Bit of a worry.

is serious business in this forum

But there's also a (hard fought) reason CUL's no longer an Ozscraper's mod.

Unfortunately it is the way of the modern world, and those who criticise, denigrate and abuse from the safety of the keyboard are usually those who have nothing positive or constructive to offer.

Greetings from Melbourne. Can I please take this opportunity to wish all NSW contributors the very best in the face of what looks like a horrendous fire day tomorrow. While we can all get argy bargy over skyscrapers, in the scheme of things it is simply a personal or business interest for us. I pray that you and your loved ones will stay safe and that we can continue to have fun on skyscrapercity for many years to come.

I'm absolutely certain that I speak on behalf of all Melbourne based contributors and those elsewhere.

AFR reporting Stockland will lodge a Stage 1 DA in 2020 to demolish its landholdings at 133 Castlereagh / Stockland Piccadilly and replace them with a new A Grade office tower & podium retail.

https://www.afr.com/property/commerc...0191113-p53a51

CUL - this area comes under sun access plane restrictions for Hyde Park West. Considering ANZ Bank Tower (191m) is to the immediate south, and the planned Tattersalls Tower (168m) is to the immediate north, what is the likely permissible height for a tower on this site?

Guys, amazing that Mark Steinert and the team at Stockland are looking to demolish this. It just shows the ongoing demand for office space and the impetus gathering through the relaxation of plot ratios etc in the Sydney CBD. I've known Mark for more than 30 years and he certainly knows what he's doing. Looking forward to seeing a high quality outcome here.

We should see a better looking building than the current ignominious pile - a late entry in the ‘high rise leagues’ club/shopping centre’ school of architecture,* pioneered by (surprise, surprise) shopping centre developers like Westfield and Stockland.

*Westfield Towers on William Street is a prime example.

Why not both?: AMP Bondi Junction Plaza Tower I (1975)


(Marginally improved by raw concrete being painted white in 2003)

The Westfield Towers on William Street is undoubtedly the best of the bunch, and just a beautiful building in general. Those clean lines and nested curves

This is the best kind of exterior concrete!

Yes, with the Cronulla-Sutherland Leagues’ Club of a few years later employing similar architectural mouldings.

Meanwhile over at Carlton, St George Leagues’ Club for many years resembled a Keith Lord showroom. I think there was one of the latter just down the Highway towards Blakehurst.

A lost decade and a lame decade - but is Sydney finally making a comeback?

Michael Koziol
November 17, 2019 — 12.00am

Gabriel Metcalf, the Committee for Sydney's recent recruit from San Francisco, spent much of his first year in the job listening to people complain about their own city.

"Everybody just stop whinging!" he joked to stakeholders at a drinks function following the think tank's annual general meeting last month.

One of the recurring grievances? "So many people told me about how after the [2000] Olympics, Sydney took a break from adding to infrastructure, from building, from moving forward - this so-called lost decade. So many people said that."
Continued in link

A nice piece of analysis in the SMH that I largely agree with. I think the infrastructure projects finishing up in the last couple years has been the beginning of that 'psychological reboot' that Sydney needs.
