35 Spring Street, bit too big

Repost this day 2017 (I’m still annoyed by it but I’m getting used to it) : From this angle the new #35SpringStreet (in a variation on #BatesSmart patterned #glass curtain wall house style) is just a tad #dominating – new tall buildings belong in the #CBD, but this was a low/med rise #streetscape facing the park, now there’s this #rude interruption; but if there was a setback at maybe the 10th floor, like the rules said (but were increasingly ignored from c2005 till reintroduced as mandatory 5m minimum last year), id be happy(ier). Thanks #MatthewGuy. Now we have to live with the ones that got through, for ever. (Also dont understand how there’s no setback at all on the side boundary – are there windows there ??)
