Frankly, I am sick to death of waiting 15 minutes to drive along Frome road from Pirie street to North terrace when it should only take 2 minutes.

[COM] Re: West Franklin | 54m & 64m | 17 & 20 lvls | Apartments

Anyone know if they used recycled red bricks of the era (ie early-mid 1900s) to look more authentic?

No.

Built are the construction company. Hassell are the Architects for the GPO building. Woods Bagot are the Architects for U City.

It must be ready to go anytime now! They wouldn't be advertising 'under construction' as a joke. Here is hoping work begins next Monday!

Move on.
