BatesSmart are very busy people lately. I like their 'cool' geometric Modernism.

It's one of the sites I have walked past and wondered why no developer has bothered building something there. There is a nice take away food shop there at present.

Interesting location which definately needs a change.

Its a pity that the string of Victorian era commercial buildings (apart from the last couple) were so mutilated that they now need to be pulled down. The other side of Erskine Street looks nice with the restored period facades.

i agree that the last few are still good examples and i'm surprised that they are allowed to go considering that there's not many of them left in the cbd itself - moreso in the inner burbs.

I will pose the question that doesn't get asked much around here: Could it not have gone a bit higher?

nope. theres 80m height limit along western side of kent. st
years ago when kens was lodged it was 3x 80m towers. looked terrible, so they decided to allow taller bldg. up to 150m. but it had a hige block so it could be done.

I think that 80m limit will soon become redundant and irrelevant. It's goal has been to create the step down feel from the city core to darling harbour. It has actually been quite effective but it's somewhat out the window now with the westpac building and soon the talls at barangaroo. I think they should keep the gorgeous step down effect south of westpac/barangaroo but they also now need to step down from westpac southwards. I think this tower should have been around 100m to help with that effect. Silly rigidty in council.
