My favourite floorplan in Skyline (30 Macrossan Street) is the G2 floorplan. It is a 3 bed apartment, and most have 2 carparks. There is a big difference in views from lower floors (which have a good city street view towards the Marriott Hotel, and some river glimpses between Admiralty Quays and Admiralty One) and the higher floors, that have a river view over Admiralty One.

The downside with this apartment is that each of the 3 bedrooms will look into The Macrossan tower and the Soliel tower, both being built right next to Skyline.

Apt 401 in Skyline, which is this floorplan on one of the highest floors, is currently listed for sale for $899,000. The listing states: "This apartment has been priced for a quick sale at only $899,000+. It was independently valued at $990,000 in September 2009."

This apartment was sold off-the-plan in September 2004 for $770,000. The current owner paid $970,000 in November 2007.

The same apartment downstair, Apt 391, sold for $875,000 in October 2009, so my guess is that the independent valuer for 401 was wrong by $100,000! Also:
Apt 291 sold for $765,000 in October 2009.
Apt 281 sold for $755,000 in March 2009.
Apt 141 sold for $740,000 in February 2010.
Apt 91 sold for $707,500 in November 2009.

The developer has a number of this type of apartment still on his books, it seems.
