The bubble ride (previous thread) sounds amazing - and a very clever marketing device for the observation deck: bet it will cost cuctomers heaps though ...a price i am unlikely to pay, as i am one of those skyscraper freaks who suffers vertigo ... chickened out once on the Eiffel, and just afraid of those lifts that go up the outside of buildings !
Well if they cant get a restaurant going i highly doubt they will get a ride atop of Eureka going either, just sounds like one of those things that is too good to be true and will never get off the ground, i must say i will be very suprised if i am riding a thrill ride on top of Eureka after it is finished, call me sceptical if u want i am!
However, I am all for something different at the ob deck tho......or just something other than standing and looking out!
For easier comparison I've made an animated gif out of those two images:
As the rendered picture had been slightly resized, the image appears to jump slightly (I would need to fiddle with one or other of the images to fix it). If that rendering is right, we clearly have quite a way to go yet!
very nice indeed!!! I'm getting a digi cam soon, so I'll be able to go out and get some pics of this beauty!!!
Thanks guys for all the nice pics...Eureka is really going to make a huge impression on our skyline!
It's basically a silverish resi tower that is to be built next to FWP. It's original height was meant to be 218m, but then that was rejected and cut down to 160m. However, the developers are now appealing for the 218m to be built. Hopefully they succeed.
Yeah, that looks pretty accurate to me, well done! There's certainly a lot more construction to go on Big E, thats for sure!
Oh, and larven, cut the modesty mate! You're a champ with photoshop, your renders border on photorealism!
the real credit should go to larven for the render - it took me all of a couple of minutes to fiddle with the before and after shots in GraphicConverter (that's an excellent utility you'll find available for Mac) to make an animated gif out of it. Photoshop requires a little more talent than that
wow, that's two of the best ever tayser (Thursday)...
