I'm searching for a building which facade was designed like an famous photograph. I couldn't say if it's the "Regent Place & Meriton Tower" or not.
But i think it wasn't that high! The buildings i mean is located in the neighbourhood of Westpac Place!

I see. You meant the 15 level "Dupain" which is not going ahead now due to the East Darling Harbour development
(the grey concept towers @ the end of the first post). Dupain would be hidden by the towers and just be a waste.
It was designed before they were announced.

Based on a photograph known as "Bondi" by Max Dupain:



The towers of East Darling Harbour will start where the low white-roofed shed is:



Instead we're getting a 45m low-riser for The Macquarie Bank with a large footprint, along with a new 50m American Express Building,
both under construction: King Street Wharf Development

American Express Tower:

lol :lol:
sydney and australia overall oozes mediocrity,i mean look at those towers in the CBD they are just so bland.dont get me wrong i love this city just as much as my place of birth and always i've always defended it with vigour,but it always dissapoints me with it's tall-poppy syndrome.the entire city council with clover moore should be abolished and also frank sartor :gunz: .these guys are a disgrace to city planning.they should start appointing young red blooded people with a more forward looking attitude towards future development.
if this continues then god knows what will happen to this beautiful city :(

I think that's truer for the past & a lot of architects have understood this since, therefore have made an effort to come up with "better" (for want of a better word) designs over the last few years. 10 years ago, Sydney was pretty much a city of "flat-tops".

Here are some smaller projects earmarked for the Sydney CBD 50m+< ...

Gloucester Street Apartments - 84m (Proposed)




11-15 Alberta Street Apartments - 63m (Approved)






83 Goulburn Street - 55m (Proposed)




257 Clarence Street - 53m (Approved)




Taragon Central - 53m (u/c)





...and for another render: Taragon Central


185 Macquarie Street - 52m (u/c)






485 Wattle Street - 52m (u/c)






503 Kent Street - 51m (u/c)




Park Central - 50m (Approved)

nice... no super-tall, but at least these will add substance and density to the city...

Some great designs. I like 33 Bligh Street; holes in a building usually are meaningless but this design gives that idea a good purpose (sunlight at streetlevel I assume).
