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

Can we please stop with the general nastiness on both sides? The nastiness seems to break out every once in a while and has been going on for the last few years now. It's draining to read and probably discourages people from contributing to the forum. I personally dislike this design based on the cu...

[VIS] Re: 181 Waymouth Street | ~60m | 17 Levels | Apartments

Anyone else think it looks a bit like the 123 Flinders Street proposal (before it became the mysterious 207 Pulteney)?

I wonder if the architects are the same (Pruszinski)?

[U/C] Re: Renaissance Arcade | 132m | 40 Levels | Realm Apartments

The Sofitel will be a glass box. Adelaide Oval has no impact on the skyline. It depends on whether "best development this city has ever seen" is in the context of public or private development, and whether we're talking about skyline impact, or economic/social impact. Adelaide Oval probably wins fr...

[APP] Re: 266 - 270 Pulteney Street | 44m | 11 Levels | Mixed Us

I'm kind of surprised. I thought this would be less controversial than the Pirie Street hotel, but that one gets the go-ahead to demolish a nice old facade as long as they put a plaque in. Meanwhile, this one is sent back. I recognise that this design is fairly mediocre, and heritage notwithstanding...

43.5m tall and a fair bit less controversial than the Pirie Street proposal.

Unlike previous proposals for the site, they want to demolish the heritage building.

I can't really get behind that. What are others' thoughts?

Render and documentation on SCAP website. Height is 113.8m.

[APP] Re: 51 Pirie Street | 153m | 40lvls | Hotel

SCAP website says 28 storeys, which probably puts it at 100-110m. Good height, but not a new tallest. I'd say the design is more important. It's still tall enough to be prominent and the CBD is large enough that we aren't pressed for space yet. That said, it would be nice to see something noticeably...

Site has been cleared, but it doesn't seem like they're in a rush to start construction.

I'm pretty sure this is the last level of the podium? Interestingly, I don't think I've seen a lift core/jump form for this one, but I could be wrong.

Context shot. This one is pretty prominent in certain parts of the east of the CBD since there's not too much highrise around it (yet).

[APP] Re: 29 Twin Street | ~130m | 36lvls | Student accom

I'm going to go against popular opinion. I don't particularly like it at this stage. The "window pods" on the northern wall look random and abrupt, especially on the close up render. It looks a bit jarring in my opinion. The render makes the building look fairly sleek, but renders can be deceptive a...

[PRO] Re: 98-100 North Terrace | 52m | 14 Levels | Quest Hotel

It looks like once this is built, it'll look like it's already been a part of the skyline for at least the past 15 to 20 years. Kind of like the new North Terrace student apartments but blander. Even a more interesting roofline like its neighbours could do a lot for this building I feel. I suppose i...

Funny how developments can be so polarising. I don't mind this. I like the "crinkle cut" windows on the southern face. Adds a bit of uniqueness which distinguishes it from other boxes in Adelaide. The blank walls aren't ideal though. The GPO tower should at least block the eastern wall out from some...
