Hopefully they'll spend a bit more money on Architects with this tower, as it has a huge frontage and will be able to hide the carpark.
It's a shame that Watermans proposal never went through for this site.
$70m go-ahead for city projects

TWO multi-million dollar city building developments were approved by Adelaide City Council last night.
The council's Development Assessment Panel unanimously voted in favour of both applications.
The first one passed, the Mayfair Apartments, will be a $40 million five-storey residential and retail development on the corner of Hutt and Angas streets.
Karidis Corporation will develop the former Hutt Street Hospital site, which has been lying vacant since 2003. It will have 36 apartments, two commercial tenancies and a car park.
The second development, by the Samaras Group, is a $30 million 10-storey glass-fronted office complex on the corner of Gilles and King William streets at the former Repco site.
Facing King William St in front of a recently completed eight-storey car park, the environmentally-friendly building will have a 4-5 Greenstar rating.
Architect of both buildings, Rob Cheesman, said the King William St office complex would attract major tenants and give the precinct a boulevard character.
"It will be the first cab off the rank under the council's Development Assessment Panel's plans for inviting new buildings to King William St south," he said.
Mr Cheesman, who is a member of the Development Assessment Panel, excused himself from last night's meeting citing a conflict of interest.
