Because centrally located real estate in a dynamic, vibrant, multi-million metropolis that is a government, transportation, communication and financial hub for a large countries, even if they are in the third world, is surely more expensive than a plot in a flat, peripheral, sclerotic country town with an empty hinterland...

but we are getting off-topic....
If you feel that why, why are you on this forum?

Furthermore, have you all forgotten the obvious. No construction worker in the third world will be on $80K a year, no crane operator in the third world will be on $120k a year....
In the third world there probably isn't WorkCover, RDOs, green and rainbow tape....
In the third world, the application and development process is probably not as rigorous as here. You could probably bribe an official for approval in most developing countries....
Ah the old salaries chestnut.

How does that hold up on the east coast or Perth or other first world nations?

Why is Realm a great design but many others turds?

What happened to the little white blocks that were going to be worked into the windows from the bottom and fade out to the top?

They were only ever on the other three faces (at podium levels).

We're both kind of right, there is a little bit of of it in the centre of the eastern facade, but it doesn't extend as far forward as it does in the renders. But then there is also an effect on the central windows above the podium, curious why they've ditched that when it's what gave this building some defining character...

It makes a big impact as you drive up Port Road into the city.

Yes the height of that hammerhead crane does make an impact besides that of the building itself. Pity about the Hyatt development in Pirie Street and its height being cut back. Like rev said it should be knocked back. A global brand like Hyatt should be involved with something substantial, well at least, equal or better (definitely) than that of Sofitel.

This is very prominent looking at the cbd from the regency road bridge over the train lines. Just further illustrates how flat and under developed it all is.
