Apologies for being O/T here (no comment on the potential stick extension of Q1 as I find the Q1 and Eureka "battle" concept ludicrous) but does anyone have any idea of the diameters of some of Melbourne's various sticks? *coughs in cul's direction*

How thick are the prongs on 101C and the white thing on Telstra, for example?

Cheers,

Adam
im fairly certain those spires would be both under 1m dia.

how far is Mt Dandenong lookout from those TV towers? it looks really high. Ive got heights of the elevations of base of towers. ranging from 550m-620m. pretty high.

umm from memory it's right next to one or two of them, like within a k, the main road from the lookout goes past a base station (I havent been up there in 5+ years mind)

I'm fairly sure the lookout's between the two towers just visible here (damn grey days - shite for taking photos and this is after I supercharged the contrast on the image :lol: )

thanks guys. ive never seen a pic of Dandenongs with towers. these are higher then Canberras Black Mountain which is 617m. The tallest tower (ch9) is 189m and sits at 555m, thus top is 744m above sea level.The shortest tower is the original ch2 tower built for 56 Olympics and is 620m above sea.

Finally some new great pics from Hacksaw excellent work. I checked Eureka out when coming back from the cricket it hasnt grown much in over 1week? And the worst thing is no crane rise yet.

Is this height before or after the antennae addition for digital television in 2000:

They were cleaning some of the windows on this day, you can actually see the ropes hanging down in Hacksaw's pic, but you can see the result in this pic on the right hand side below the vent (West Wing)
The building will look so much better when the whole thing is clean, will be a while till we see that though I imagine

sorry to lump this in here but it shows you how the spire/mast situation is going
Q1 had original DA at 298m, then 322.5m and maybe 351m?
i think 298m was too low. 322m seems fine. 351m will be out of proportion



grollo- im sure it was 180m, now 189m.i might check

Every time I see that render of Eureka by Cul, I get more used to the idea. I think the Eureka spire/Ob deck looks more structural and functional than ornamental.

The Eureka mast is similar to the airship mooring mast on the Empire State Building which was also NOT on the original design of the building which had a flat roof.

airship mooring mast hey, well u learn something new every day dont ya! i still dont see how a thin spire like Q1's can count as official height and the mast on E's doesnt......i'm perplexed by it all. The mast doesnt really look to suit E very much but i am still all for it :)
