[PRO] Re: 52-66 King William Street | ~65m | 15 Levels | Southern Cross Arcade

My :2cents: Cheers Medium to large organisations prefer large floorplates, so there will always be a tenden...

This will bring thousands of workers back to the central cbd area. This will be great for the mall and surrounds. Will be glad to see those $2 shops fronting king William disappear. Stretching my memory a lot here, but about 25 years ago those shops were great for the dirt cheap, illegal, boot leg ...

I know the final design of a building often differs from the fancy computer renders we see, but this takes the cake! :D

Any ideas what the shed is really for?
Looks like they're offsetting the construction costs with some hydro grow, but i could be wrong

That feeds into my concern that it will appear overbearing on our prime boulevard. This should have stepped back as it rises.

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?

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...
