Chifley Tower

 Chifley Tower is located at 2 Chifley Square, bounded by Hunter Phillip and Bent Streets. It contains an office tower and the Chifley Plaza retail area. Chifley Tower built in 1992, is the second tallest skyscraper in Sydney, at 241 metres when measured to the top of its spire. Forty One Restaurant located on level 41 and 185m above street level, provides spectacular views of the city and Sydney Harbour. The square and tower are named after Ben Chifley, a former Prime Minister of Australia.

  1. That is a spectacular tower. Fantastic architecture and design.

    I like that you contrasted the very traditional and mainstream church with the "controversial" one occupied by the Scientologists. They certainly garner controversy all over the world. News reports have them sending a plane to Haiti to bring supplies and counselors. Great. Just what the poor, suffering Haitians needs in this sad devastation.

  38. OK then, so THIS is an example of interesting modern (relatively) architecture. A great capture too -- hard to get that kind of shot I should think. (NOt that I have too many skyscrapers around here to practice on).
