Photographer's Note

Central Plaza One, Queen Street, Brisbane

Which way is up? Between Central Plaza One and Two is a narrow alleyway now serving as a site access to Central Plaza Three under construction, and this is where I took this shot from. Built in 1988, the tower was Brisbane’s tallest until Riparian Plaza was built in 2005, reining as Queensland’s tallest for 17 years. Shaped like a crystalline diamond, from east/west it appears to have a triangular top, and from north/south a flat top. The entire top section is a machine unique in Australia; it turns 359 degrees and from it drops the window cleaning service. When operational, the entire top of the structure takes a whole different appearance as the arm extends over the street. At 174 metres, Central Plaza One is rapidly losing status as a tall tower, every year being surpassed by a taller structure in the fast growing city. It still remains one of the most beautiful pieces in our skyline.

As far as position goes, tilt this image by 90 degrees and it gives you an alternate view point each as dizzying as the last.
