I sometimes despair over developers who have the arrogance to build such things in such inappropriate places.
Hmmm.The bridge is lovely but the building is unfortunate.
Yes, like your previous commentors, I'm wondering how much silver crossed how many palms to despoil this view with that thing.
«Louis» sees why the apartment block is controversial. As billyB suggested, there must have been some payoffs somewhere...Be that as it may, «Louis» welcomes your contribution to Sunday Bridges.
J Bar, very interesting image. Had never seen the bridge (or the building for that matter) from the south side of Sydney. Thank you.
i can see why the tower is controversial. the tenants must pay the price for the view of the bridge!:p marvelous shot!
I love how you've composed this!
It sure is in the way.
Controversial indeed ...
Very unfortunate, what is the architect thinking and those responsible to approve it ...
Well ... sadly, money speaks louder than words.Happy travels!!
superb summery image. in here, we are surrounded by white :)
Wowgrande immagine piena di effetto !!!!Mi piacerebbe molto poterlo vdere da vicino !Buona giornata :)Myriam
It is a shame to block the view of such a pretty bridge. Great shot.
Blends into it surrounds nicely, not. You know, the architect was quite proud of his building and disappointed that he could not build his other two towers.
Impressive bridge. Merry Christmas and Happy New Year to all my blogging buddies...Patty, and Abe LincolnBrookville, Ohio
It's a handsome bridge!
Andrew, I think the only people in Sydney who like this building would be the ones that live in it and enjoy the specatcular views. Most Sydneysiders would be relieved that the plans to build more towers here and at The Rocks, never eventuated.
We've yet to see what they do with Barangaroo.That tower has no redeeming features whatsoever - apart from the view and us mere mortals have no access to that.
I like those rainbow arch type bridges!
I can see why the tower is controversial, but it's a great shot though.
It is a shame that the view is ruined, but it's definitely a gray area. How do you prevent someone from building on their property just because there is something to see somewhere beyond it?
Mike B, thankfully there are stricter rules these days preventing people overdeveloping some sensitive areas such as this but it is still a constant struggle.
Might be considered a carbuncle But when I stayed in it on a sydney visit the views are amazing. imagine a view of the bridge (good old Dorman Long Steel) Th e opera house and in the harbour the QE2.British Steel again. Look on the good points.
