Not bad but really Sydney has enough of a dense undergrowth of 150m towers. It really needs to have a couple 300m towers jutting through to reset the skyline.
Thanks - I think my question was lost with the opening of this thread. It's always been a negative of the current design (well, one of the many :lol that the interior of the old building was so difficult to access, where it was used. I understand that some floors of the old building were pretty much mothballed for number of years.....as part of stage1, the atrium will be a requirement for the winning design. much like the height and bulk.
the 1939 waterboard is part of design , thus the atrium entrance from bathurst street. you will enter from bathurst thru the atrium into the 1930;s bldg. very cool
sort of igniting its use again. it will have 14,000sqm of brand new office space.
i wonder if the designers of the waterboard building kept that western side free of windows in the expectation that the future HSBC site would block out that side...waterboard is a such a great building. how could they want to demolish? lol
its right up againts boundary so that may have somehting to do with it. but also eastern side is blank. gee really innovative back then.loli wonder if the designers of the waterboard building kept that western side free of windows in the expectation that the future HSBC site would block out that side...
