So here’s Brisbane city’s skyline today. Can you spot the difference to the view you’d normally see from the cliffs at Kangaroo Point? And, no, it’s not the dreary, cloudy day that makes you think you’re somewhere in Melbourne!
There’s no cranes.
Just out of shot to the left there are cranes on the new academic building at QUT and out of sight in the distance at North Quay there’s cranes working busily on the new Meriton Infinity Apartments. But for the first time in what must be many, many years, this view doesn’t include construction of a big apartment or office building.
