2 never builts for World Tower...from The Daily Terror-graph, 8/3/2000.

Peddle Thorp & Walker...and Seidler's; It looks like a 235m Cove:

I remember seeing those two designs on TV years ago when they announced the winner of the design competition for World Tower. Excellent designs.

What was this building in the pic below, it's a really good looking supertall!

Boy, Sydney has really let some good stuff slide.

Whoever made these decisions, as the Old Knight in Indiana Jones and the Last Crusade would have said... 'choose poorly'.

The was Seilder's proposed CBD1 that was just over 400m tall, which was knocked back due to apparently taking away focus from The Harbour Bridge. In its place another Seilder & Associate's scraper was built, the 158m Cove.

Speaking of toilet lids, the 170m (to spire) Vero Centre in Auckland N.Z. has one. Curently the tallest office building in Auckland.

Like the way a pretty display girl takes the focus off a Bugatti Veyron at a motorshow I suppose.

Somehow they don't get rid of the girls though aye.

Yeah, I love the cross-bracing. Looked great.

Before when I said it was 400m+ I was thinking of this version, pictured below, which Emporis states it was to be 445m. Emporis also states the architects were Stephenson & Turner Architects & not Seidler & Associates - this has to be a boo-boo, no?

More info on the project @ CBD1

out of all the never builts for Sydney, the one that im upset most about is the 244m Angel Place. Main reason is that it was approved. none of these others have.

I don't see legitimacy in the CASA regulations. Airports such as Las Vegas have the taller than sydney tower, Stratosphere down the road and two 40+ floor Mandalay Bay buildings right next door. Surely CASA enforces regulations that are too stringent. There are no flight paths directly over the CBD and there exists many airports in the world that have a far more precarious landing than in Sydney. I can't see any problems that could be caused by a few 400-500 metre buildings.
Well, in the case of LV, the runway don't exactly point directly at the towers on the Strip. Sydney's virtually does, hence the restrictions. (there is a shortish runway that's parallel to the strip, but it'd only be used by small aircraft and wouldn't present as many problems).

I do agree that Sydney Airport should be moved. I'd personally just use an HSR link (could later be extended down to Canberra, and then on to Melbourne eventually). It would be cheaper and could be linked into the existing network near Central (probably the ideal terminating station).

Interesting proposal for St Andrews. When did they come up with that proposal?

I'd go with this one instead of the 445m proposal. It looks similar to the Qantas Centre but all glass and the bracing

Suspect the bell tower design for St Andrew's is much older - 1920s? In the late 1960s there was a plan for a 41 storey tower, architect Hely Bell & Horne? (or similar name), behind St Andrew's but after much toing and froing, we ended up with the current building with St Andrew's school on top by the same architects.
Wish they would build the belfry/campanile as St Andrew's needs something extra as it doesn't quite 'work' somehow.

yes st andrews is such a little cathedral compared to the massive st marys on College st. St Marys is actually twice the length and twice as high.
Eblacket should of designed in larger, Australia has cathedrals this size in country towns.

Will St Mary's ever have a large spire added?

I walked past the other day and heard two Irish girls talking, one was saying to the other that the two spire there now (at the end nearer to the swimming pool) were only added in 2002.

Are there plans to add a main spire?
