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

I had to see it for myself today. This development is spectacular and should set the bar for developments in Adelaide moving forward. Note the top climbing collar and support bracket on the crane. I'd suggest a decent height increase is not far off. That was quick. That collar was there Friday morn...

If the yellow turns out okay then this will be special. I think the yellow will be interesting, we saw a photo Pikey took with the facade in full sun and it looked very yellow. Also other photos show the yellow as a dull yellow, Both of these are my visions of gold covering pre and post refining. G...

Whatstheirname posted photos of yellow things being craned on 16May. I couldn’t see them on the crane, but the photo from the Footlocker has all that yellow framing. I’m wondering if this is what he photographed? And what it might be? Also looking at this go up from the mall, it is already overshado...

So this will top out over the next couple of weeks ?
I would think some months, it looks like it might be up at level 20 odd and I'm guessing they are headed for about 37 or so.

[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.
