Please, spare us all these outdated and frankly ill conceived comments about leaving the foreshore alone and how we should protect this "open space". What you and other detractors fail to recognise is that this "open space" is in fact "wasteland". Barely if ever utilised by anyone. Cut off by the roads, which you seem to have such an affinity for. A dribble of people use this area for a run or a walk each day, and they will still be able to do this under the new plan. Perth has no lack of "open space" in both the city and the endless suburbs. I don't believe this project is visionary, its obvious, what else would you do with a wasteland?

Perth does in fact have a "standard shape". It is a Pyramid. With the tallest building at the centre of St George's Terrace & the heights reducing down to the foreshore; Northbridge and the east & west city gateways Put up by the city fathers decades ago this is still today, just about, in place. Developing our foreshore simply needs to keep this height ratio in mind before adding more unsightly, ad-hoc & built down to the lowest price, "structures". "Wasteland"? That's what I fear our foreshore will become if the ungainly monster height buildings are allowed.
