It's a chunky looking beast... surprised it only has 600 apartments.

It's not particularly attractive.. but then it's forgiven because it's next to the freeway.

By all means, glue some coloured panels to it, but I see nothing of substance that distinguishes this, architecturally speaking, from the CE standard-form buildings that are so reviled around these parts.

The only thing making it all look better than the Southbank-style average is the open space, which is absolutely a good thing. But those apartment layouts make it look very much like it's a low-end development to be pitched at the investment and overseas markets.

The podium is all I like tbh. But the main road gets a service grille which is not ideal.

The top and podium look fantastic. Love the reference to shipping containers. The tower proper is bog standard cheap design.
