I love this view! And the space between the buildings and behind the GPO is perfect for a 150m+ tower! Hello BHP Billiton :wink:

Loving the darker colour glass on the upper levels matching the lower level glass facing Fraklin Street. Pics taken today:

Fantastic photos Urban - the bldg sure has a huge presence there - fills a massive gap. Can't get used to the size of it!

Loving this one, really wish that this design had been chosen for the City Central 1 site instead. Hopefully this one doesn't age quite as poorly as ANZ House (don't know if anyone agrees but I think that it already looks outdated in the skyline). Thanks also for the latest photo update!

I had a meeting in there a couple of weeks ago, it looks nice inside. Interesting choice of suspended ceiling (at least on the floor I was on) instead of gyprock tiles or similar, they had open mesh, anodised black. You could see all the pipes etc above.
Exit on the right in the direction of travel.

Great photos guys, looking striking from Vic Square in particular.

Going off the webcam today it looks like some of the bracing structures have now been attached to the eastern facade

Walked by this today and was excited to see the first braces added. I reckon the reflections against the glass will add even more interest.

Fantastic photos from a different perspective. The cluster of old Government buildings of the same height, in the background, will hopefully be a thing of the past with the new height rules.

I don't mind it at all, in fact. I'm surprised how much of a tribute it is - so much so that it couldn't possibly be accidental. It even has a penthouse level, and that's practically unheard of these days.
