Look at the glazing strip just above the podium on the first floor break. The really reflective blue strip sitting under the thicker floor line of the first tower floor. Imagine if the whole tower was clad like that, it'd be so much better.

Re: Crane Counter: CBD 10 | Metro 4| Total 14

That crane looks like a Favelle Favco M380, a diesel crane, and yes, they're not quiet!

Also the Realm crane is on its way down for removal this weekend.

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

Looking at that shot there is an extra core pit towards the left hand side of the shot, presumably for the carpark, looks too small for a second tower. I thought that could be for a second tower crane base. Could be, it's hard to gauge the size of it from the photo. It looks like its wall based for...

I agree, this looks like it's going to be a stunner.

Notice the slight change in floor plates too with the angled indent. I didn't realise that would be the case.

From today. It keeps getting better and better. Once complete with a full clean it'll be amazing.

Deserved to have another 40 levels on it!

It actually looks quite striking. I also believe the void floors will also have some feature lighting too.

There’s some new gold mesh cladding on the western side of the tower’s roof feature. Only a small amount so far but it looks as though it could be quite striking.

Re: News & Discussion: General CBD Development

That’s not really a great location for office space. But superb for apartments. Please explain why not a good location for office space? Not a prime location if you were going to build 18 levels of office space. I know offices exist in the southern part of KW St, I’m just saying it’s not the best. ...

There is still a lot of work going on this tower, despite the Christmas/New Year shut down across other sites. More of the exposed concrete floor levels are being painted white, this time on the eastern side of the tower. Also the roof structure is being added, increasing the overall height even fur...

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

I noticed tonight that the western side of the tower has had some of the exposed floors concrete painted white. It actually looks quite good and adds much needed contrast. I’m assuming all floors will get the same treatment.

There may be a slight glimmer of hope yet.
