While it is a good thing that the gap in the skyline at this spot will finally be closed, I'm not sure whether the copper-coloured cladding will fit in with the neighbouring buildings.

It turns out it is not actually copper-coloured cladding, but rather a timber slated facade with clear glazing. Kind of unique!!

Here is another render and the ground level floor plan

From George Street (looking north)

Now I have always wondered why those buildings are almost exactly the same height?

No idea to be honest :lol:

Mirvac, the developer, has lodged a DA for the demolition of the existing buildings. They must have secured an anchor tenant and have to work on a tight deadline!! Rumour has it that Ernst & Young have signed and will move 8 blocks north along George Street from their current location at World Square.

look a lot taller than 155m - looks ~170m. Maybe just the angle of image or sheer bulk but then again most buildings in Sydney look a lot taller than what they are. Do they sit on a relatively high RL?
