[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 ...

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

The top of the building is essentially at the RTCC, so I'm not sure how they'll complete the building without the crane breaching the RTCC. Would generally need 15-20m clearance between top of crane and top of building (for a hammerhead). Either they have a magic way of constructing the top of the b...

[APP] Re: 75-79 King William Street | 132m | 39 Levels | Mixed

It's more because the CBD happens to be right under an emergency flight path from Adelaide Airport. The CBD does not otherwise impact Adelaide Airport business. It is more complex than any discussion on this forum. I have spent the last 18 months working through the airspace requirements in relatio...

Time the RTCC and PANS-OPS gets reviewed and amended. Remember the old Hong Kong Airport. Our Airport is no where near the CBD. Also the runway lines up with North Adelaide NOT Adelaide CBD. Hardly a skyscraper in North Adelaide. If the CBD height was a problem at Adelaide Airport - they should hav...

I'm interested in one aspect of this proposal: the proposed roof height is at RL176.6m AHD but the crane height application is for only RL178.8m AHD. So only 2.2m between top of roof and top of crane. The lowest hammerhead I'm aware of would need at least 16m between top of roof and top of crane. Do...

That said, it would be nice to see something noticeably bigger than Westpac proposed. What happened to "the vision formerly known as DOMINATOR 1"? I'm hopeful that CDJ would let us know if the project was dead, apparently it was in "pre-lodgement" in July last year. SA1 (as it is now known) is stil...

[U/C] Re: Festival Plaza Redevelopment | $800 million

Obviously the basement engineers have considered ground water. The water table is at around B4 level, so one storey up from the base. The perimeter wall is relatively watertight and keyed into sandstone. Underslab drainage at B5 relieves pressure from any water which does manage to seep under the wa...

Retention piling for Festival basement commenced today as planned. Excuse my stupidity but this is piling for the tower? It's the piling which will form the retaining wall for the new basement under the tower. There is a huge 5-level carpark to be constructed first before the tower will move up abo...

I really don't think the Swiss Cheese building is that bad. For everyone I speak to who hates it, I can usually find someone else who quite likes it. Dwell on the other hand is definitely a disgrace. It only pisses me off even more knowing that they destroyed an old factory with so much history and...
