^ yeah i agree!
but 2006, melb will only have 1 UC over 150m.(Verve).
Queensland from 2006 will have tallest in the country UC.
Its hard to believe that Brisbane in 2006 will have the tallest bldg uC (246m Vision).
GC will still have 219m Circle & 240m soul UC. Q1 will be already getting its 1000 beds soiled.
As for Sydney, John Boyd will be our tallest Uc at 188m, and thats not even with a spire,lol.

If they were all built in the same city, we could have a city like Hong Kong in Australia in a couple of years!!
Imagine if they were all built on that new land out at the Port of Brisbane, jutting out into the bay...

^ i think i worked out once that Melbourne has had 40 skyscrapers built since 2000, double that of Sydney.(Sydney had its boom late 90;s.
so the boom has been for past few years and winding down 2005.

that's sad for melbourne, hopefully some new projects start to unfold in 2006, that would be cool..if it only had demand liek the gc, it would be a never ending construction site :)

Isn't that called dubaism? ;)

Just be happy with what Melb has to offer now, it will be a few good years until we see such a drastic change in the skyline again.

Perhaps the start of Prima will kickstart the next cycle! Whose up for a 350m+ monster? Along with a few extra 250m+ towers to even up the skyline!

At least Melbourne will go through a short period where it will seem like the work has been "finished". I mean in Brisbane and GC there is no end to the construction, there is no time when we can say "its finished - isn't it beautifull" because its never finished. Its good but frustrating at the same time. Its like living in a house that is constantly under renovation, construction can be great but sometimes I imagine all the projects are complete and what it would look like - which is never going to happen.

Yes I know - I'm rambling...

Apart from the fact yes, you were rambling lol.

I agree with u on 1 thing. I like to look forward to what the skyline will look like when its finished. But then im just like "but what about Xproject which is starting after.."
