IMO this sucks big time. Kinda thought this location being near the east end might have been a bit higher quality

Agreed. it reminds me a little bit of Bohem, which is definitely not a compliment.

[APP] Re: 203 North Terrace | 109m | 33 levels | Student Accom

Besides trying to fulfill an incredibly restricted budget, the only other thing I can think of is that they were trying to go for the faux sandstone look to compliment the heritage? Big fail on that one and regardless of the intent it looks shit. The nicest thing I have to say about it is that I dis...

It also looks pretty good when viewed from the other side of the river. Ideally I'd love to get rid of buildings like the Stamford Plaza and (to a lesser extent) the Intercontinental, but if not then at least this building offers a bit of a contrast to them.

Possibly, but personally I think the contrast would work very well. Perhaps not so much with the residents though.

Did anyone see the alternate JPE design? I don't mind the approved plan, but I reckon the alternative would have looked great.

Definitely should have been another 10+ levels. Not on my river torrens. We don't want adelaide looking like this dogs breakfast : What's wrong with this? Looks great Maybe its the filthy looking river, or maybe its the over development of the riverbank that ghs alludes to. Either way its never don...

Good to hear they'll keep the heritage in tact.

Praying for 140m.
Some of it anyway. I am assuming based on this little snippet that the original hotel fronting Franklin Street will go.

Not sure of the inside, but they butchered the outside pretty badly. I am fairly certain the verandah was still intact before they started construction.

It sounds like they have gotten rid of pretty much the only redeeming feature- too bad they didn't reduce it by another 50 metres.

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

I suspect I might be in an overwhelming minority here, but I actually prefer Adelaidean to Realm. I like the treatment of the balconies a lot better, and as I said in an earlier post when viewed from a distance (ie North Adelaide looking back at the city) it looks fantastic. Both Adelaidean and Real...

[APP] Re: 203 North Terrace | 73m | 19 levels | Mixed Use

Alterations and additions to a State Heritage Place and a multistorey student accommodation tower. And there it is. No surprise really. the thing with these types of building is they have almost always been of poor design and cater to a large amount of people in a small space who are there temporar...

Nice photos. I'm not the biggest fan of Adelaidean once you are up close, but when viewed form a distance I think it looks great.

Re: News & Developments: Port Adelaide

Photos from adelaidenow show that demolition of the structure started at about 8:30am today. IMO a wasted opportunity to create something unique and draw in visitors. It is an interesting one. If I was relying solely on the photos of the Shed that get shown online then I would probably be of the vi...

[SWP] Re: Lot 14 (Old RAH Site)

Adelaide has some great modernist (I guess this one is deco?) and brutalist buildings, which sadly are a bit unappreciated compared to the 19th century ones. Funny you should say so, as the ABC has just posted an article about that very fact. Good read: 'Adelaide's brutalist architecture celebrated...

[COM] Re: GPO Exchange | 85m | 22 Levels | Office

Yep, agreed. About 15-20 metres more height and a tad less bulk and this would be improved immensely. Even so, I like it and as I said a while back- we dodged a bullet by not going with any of those alternative design concepts.
