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

All right hawkeyes, past there this morning and the "yellow frame" that has been on the south face between the balconies has gone. Does this mean there is some sort of design change from this point upward? what was its purpose? I'm not even sure when it was removed. cheers That was a frame for the ...

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

The fact that the core is split into two sections, makes me wonder if there'll be a new slip form added for the smaller section. I believe the top two offset floors have lift access... I'll need to go back and find the plans on the DA. Wouldn't that make it three sections? They already shrank the c...

Plus looking at Ben's shot above, the floor plates look like they're at level 32, so there definitely has to be more height to either the core, or the top two offset floors aren't serviced by the core proper....?

I believe this is temporary infrastructure that can be repurposed elsewhere in the greater Memorial drive upgrade zone.

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.

Great shots EBG!

This tower is so far and away the best high rise development we've ever had in this city. I hope it raises the benchmark and sets the example with the DAC as to what should be achieved in tower design moving forward.

Signage has been removed from the core.
Could be in preparation for the final core reconfigure for the top two levels plus plant room. These floors are offset compared to the plates below.

Looks like another core rise has occurred. The final crane jump (which is meant to be a big one) shouldn't be too far off.

...I'm interested to see how they build on top of the carpark...
That's the beauty of building with a steel frame.

Cheers
And the carpark was engineered and built with the intention of adding an office above it originally.

Surely tower cranes will be needed for the construction part.
I seem to recall five being mentioned. It's a bloody huge site!!!

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

From the limited info that I have, there is a three month exception here. There is more height to go on this crane, the current crane height is close to the final finished height of the tower. So Kyren have been granted a 3-month permit to lift the RTCC? I've seen the crane permits for other sites ...
