It actually looks quite striking. I also believe the void floors will also have some feature lighting too.
That would make a huge difference and a bit of a standout at night.

Very deep eaves there. Not like the renders at all.

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

Very impressed by the design elements and attention to detail on the Austin Street facade, including the treatment of the old Assay House. Given that Austin Street is a very narrow service lane they could have paid minimal attention to the look and feel, and focus the glamour entirely on the arcade ...

Great shot Plasmatron. Actually gives the Intercontinental some scale and context too, making it less intrusive from that angle. Looking forward to seeing the casino hotel lit up at night too when completed.

I’m not usually critical of other opinions on this forum but as someone who has been to the AO at Melbourne Park twice in the past 3 years and two night sessions at the Adelaide International so far this year I have to question whether the posters above have actually a) watched any lower level ATP ...

[COM] Re: Memorial Drive upgrade

Once saw an international tennis event there some years back and being a poor student bought tickets in the far end bay in the southern stand. Struck me then what an absurd design MD was for centre court tennis. They had no qualms in selling expensive tickets for seats with a great view of everythin...

Yes understand that developers might choose a property manager but the development would not proceed without intense collaboration with the hotel chain. i.e. the hotelier would describe what their requirements are and it seems logical that one of those would be a distinctive exterior design which wo...

Curious that Crowne Plaza would want their name associated with such a mediocre offering.

[U/C] Re: Adelaide Oval Hotel

Someone’s been conned. There was much ado by the SMA claiming there would be absolutely no addition to the footprint, and that the hotel would be suspended from the current oval structure. So what are these multiple massive concrete ‘feet’ being erected directly outside of the original ‘footprint’? ...

Re: News & Developments: Port Adelaide

City of Adelaide has now completed its final voyage and is safely moored on its barge at Dock 2. Hoping that the proposed Dock 2 maritime village moves along now and foot access from the Port centre is opened up soon via the proposed footbridge across Dock 1.

Great tribute to the Riverbank stand. Hope they light it up at night to reflect the Oval lighting too. Would look great from the south bank and bridge.

Never really liked plonky Edwardian institutional architecture as a genre but now the trees are gone I’ll get the chance to enjoy it for years to come. The new landscaping better be bloody good.

What an eye-catcher this building is already - even more so when complete. Great precedent for future high-rise developments. :applause:
