    All that the Rockrose website states is "Surrounded by a landscaped plaza *enter more advertising guff here*".

    The rendering on the previous page indicates that it will be a stand-alone scraper re the windows down the whole side, even at the base.

    ...and judging from this construction pic you posted on 28 March, it's apparent that there's about a 15ft gap to the neighboring building. That's enough to nurture some appropriate foliage:

    Well... that space is a street. Maybe an agricultural revolution will produce levitating plants.

    Boom-tish! Bring on the revolution and it will not be televised.

    If you're talking about the rendering on the previous page...the point being that it is free-standing. A section of the footpath could be landscaped as part of the plaza, depending on the development application to council.

    If you're talking about the gap in your construction shot, a hoarding going over a street or lane - interesting.[/i]

    Although one would expect a newspaper to post the actual rendering, I don't think that it did in this case. I work near this building and note when walking by that there is a significant setback after the first 7 or 10 floors. However, the setback does not appear in the rendering.

    What do you gents think?

    Wait. I see the setback in the rendering now.

    Hmmm..I guess I wouldn't mind living there :wink:

    Thanks for the pic.

    I'm wondering, though, what's the area around there like? I did a little research on the area around this building, and it always mentions that the city is working hard to make the area more of a vibrant 24/7 community and calls for an 'urban renewal'. Have things there gotten so bad that such measure are called for?

    Not at all. It was just always offices. Now, everyone wants it mixed, so there will be more residents, shops, etc. The area was never bad, just not "24/7."
