This will look so tall from south and north views...
That Hickory system works like a charm, once they get into the groove.
Hickory pic once more
Will reserve judgement until we actually see how the west-facing concrete wall is treated - if at all.
I did get a couple of pics (July 18th) of the west wall from the big car park at the end of Flinders Lane. It's not looking too good, so far.
The other facades are looking great.
Collins House is going to be quite prominent from south of the river.
The aspect we wish we didn't have.
^^ That's a ghastly image, hope they are still going ahead with this:
– The new proposed west facade seeks to provide greater activation, character, light and view amenity to the western boundary. The circular windows shown opposite are based on a prototypical 750mm window apperture. The windows are dispersed in a random pattern with a greater amount shown toward the top of the building to provide differentiated outlook and flexibility with internal planning. This strategy corresponds with the load bearing capacity of the buildings west facade and is designed to appear more ‘perforated’ toward the top. At night these elements provide a unique and surprising identity to the western boundary. A blue light is positioned at the top level to the northern and southern boundary to accent the buildings identity with a ‘Melbourne Blue’ colouration.
