billy stop your bitching, you sound like a woman

as for the $1 billion figure, that will be reached with the $175 million taken to extend Jeff's Shed and another $100 million to redevelop the existing convention centre. the highrise elements are a minimum $200 million. $370 million for the new hall and $43 million for infrastructure

all of the above are part of the precinct development according to the AFR.

a fairly basic concept design for the complex



i spotted what different design on tv tonight - similar to the Beijing Olympic Stadium, the main difference being the metal lattice-work covers the glass plenary hall rather than a stadium, a promising design and a real chance to create a genuine landmark, don't stuff it up!

it's been mentioned many a time in this thread that the above is just a concept image, tenders were called yesterday for design & construction, commencing early 2006

had a look around there today & going by the render grollo posted, the area not fenced for development is sizeable. seems you could put YE 1 to 4 or a freshwater place in there no problem



anyway something else for everyone to take photos of for the next few years, jeffs shed is such a well designed building

going by the size, when the rest of this tower crane arrives it'll be something to behold.
