A new tower proposed for Surfers Paradise on the Gold Coast in Australia!

It's a residential/hotel tower 208m to roof, 243m to spire. Designed by the Buchan Architects who designed Vision tower in Brisbane.

Tower is all glass, factoid of the day: 65 percent more water and energy efficient than Q1.

The name is temp, the official name isn't out yet btw.

the 61m/200ft spire is a feature and was added to mimic the 100m higher spire of nearby Q1! sort of a ying yang, lets soar above the beaches and give the coast an impressive skyline. lol

I suspect it might have something to do with the constant harsh sunlight.
What do you mean constant harsh sunlight? We get as much sunlight and heat as any other country.

I guess it's just a design that suits the GC. And I love this building, I hope GC builds more buildings in the near future.
