Didn’t get a photo but this also looks really impressive on our skyline from the airport 👌🏻 Just need something built between this and Vue to complete the whole skyline.

[PRO] Re: 98-100 North Terrace | 52m | 14 Levels | Quest Hotel

There seriously needs to be more strict rules when it comes to building in Adelaide so rubbish uninspiring designs like this don’t get built. I’d rather what is there now than have to live with this ugly box for the next 75 years. Why can’t we get more buildings like Realm which actually have some a...

[PRO] Re: 135 Aldinga Beach Road, Aldinga | ~18m | 6 Lvls | Mixed Use

This is complete BS, Why the F##k are they building apartments in Aldinga. Seriously Adelaide needs to stop urban sprawl, this is the last thing we need. Aldinga was once such a beautiful little country town away from the suburbs, now with the help of all the development there it is quickly turning ...

Can they knock down its neighbour and build something new there as well?
Unfortunately that ugly box tower next door is all apartments so it would be a massive task of paying every tenant for their apartment before you could do anything with it.

Re: Crane Counter: CBD 15 | Metro 2 | Total 17

So basically if all goes to plan, we will have 6 buildings above 100m tall under construction, I don’t think has ever happened in the history of Adelaide, especially since we only currently have 3 buildings over 100m. This is brilliant news for Adelaide and I could say I’m mildly excited 👌🏻

Re: News & Discussion: Trams

How bloody sad. So disappointed, I was really hoping I could take the tram from the city to work in North Adelaide... but not anymore, I guess I’ll just have to keep walking :(
So glad they are spending $30 million on the right hand turn though.... Said no one ever

Advertising hoarding gone and a frame is being placed around it - not sure if that is part of the dismantling process, but photo below anyways.
There is some sort of framing at the top of the tower in the original renders, maybe this is the start of that?

I actually really like this building. I know a lot of you think it’s ugly as s**t but I think if it were painted white it would do a world of difference. For example there is a student accommodation building in India that is very similar but looks so nice. https://www.archdaily.com/883227/stacked-st...

It’s crazy how much of an impact this building will have on our city. You can already see the crane when coming into the city via the train, imagine when it’s at full height.

Re: Riverside Precinct

Well it looks like this vision has become a reality with the new pop up Urban Beach on this exact site. Really happy about this, I just hope it's successful and helps push forward a more developed and permanent structure.

My friends family owns the for work company for this building and he works on it daily. He was telling me that it should reach its full height by September 2016. Seems like quite a long time to me when you look at buildings like Vue and the office building on king will by dash architects.
