7 levels in the CBD, what a joke. I wouldve expected developers to be pushing for taller buildings seeing the ACC has been stripped of its powers rather than chopping 10 floors off of them.
Expect away - but economics is what developers look at these days, not how tall they can go. Developers are speculators, they expect a return. If they don't estimate being able to sell 17 floors then they'll build only as many as they estimate will sell.
What happened to the HUGE demand for office space that was expected? Is it still coming? *hopes so* (I'm not religious but I'd like a praying smilie here please)
