Let's hope that falling balconies aren't part of the final project

I am not sure I like the idea of another AMP tower near Circular Quay in Sydney. I like the way the Gateway building opens out beside the old Customs House and original 60's AMP building to give a view into the heart of Sydneys downtown area. A wall of skyscrapers along Circular Quay would not display the great buildings within a few blocks to the south. I am not a Sydney expert...just my observations from Melbourne.

The cost would be chicken feed given it's multi billion dollar profits, even when banks left, right and centre collapse.

jarkti-its pretty close.
the "roof" of citgroup isnt the main roof just above citigroup sign, its at top , where spire starts.
the main roof where sign is =188m, so boyd render isnt far off. maybe little to high. but close.

Wow. That's heaps nice. I don't understand something though; doesn't the city council have strict height limits concerning shadowing onto Hyde Park? This building appears quite close to, and rather tall - that it would cast a shadow?

about time. The current buildings are a blight on Pitt st. You can even see an old 'Brashes' logo on one of them.

I don't know... it could look better IMO. I hope there is more glass in the front.

What is going on with Sydney all of a sudden? The place will be off the scale within 6 months at this rate.

the whole blocks along that area have 120m height limit but the developer realised when he bought the site, that the planned tower could "hide" its shadow in the 40storey hyde park square shadow, just to its south.
hyde park square (former T&G/pacific power) was built in 1977 and exceeds the height limit by double. council couldnt do anything about it as it was a state gov project. they ignored rules/regualtions.
so it went to 170m to roof and they added 18m of architectural feature above.

Sydney's height limits are utterly stupid.

And Freehills will take the space IMO. They're really, really cashed up and also seriously need space.

Ah thanks Cul, that explains heaps; I had wondered why it was three-sided also. I'm surprised the city council still approved this, on the basis that it could hide in the shadow of another building - but judging by its age; couldn't it have warranted demolition potential in future, thus allowing them to take back the "desired" character and protection they sought for Hyde Park?
