EQ, A’Beckett Street

Repost from this day in 2017:

The the 60 storey purple goodness of the #EQtower in #ABeckettStreet, another #ElenbergFraser. Don’t mind this one, it’s even got quite substantial setbacks and a proper podium – just not really a fan of fatter bases, or those balconies formed by just leaving out a pane of glass, but it’s slick, though not a sparkly as I hoped (wrong time of day). I hadn’t realised, but a lot of the glass is actually backed by wall, maybe conc, maybe just plasterboard. At least that means less thermal sun load.

Update – this side is now covered up by one tower of the 80 storey twin tower Queens Square next door.
