This tower needs the student development next door to balance it out. The vertical lines of the student tower, narrow shape and tapering design will offset the bulk of Adelaidean.

I still feel the facade on this tower is a massive let down. It looks cheap. Very disappointing.

Is that glazing I can see in Adelarch’s photos?
Certainly is! From what I saw on my drive past is that it's a charcoal colour with high reflectivity. Once the gold accents are placed over this could end up incredible, it'll be great to see the facade once the tower rises above it's neighbours.

Re: News & Discussion: General CBD Development

In total, it's quite an impressive list of hotel brands coming to Adelaide in the next coming years... So what are we up to now: UC: Sofitel -- Currie Street Crowne Plaza -- Frome Street Hotel Indigo -- Market Street Casino -- Railway Station Potentially happening: Adelaide Oval Westin -- GPO Park ...

Topping out ceremony was a couple of weeks ago.
So what's the metal frame work going up :?:
It's for the roof level. The lift over run and plant room are all hidden by it. The topping out ceremony is usually for the last concrete pour.

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

Agree. The panels are neither "golden" or stunning. More like a faded yellow as previously noted. Interesting effect yes, but as usual nowhere near what the renders promised. So far, despite his building being a bit more interesting than most is is a bit underwhelming. Have you seen the panels in p...

Great shots!

The more I see it, the more I feel this will be somewhat underwhelming. Imagine the reflectivity of the GPO development on this facade? It would lift what is a very plain design to a higher level.

Completely bereft of any architectural flair or expression. Looks like it's been designed in Minecraft. Completely shocking.

[APP] Re: 269 North Terrace | 118m | 36 Levels | Student accommodation

Good to see the developers listened to the objections of using precast concrete spandrels, and replaces them with reflective cladding. I still believe the original full height glazed approach would have been better, but as long as this new cladding is as reflective as shown, this could still be stri...

Viewed from that angle, I like the three tier steps that are obvious. From Art, to the first setback, to the pinnacle. Once the screens are removed and all of the glazing is installed, it could be quite striking.

This tower could be nothing short of spectacular... If the materials are of a continuing high quality, we could have an absolute cracker on our hands.

Also what is that UFO above the Adelaidean?
Office light reflection, presumably.

Also, not really surprising that this is shooting up quicker, considering the far simpler floor plate design.

I think you'll find the rooftop bar is on the Hotel/Podium section. I'm pretty sure the top two levels are Penthouses.

Looks like there'll be more facade soon, looking at all of those mounting brackets.
