Estimates conclude that the top of the corebox has breached the 300m mark - giving Australia its first supertall.

The Q1 Tower in Gold Coast has a structural height of 322.5 m, though without its spire it would be 275 m.

Myeah, spires. Floors above 300m matter more.

This wonderful city is criminally underrated and overlooked.

NYC should've received it's architectural uniqueness with open arms at least half a decade ago.

I've never seen that shot of the Melbourne skyline from the water. Amazing! I think i count 20 cranes.

Too much glass. City looks dystopian. Not a fan of it but good for the locals I suppose.

This thing looks hideous, butt ugly. I don't think even Las Vegas would build something so tacky.

Well, design and materials surely don't match those of a couple of similar things in Manhattan (yet), but the purpose of the building still feels amazing to me. It is residential!
These projects already implemented will certainly allow them to go higher and higher-end, just like they've been doing in NYC. I wish we did the same here in Paris.
Quote:
Mr Leoncelli said prospective buyers would need at least $2.5 million for one of the remaining properties, all luxury three-bedroom apartments, in the exclusive "Cloud Residences" above the 71st floor.

The cheaper apartments on the lower storeys, which sold for as little as $450,000, were snapped up within a few months of the official launch in February.
I couldn't afford it, but it doesn't even sound so overpriced given the product and amenities in there, does it? That's probably a very good thing. This is still a healthy real estate market, even though prices won't fail to skyrocket in the end. That's always the way it goes.

Build the very same in Hong Kong, NYC or London, they would sell apartments 30 times that much, because these markets are derailed.
Ours here is pretty much as insane due to NIMBYism to crush/avoid any serious competition locally, to artificially keep prices very high.

I can't tell how much I find it nasty and stupid when I see what they've been doing over there.
Good job in that matter, Australia.

This building blends very nicely with other existing towers nearby. That is a very good thing. It has the same materials. The design is very non traditional, however, it not a boring box like many cities get. I like the boldness of its design. Pushing the edges, pun intended, but edgy in a good way.

Hopefully the very distracting and ugly "MULTIPLEX" signage is only temporary.

^ it's just advertising for the builder whilst it's under construction, it'll be gone upon total completion (mid 2020).
