[U/C] Re: 27-31 Angas Street | 103m | 30 Levels | Kodo Apartments

I've been a skyscraper/development perv for 20 years and can't recall a tower that so closely resembled the render as Kodo does.

Apparently this is called “Spence on light” now but I can’t find any new renders or info.

Re: Interactive Map of Adelaide CBD Development

Since when is there a 200m observation tower vision? If it's that decades old one, what's the point of including it and not other never built talls? Hi rev, thank you for the list of 'never built talls' you sent me. Much appreciated. I'm not sure where you got this additional tall, but since you in...

Everyone has their own personal rules for interpreting online reviews and scores. Some ignore 0 and 5 stars and go for the median, for instance. Personally? I don't trust positive reviews due to astroturfing. I don't trust all negative reviews because I have had experience in customer service in the...

[VIS] Re: Memorial Drive upgrade

SBD: from memory (albeit a long one for me), the hard surface area can accommodate 4 courts side by side. It's hard to make out in that render, but I think they just drew up a single court in the middle. With a little help from the angle of the render, it looks plausible that all seats have some sor...

The glazing will be behind various vertical elements attached in front, so its quality won't necessarily make or break the podium.

Tower proper on the other hand...

[SWP] Re: 69-71 Light Square | ~55m | 14lvls | Residential

Was curious what this will look like now and noticed this amendment from April last year that we appear to have missed. The prospects are not great: Variations include - changes to heritage entrance (main entrance), facade cladding changed to painted CFC sheet, painted precast to low & unfinished p...

I’m so bored of this lot screeching “...but LIGHT’S VISION!” every time anything north of North Terrace is proposed as if he was Jesus walking and every stroke of his 1836 quill is sacrosanct.

Just me, or have they screwed up something chronic on the patterning of the facade on the top right?
