    Default Sydney, city of the future.

    This is one of the most beautiful cities in the world, its mix of natural beauty and astounding architecture makes it almost surreal. This is a topic for general discussion of the existing buildings in sydney.

    Sydney is a little bit of Times Squareand it has some of Hong Kong's neon lights. It's beautiful.

    If you look from darling harbour towards the city at dusk when the lights are on it looks just like Hong Kong.

    I think that this area of Sydney really needs more Skyscrapers, its a nice little clump right now but it could do with more.

    emmeka LOL @ "its a nice little clump right now".....hardly as lots of clusters of talls are forming right before our very eyes!! :shock:

    The ball is already rolling as far as Sydney's C.B.D. i.e. Central Business District is going.

    Just take another look at the previous post where the buildings under construction are coloured orange with the key of what they are.

    Some 7 that are coming on line (besides many others) that come immediately to mind....are all part of Sydney of the future.

    The new model for John Boyd Tower:



    KENS i.e. Westpac Bank's new World HQ:

    _

    Meriton Tower:

    ____________

    Foster & Partners' lumiere (the taller) @ Frasier Suites, Regent Place @ 101 Bathurst Street:



    The other Foster & Co.; BT Tower:



    ...and of course Latitude @ World Square i.e. Ernst & Young Tower:

    Yes Im aware of those, but I wasnt referring to Sydney itself, i was refering to the 'clump' of buildings across the bridge opposite the city(on the road out of Sydney)

    That wasn't clear emmeka however, they're all part of Sydney city, regardless whether they're all part of the main Sydney downtown or otherwise.

    Here's Bondi Junction that's not across Sydney Harbour, but to the east.

    A rendering of Genoa Apartment Towers, which has just topped-out and nearing completion:



    The Nokia Tower which is currently getting a makeover in white:



    A cluster of towers in Bondi Juction....



    An aerial:



    St Leonards:

    The tallest in St Leonards, Forum....



    Almost completed, Abode - 2 renderings.....

    Once again an aerial of Chatswood:
