Thread: World tower - sydney

    Default World tower - sydney

    World tower in sydney is almost complete, its a huge complicated building around 75 floors. Its all residential and i think that theres a hotel as well. I was in sydney not long ago and in real life its a MONSTER! well, compared with the surrounding buildings.

    Here is an image:

    Its a fantastic tower. I've been lucky enough to watch it rise over the past 2 years. I believe it is all residential with retail in the base - no hotel.

    Here's a recent shot from Culwalla over at SkyskraperCity.

    We could use more skyscraper monsters like this one right here. :wink:

    It is indeed an impressive tower and the 200m+ office tower going next to it isn't bad either, the two look like they will compliment each other well. Here's a couple more photos of them both.





    However this is the real one to watch in Aus at the moment, the mighty Eureka tower in Melbourne. This recent photo shows the core at around 500ft which is halfway to its final height of 297m. At 91 floors this building is a monster and is the tallest building under construction outside of Asia at this time.

    Great shots JonY. Who got up to the top of the tower?

    The density of Sydney is truly impressive; not a parking lot to be seen. Parking lots are the absence of the city. Unfortunately, even New York has them.

    Not quite the top JM, but CULWULLA got to level 74 and took those great pics while he had the opportunity. Who wouldn't?

    Not for long emmeka as W.T. is getting a new neighbor i.e. Latitude. BTW World Tower is not all residential, as the top green glass cladded Premium floors at this stage will be serviced apartments.

    As far as surrounding buildings go, Latitude will reach 728ft on completion, at this stage topping out late 2004. .

    A rendering of Latitude with incorrect coloring:

    Here is a pic of World Tower and Latitude both still under construction, with Latitude's correct coloring:
