They really do!


I thought it was someone playing around photoshopping Aurora.

At a glance you could be forgiven for mistaking it as Aurora in the above Pic, Another 30 metres with a set back would've made this something really special, but looks great nevertheless. An I'll drink to that

Haha yeh.. was referring only to that pic above my last comment, at no other time has Swanston Central even remotely looked like Aurora but it does in that pic. At a glance. I thought i'd made my comment clear enough, sorry for confusion

And the winner is... Scape! Brilliantly quirky and less awkward than the others. Aurora looks like a large plumbing fixture, while SC needed some more details to escape its Pyongyang modernist vibe (but that vibe is kinda dramatic I must say).

This tower in particular makes a massive statement and difference to the skyline. It's so damn bulky.. Especially from a distance, it looks massive in shear width alone..

SC was glowing today; have they cleaned the glass? No editing, by the way.

She has good sides .... and bad sides.

The Vic Market view is the poorest, looks a fat slab.

The above view is great. The up Swanston is also excellent, you can see the angles and edges.
