[U/C] Re: Penny Place | 78m | 24 levels | Apartments

I must admit, I'm pleasantly surprised by how this is progressing and revealing it's finished form. Yes, it may be simple, but the simple colour pallet with decent reflective glazing is quite nice. A standout? Far from it. But this may not end up being the blight on the skyline I first thought. Nice...

[U/C] Re: 104-106 Currie Street | 117m | 33lvl | Sofitel Hotel

Depends on how much higher above the core the roof feature sits.

Either which way, this has given the west end a maaaaasive height boost. Should be a cracker once finished.

This forum flip flops worse than a loose bottom. Go back a few pages and see all the paranoia surrounding this developments affect on the park lands and events. Now everyone’s happy to have this turd exist as it’ll bring ppl into Rundle st. Dwell and Adelaidian have done diddly to revitalise the ar...

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

There's not many images showing the tower, since there's a lot of uncertainty about if and when it's going to go ahead. It is going ahead. They haven't built the footings and 5 levels of core and columns just for fun. Hi CDJ, is the tower core the large structure covered in scaffolding to the left ...

The whole facade needs a clean, which may help things a touch. It'll be a case of "rolling it in glitter" so to speak. It's such a disappointing and underwhelming result.

Great pics Andy, the curves in the columns are already appearing clearly too.

I'm keen to see how this one progresses. I'm sure it'll be infinitely more interesting than Adelaidean next door.

Thank you. I thought @Pikey indicated that he/she had also seen something different that related to the floors, not just the core.
That's correct, the orange structure that is being assembled to provide a safety screen for the forming/pouring of the floor levels, not the core.

[U/C] Re: 269 North Terrace | 118m | 36 Levels | Student accommodation

The reality doesn't appear to reflect the renders. The renders actually look really good. This is so far early into the construction phase to compare current state to renders is a touch premature. In terms of what we can see from the curvature of the untreated pillars it feels that what has been pr...

Great shots Andy! The space is definitely coming together well!

As an aside, is that orange core numbering I can see on the North Terrace student tower across the road?

From today.
Are they putting in pre-cast concrete slabs for each floor?
They look like quick form floor plates for slab pours. The same system was used on Realm.

Is that brown finishing the same that we see on the convention centre?
I believe it matches the southern stand entrance area.

Yes, matching these up with the renders, it appears these will be the external columns. Yep, but painted. These are raw concrete. From memory, they'll be using this product, the effect of which remains to be seen: https://nawkaw.com.au/applications/architectural-finishes/ I think Nawkaw is being us...
