type

Apartment Building
These ultra-luxury apartment buildings were highly contentious at the time, as people were amazed by the great view and urban space that was created by the demolition of the office buildings that previously occupied the site. Talking about the harbour became briefly fashionnable, and there were even many serious calls to knock down the Cahill Expressway, thus opening the Quay fully. Thank goodness the cognoscenti have found something else to talk about (you know who you are.....!).
The harbour-side of the development, whilst enveloping a public street, has provided a very nice colonade with bars, restaurants, a cinema, etc.
