Here are the designs for Crown Sydney. Renzo Piano decided to pull out as he was not happy with his design.

The Telegraph states that the height is ''about 235m'' however I think that is the KPF proposal - Adrian Smith + Gordon Gill and Wilkinson Eyre both look CONSIDERABLY TALLER than C3 (red tower) which is 217m to top of architectural feature.

James Packer speaks to the Nine Network (Australia) on the reasons for the supporting the selected design for Crown Sydney:



7.30 NSW (Australian Broadcasting Commission) recently aired a report on the casino battle between Crown and Echo Entertainment (owners of the Star Casino). Echo want to maintain a monopoly over gaming in Sydney.

It's a great development for Central Sydney at the moment. A new commercial centre, casino resort, harbourside parklands and apartments.
