So much like for the above comment. This project is crap. More blank walls and uninspired design.

[U/C] Re: Frome Central | retail/hotel/student | towers:134/75m &

I wouldn't mind the student building if they manage to paint it in an interesting manner. The circular windows are cute, and with the right paint job, with say various colours (done well) it would actually be quite fun. Our skyline lacks colour and a simple building like this would be a great way to...

Love the update, and I really hope this does get approved. Great addition to our skyline.
Not a fan of the student accommodation but hey, if we can get the main tower out of this, then great.

[SWP] Re: Festival Centre office tower | 108m | 27 levels | office

Not too bad could be better yes but if the Casino re-development is to go ahead, like mentioned above, this could compliment it. The height is a game changer for sure in this part of the city. Finally a new building for that post card shot will take centre stage. Any word of the Intercontinental wil...

[PRO] Re: 261-263 Pulteney Street | 71m | 23 levels | Mixed Use

Calling it now it will be like the Kodo design where it was upgraded in same design with blank walls left and right. Lol but this I don't think will have blank walls just an ugly design. Why can't we have the sleek 100-199m designs I've seen approved in Melbourne? Or Brisbane? Or the GC? Or Sydney? ...

[COM] Re: 115 King William Street | 91m | 26lvls | Office

I don't dislike it as much as I thought I would. With the potential PO development in the works and more glass towers going up around this, it could grow to be a nice simple addition to our skyline.

Ahhhh! The centre is still quite new though. Here's hoping a new owner could fulfil the site's potential.

I'm sorry but that only outlines how poor this design is. We've waited 25 years for... this? Adelaide can do a lot better. We already have a very concrete, boxy skyline. This will do us no favours. Look at how 91 KW St turned out... This will have more of an impact.

[VIS] Re: University of Adelaide Redevelopment (North Tce Campus)

It would be great if this could then make way for Uni SA to really re-develop their City West campus, especially the North Terrace side. I have heard there are further plans, and I love what they have done with the new additions to that campus. But lets be honest. The red brick, yellow finishing are...

Wonderful, this will only add to the vibrancy of North Terrace and to the great level of architecture seen in a lot of the newer medical/education projects in the city.

[U/C] Re: Festival Plaza Redevelopment | $800 million

I like the front facade of the Festival Centre. I would hope this would extend to the other Festival Centre buildings. And GOD I hope that ugly brown brick around the base of the centre is changed. That and the mural are an eyesore. The office tower has always looked much like this has it not? I fin...
