Great pics Cul. Love the pic of Chatswood from a distance. Its a pity Parramatta isn't on a hill though otherwise its skyline would be more prominant.

Somthing under construction on the left side... what's that?
Watpac are building a six storey tower named 8Australia (8 Australia Avenue) - which I admit was barely above ground in April. It's gone up quick

Website - http://www.8australia.com/



It contains 7000sq/m of space.

Thanks Cul for the photos as well. Were those shots from the observation deck at the top or from your room? Your lucky that as a guest of the hotel you get to access the deck for free. :)

While the density of Rhodes impresses me, it does have a bland appearance - too much white and lacks some landmark towers. :(

Brilliant pics cul. The novotel sticks out like dogs balls from some angles.

Just and off-the-cuff question, why isn't building lighting high on the agenda over in Sydney? At night, many of the city's most noticeable highrises contain no feature lighting. DBP and 1 O'Connel have decent lighting, however.

There is more feature lighting in the CBD then what is actually switched on. But some of it has been turned off indefinitely. This has been more so since the rise of Earth Hour, which started by the WWF and the Sydney Morning Herald.

For example the Governor Philip Tower now never has its crown switched on ...

Nice stuff Cul - I like these sort of views. It shows how horribly flat Western Sydney is too, and how concentrated the high rise is - look at all the low density in between.

:yes:
