The suncorp concept looks like an exploding mandarin.

I like the Suncorp signage coz it puts a full panel right across the top of the 'cage' so it kind of maximises the 193m height of the tower.
You're right on the concrete thing - I would be so stoked to see MLC and Suncorp/AAP tower bloody well cleaned !!!!!

give me suncorp anytime over aapt! its an imposing image of corporation.... as opposed to aapt, which just seems tacky to me, particularly with those stupid ads and catch phrases they used to run - not fit to sit up in the sky along with AMP, AXA, EY, Citigroup, Westpac, CBA, and others.....

OUCH!



That's WAY too much.

The lattice work of the top is lost!

Couldn't they integrate it better?

Cheers,

Adam

^ i agree, the whole idea of the cage is being part of its unique intricate design. loose the white sections and just have the signage & logo. simple.

It's no different from what's there now... You can even see where the used the clone tool to remove the top of the AAPT circle.

They really need to clean that concrete!

There are 16 signs in total (mostly on the podium), more pics in the DA.

The background will be the green/aqua color. The logo is always on the green background - never on any other color.

Oh, really? I didn't make those images myself - they're from the development application. If you take the time to read it, you'll see that what they're proposing is exactly what is shown in the images above. The 4th page of this document might be particularly useful to you.

That same document contains pictures of all 16 proposed signs and I'm afraid not a single one of them has green as the background colour.

Judging by the older documents, I think that was the intention, but it got knocked back.

This is the logo & lettering Rabobank is in the midst of using on DP3:



From the last pic post of it by CULWULLA, it just looks panelled and not for illumination. Unusual for black lettering (and a black on white figure) to be illuminated. If it's not going to be lit from within, maybe it'll be floodlit.

A few bits of news on World Square:

Firstly, Austereo @ 50 Goulburn is hoping for the DA for its news ticker to be approved relatively soon. Management informed me that instead of wrapping around onto George Street, it will run along the Goulburn St side of the facade, and swing directly around into Austereo's lobby. Sounds cool.

Also World Sq's Marketing Department is going to try to come up with the finances for a plasma screen to replace the billboard within the open plaza. They would like to do this by also approaching some of the W.S. retailers to pitch in to advertise on it. No promises as it may or may not be a successful marketing venture.

Went through W.S.'s plaza last night and nothing is on the billboard including the art pieces they project onto it in the evenings.

Speaking of screens, the one on George Street's Metro Building opposite G.U.'s cinemas and Meriton Tower hasn't been operational for yonks. What a waste. Even the Scientologists don't advertise L. Ron Hubbards books on Dianetics and Scientology on it anymore as they had been doing.

Back to World Square's Plaza...There is now a relatively large illuminated sign running vertically down the blank wall of The Avillion Hotel/Hordern Towers facing the plaza reading "AVILLION HOTEL SYDNEY". It's postioned just above Suzann Victor's "Skin To Skin" metallic installation & between the 1st and 2nd overhead lamps in this pic taken by CULWULLA, posted June last year:
