    The green lantern on the northern side.
    It will glow green in the evenings.



    The cranes atop of World tower are expected to come down by Feb./March next year.

    Pic taken only 5 minutes walk from my apartment:



    I call this pic "Crane Mazurka" (Mazurka being a frenzied Polish dance from the 16th Century):



    ..and one I took a few weeks ago from Goulburn Street:



    The entrance foyer and the sofas on the left are covered with
    top quality suede leather; very comfy:

    Internally, the sky-rise apartments won't be completed until late 2004/early 2005,
    although Meriton is running ahead of schedule with this one

    Well alejo, it's all subjective eg. I like, she likes, he doesn't like, they do like, we don't like, etc, etc, etc...

    Speaking of...

    ...Sydney on a social level is unpredictable and the same goes for some of the architecture.
    World Tower is like a good movie script i.e. it twists and turns, unpredtictable and constantly retains a fascination.
    This tower is going to be a beauty ("beauty" being Aussie slang). :wink:
