It’s still bloody ugly. You can’t polish a turd.

Lovely shot of the vertical slum.

Building looks really nice from the slopes of Mount Taylor.

I haven’t seen it look nice from anywhere else. Up close it’s very odd.

At least 10 apartments for sale on Allhomes today (98 Corinna). 4 for rent.

Come on people, a modicum of high-rise close to city centres frees up more houses in the suburbs for normal people.

I own a unit here, what a bloody nightmare, when it came time re-sell no one wanted to buy it, the only way we could sell it was at a massive loss so we just kept it and rent it out at some absurd amount per week. The place leaks after a lot of rain and every hallway stinks of curry.

Ugly ugly building. I can’t believe they left that hole when they could have squeezed in some more profit-making apartments. I love 1967’s idea of the scary squash court! And strangely I like the photo. Great colour and patterns. It works, in a Hong Kongesque way. In reality, like Madam Cholet said, it just sticks out by itself. Oh, not that I’m suggesting it would look better if they built some more like it around it!

This photo really emphasises the hole in the buildimg – makes it look like they forgot to add some rooms.

Great shot.

I live in hope that one day they’ll glass in both sides of that and build the scariest squash court in the ACT.

Is that Lara Bingle in the window?????

Madam Cholet 12:20 pm 15 May 12

Yes, what a depressing sight. God I hate that buidling. Just rises up out of nowhere, all on it’s own. Which leads you to believe that its lonesome state won’t last too long into the future. And what’s with the big “hole” they built into the design? Does it have any use – can you get out there – probably not. Just makes it look even dodgier.

+1. Looks like it could be from a slum in Rio or SE Asia or somewhere. Although the lack of washing on the balconies probably gives it away.
