  • Another boring, cookie-cutter glass and concrete monstrosity. Do any developers in this city have any imagination at all? I guess there are chumps queuing up buy this crap as usual.

  • Great Development, and what a place to work and live. Close to parks, recreational areas, art centers, good coffees and work (if you work in the CBD). We need more of this, and less urban sprawl!!!

  • There is/was a real opportunity to take a key site on Boundary Street, West End and extend both the feel and retail of one of this city’s remaining highstreets.
    The edges of this site are very long yet the street level interaction appear poor. The small number of street level storefronts and community uses is a significant shortcoming. The precise location of service access needs further work.
    The prospect of lifting the communal areas off the street level into the podium is problematic.
    I wonder if the architects in this design have resolved the challenge of varying levels across three street frontages in a way that recognises the potential for adding to the life in this part of the suburb?

  • This city is subtropical. This looks like some melbourne try hard building. We need sunshading up here the sun is hot. Those palm trees look good not to sure how they will grow up in the air without soil. Not much open space on that site, who makes all the decisions in this town its like the architects who design these buildings are the same ones in council that approve them. It makes you wonder

  • A decent design that should look good for some time yet. Much better than most things going up in and around brisbane.
