Why do people make such strange (negative) assumptions? Simply put, the buyer of an apartment which is significant % of our total build cost asks for something, yeah you try to do it!

[APP] Re: 203 North Terrace | 109m | 33 levels | Student Accom

If this goes ahead, it’ll be the third recent student accomodation to be built over 100m (along with Twin St and the other North Tce one). Wonder when the market reaches saturation point. I wonder how easy it is to reconfigure "student accommodation" to anything else when the market moves to requir...

In the same way Berlin would have that venetian look, if the concrete were "sand stone" colour, instead of "pigeon shit grey"

[U/C] Re: 11 Frome Street | 135m | 37 Levels | Crowne Plaza / Adelaidean | New tallest

Does anyone know what floor level the building is currently at? The concrete core appears to have topped out. I know there is discussion about this on earlier pages suggesting the core would be reconfigured and continue upwards, but this doesn't appear to be happening on site. Surely the highest po...

My own photograph from today: https://i.imgur.com/9l4ZrrP.jpg In the future do we get the Twin St tower sneaking in that shot? That and the commie block on North Terrace (next to realm) will have that corner vying for the mantle of "centre" of the CBD. Wow. Who would have seen that 15 years ago

I actually don't mind it the sandstone look seems to blend in with the adjacent heritage.
Nek minnit

The "sandstone" ends up being poured in 172 different shades of grey at Adelaide "give a fuck" Brightons and looks like a lego model of Vienna's Haus des Meeres.

In a way it reminds me of Velasca Tower in Milan

Yes, because they are both fugly

You really need to be standing on a rooftop somewhere to fully appreciate its ugliness, whereas this one you can take in from the street. Now that's service!

Interesting that the Advertiser's reporting of the inquiry is almost entirely focused on F&B pricing, with an "oh, the hotel will help keep those prices down" bit at the end. :roll:
Lowest common denominator is the Advertiser's specialty

Re: News & Discussion: Low/Mid-Rise CBD Development

I think this building was originally designed to be about 9 stories but was cut back simply to get planning approval. A couple of other buildings in this area have added extra floors since being built. The Adelaide Riviera was am abandoned office building before having 2 floors added and being conv...

Re: News & Discussion: Adelaide Airport & Airlines

Adelaide airport pty ltd and the state government must be disappointed with the lack of interest from international airlines. If you look at how many international airlines there are flying to Perth it really is embarrassing how Adelaide has struggled in this area in recent times. Air Asia pulled o...

[U/C] Re: 11 Frome Street | 135m | 37 Levels | Crowne Plaza / Adelaidean | New tallest

The core slip form is being removed. It will be interesting to see what happens here, from my "counting from a distance" there should still be two more rises plus plant room. Let's see what happens. I thought in the new plans the core room is swallowed by the two additional floors on the north side...

Segment on 9 news tomorrow about realm and adelaidean race to the top.
By my count, the core of Adelaidean can't have more than 3 to go before top out. Race is done and dusted.
