Great pic Norman, you can see the brackets for the signage on the top levels (south eastern corner) too.
Whats going on with the windows on the same corner levels below?
Think of it as an enclosed balcony. Those windows can be opened via shutter, allowing an indoor/outdoor space.

[U/C] Re: New Calvary Hospital | 60m | 12 lvls | Cnr Angas/Pulteney

I'm pretty sure the Calvary site, plus others across the eastern CBD that are owned by the hospital are all going for sale for development. It's a huge corridor that is on offer, and with some sections falling under the no prescribed height limit zone, we could see more 130m+ proposals.

To gauge the final height, the current tower proper section, not including the podium, if you add that on top of what exists, you’ll be close.

The final height will be close to the current height of the crane. There’ll definitely have to be more of a crane rise before topping out.

It's going to look more like a miss matched mess when we start getting random blind heights when residents move in. I appreciate the tower will be a great living space, but apart from height it offers zero to the skyline.

First core rise in a while occurred today. They must have needed a transfer slab for the transition from hotel to apartment floors.

Until you notice the "design f'aw" now houses the Uni Lodge" branding, and it was deliberate all along....

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

Looking great! Wishful thinking, but I wish the developer decided to add on a few extra floors to make this building our new tallest. The Adelaidean building does not seem worthy of such a prestigious title. I completely agree. The adjacent student development next to Adelaidean should remove some ...

You seem surprised Pikey? Considering the developer and his previous efforts in Adelaide, the budget compared to the scale of the development and as rev mentioned, the renders, I'm not sure how anyone could have pinned hope on this being anything half decent. I was doubtful since day one. I guess I...

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

I had to see it for myself today. This development is spectacular and should set the bar for developments in Adelaide moving forward. Note the top climbing collar and support bracket on the crane. I'd suggest a decent height increase is not far off. http://i63.tinypic.com/33f3mvd.jpg http://i64.tiny...

The more this grows, the more underwhelming I find it. Basic design let down by low quality materials. Compared to Realm, this feels budget. I took a heap of shots from different angles to see if I could find any redeeming features. http://i66.tinypic.com/dyajd4.jpg http://i67.tinypic.com/2h6ul48.jp...
