It's entirely student housing by the looks of it. The website also promotes premium rooms with 'the best views in Sydney'.

Cladding!



It's hard to see from my crappy phone picture, but the coloured bits are actually coloured glass (and nowhere near as colourful as in the render).

What kind of material is the black part?
Looks kinda reflective?

I'm not sure. It isn't concrete or glass, but it's too high up for me to tell what is actually is.

Probably some sort of pre-fab fibre-cement composite panel? Maybe with an aluminium powder-coated cladding? Looks like it was probably already in its finished state when it arrived on site, just needed installation.

This will look very similar to one of the twins that will sit perpendicular across the lane.

Thread title still needs changing.

Think I'm going to have to see this one 'in the flesh' before I make up my mind about it.

didn't realise that the coloured bits opened out, kind of a cool effect though because the look like fins in stead of windows.......

Is this topped out??

This building reminds me of the really ugly tower at Carlton Crest in Brisbane, except with a much better facade. Seems to be a pretty impressive pace for construction too - gone from nothing to a 15st building which is two thirds clad in less then six months!!
