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

The jury's out on this one in my opinion but at the least it's likely to be quite imposing. A few pics from today Great photos, really does put it in some sort of perspective, I've used the word "dominate" to describe this before and still believe so. Even with the student building alongside, if it...

Re: News & Discussion: Trams

The next tram service extension needs to be big enough to absorb the costs associated with a new/expanded depot and more vehicles to operate it. Those costs are too much to be absorbed in a plan to just provide a daily/peak hour service to the existing Elder Park stop. If the King William Road brid...

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

I think it’s safe to say this will be stunning. Anyone know if you can find the penthouse floor plans somewhere? I’d love to have a look. Hope this pic comes through correctly So if this is the penthouse floor 38.01 and 38.02 and the penthouses are 2 floors, that get us to level 39. So where is the...

From Rundle Mall Great photo. This is really going to standout, they are putting in the scaffolding for the 14th floor and the slider is at the 16th. also it is showing the shape of the building starting to appear. This one will have prominence due to location and hopefully design, the Adelaidean I...

with the lighter colour panels in the glass against the dark, will this building look like the godzilla version of Grenfell Tower (black stump)?

My how things change, 1911, Chalmers Church, now Scotts Church. At the back of the cottage row are the back yards that exit on to Austin Street. Immediately to the left of the shop front called H. L. VOSZ is a shed which becomes the Richmond Hotel and the building to the left of that between the she...

The more I see of this building, the less it is grabbing my imagination, I am hopeful the finished product does something, at the moment I see nothing exciting.

Great photo Ben, I'm assuming that's taken from the Santos building on Flinders Street? Also what is that UFO above the Adelaidean? I'll go with Shuz on the "Flinders Street" however I'll punt for the western end of the Hender building (81 Flinders), which floor? well that is another puzzler. And a...

there has been another core rise, the door gap just under the slider is the 13th floor, so the slider is in position for the pouring of the 14th floor.

More yellowy I’d say but it was in shade. Might be different in sun light. I’m worried about the rust on this in a few years time. the facade is supposed to be powder coated stainless steel. I was reading somewhere, forgot where, so sorry no reference doco. sorry my mistake, it said "The gold scree...

There has been a core rise, the "complete view of the top door" is the 11th floor door, the 10th floor scaffolding is mostly complete, still some gaps on the north west corner.

At Realm today and saw these, are they part of the crane and so it can climb?
I might be answering my own question here, but are they part of the boom? and now the podium is finished they don't need as much reach on the boom?
