World's Best Tall Building is...on Broadway!

Go Sydney!

As a long-time resident of Pyrmont and more lately Ultimo, way back in February I wrote a short piece on this blog "a glimpse into Sydney's future" about the One Central Park development.

I also uploaded a few photos from the complex from during the construction phase, noting how despite my initial scepticism about the unusual concept of "vertical gardens", the finished article was looking set to be pretty impressive.

Since that time One Central Park has gone on through completion to put Broadway right on the map in being named the Best Tall Building in Asia and Australasia in June, and now it has gone one better still in being judged the Best Tall Building in the world

Bravo, what an achievement, adding to the already bright allure of living in Sydney's inner ring suburbs.


During the construction I was regularly left befuddled as to why on earth a residential tower on Broadway would need a helipad.

Turns out it was a podium and a "heliostat". Silly me.
