Since I saw the first proposals for a 20-storey residential tower next to the Southern Cross Club, I have never understood the idea behind SkyPlaza. It strikes me that residents of this tower can expect to enjoy lovely views of the multi-storey carpark at
Woden Plaza Westfield Woden and even perhaps might get to overlook the Southern Cross itself, or maybe even KFC and JB Hi-Fi. But each to their own – if people want to pay huge amounts of money to live there, that’s their decision.
But now they’ve started to paint the building in a bizarre mix of cream, purple, white and yellow. Who thought this was a good idea? Was it too much to expect this building might be painted in a neutral, less offensive, colour scheme? How about white?
