleries and exhibition spaces as well as boutique hotel edges the park. A resort style pool, health club, day spa, and tennis courts are located on the roof of this low rise structure. A landscaped roof area enjoys views over the park and provides pedestrian connection with the towers.

Below the parkland, a new retail centre is proposed, with large format convenience retail and specialty shops complementing the re-constructed Gold Coast Bus Transit centre on site.

With numerous tall residential buildings currently being planned and constructed worldwide, including 90, 100 and even 140 storey buildings it is clear that the future of high rise residential living is becoming a more recognized concept as space in our cities becomes more highly sought after. Evo belongs to this new generation of residential buildings.

Question: why are spires included in building heights in nations other than Australia, but not Australia ? For instance, in NYC, the NY Times Building has a veritable flagpole included in its height.

Hahaha... please don't open this debate again.
For all the international fourmes, i'll fill you in:

Eureka (Melbourne): 297m to roof, no spire
Q1 (Gold Coast): 275m to roof, 323m to roof

Which one is taller?

I expected this to be taller than the Empire State building. I guess not though! Really should go and read some more books...

Yes, of course. But that still doesn't answer my question.

That might be a question for the folks on the Times building. And I promise not to answer (else they may throw me out of that thread).

For those interested and who may not have seen my comments over there, my compromise position suggestion was that spires could be included IF they measured to a maximum 10% of the total building height. I wanted to add that they also need to be aesthetically part of the form, but I was already on the verge with those guys, so I executed a bit of forbearance.

The Times building is a 748' building with a massive antenna spire that puts it up to 1140'. They justify saying 1140' as they call it an 'architectural height'.

The antenna spire on the Freedom tower is actually even bigger - well over 400', but they justify including it in height as it is 'more than just an antenna'. It has some basic steel-work around it going up. I say that is a crock, but who am I?

These towers are just unreal.

I judge a buildings height to roof. Spire's dont count, cos thats all it is - a stick atop a building, they serve no humane function to live or work in.
Eureka will always be Australia's tallest, until Evo that is.
