Actually those renders you've posted feature the old design - the new improved design looks a little something like this:

The building is currently at the excavation stage, here is the latest construction photo (taken by Taz001). The OzScrapers thread for Soleil can be found here

this is an extremely tall tower for aussie standards. Its only getting built because of the developer/builder- meriton. they never say die.
its equal tallest UC atm in Australia with SOUL on the gold coast. these will be tallest skyscraper built for many years. maybe 10.

Since you bumped the thread I may as well throw in a contruction update. Excavation has now finished, the crane is about it go in, and it shouldn't be too long before Soleil starts to rise!

Yeh its massive, goes down 10 storeys or 28.7m from the Adelaide Street side. I guess the impression of depth is even greater because its such a small site. Here is a photo from Taz001, taken on 19th July, when the hole had 'bottomed out'
