I suppose i'd take the first one but looks like a bit of a Meriton job that you'll find a thousand of in sydney. Maybe the developer got lost?

The facade looks incredibly busy in that last shot (maybe the effect of the angle and reflections against the windows?). But I quite like this.

I make it 16 stories if you allow 2 stories behind street level scaffolding. note this picture is from 3 weeks ago. I guess they could have a 'mezzanine' floor, are those counted as a separate level? Depends who is counting but CTBUH I believe no (but a 15-17 level lego brick bunnings window dump l...

Re: News & Discussion: General CBD Development

Not to mention it is prime land for a much larger commercial development. Wasted opportunity to get rid of a puke building. :roll: What part of 'Adelaide has an too much vacant commercial office space' doesn't quite stick? I'm genuinely curious. We don't need more large commercial developments, par...

Are there no floor numbers on the cores anywhere? From my vantage point I think I count floorplates 23 then 4 exposed on the northern core, so I think Ben might be on the money with 6 rises left (including what's in the core box).

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

Does anyone know who the tenant(s) of the office tower are? I hope it's someone like SGIC or the state government. I think it would deeply unseemly for a big miner (e.g. SANTOS) or big developer to have naming rights towering over parliament; with the casino right beside, it would be a pretty shock...

^^again, read the article

DPTI is consolidating from seven sites down to one, and saving $50 million in leasing costs over 10 years.
Read the article for what, details about my points about Queensland? Or do you think DPTI is the whole SA government?

Is it normal interstate to have any one government departments sprawled across heaps of office buildings? By that I mean, if the DPTI have offices in three or four buildings, why are the government not working towards getting them in one building? Surely it's better for productivity, not have staff...

I suppose there's an element of truth in 'changing the skyline'. As a kid coming home from school westbound from Norwood, 45 Pirie St filled that picture, together with its huge ING logo (wonder if it's still there?). This new building will cover that up. By the way I'm struggling to think of a more...
