[COM] Re: #Proposed: City Central Tower 8 17 Levels

17 levels is a disappointment? Shows how much we've been spoilt these last few years! I don't think it's necessarily the height many are dissapointed with, but mainly the height in relation to the prime location... with many other similar-sized buildings around, the development's going to blend int...

[CAN] Re: #Proposed: 105 Waymouth St, 14 lvls

I like everything except for the golden "pods" sticking out along the left side (according to that render). Why do they feel compelled to do this? Seems kind of tacky, almost gimmicky and not really necessary... but I guess beauty's in the eye of the beholder (see: divided opinion over the Commonwea...

[APP] Re: #Proposed: 88 O'Connell St (Le Cornu Site) - 6 lvls

Looking very slick from all those renders. This development would fit in very nicely (maybe even encouraging a few other developments nearby), and certainly isn't too high, so I don't see why people are still complaining and/or it just can't go ahead. Fingers crossed as usual!

[CAN] Re: #Proposed : 123m 31 Level Office Tower 20 - 22 Currie St

Wait a minute, I thought the building was previously approved taking into consideration the demolition that was going to be involved. But now, with the amended proposal, suddenly this becomes an issue enough not to approve it again. I'm not too surprised about the decision, knowing the reputation of...

[CAN] Re: #Approved : 123m 31 Level Office Tower 20 - 22 Currie St

Well it's pretty much already been approved... there are just a few small changes made to the proposal (that doesn't affect the height - something that seems a contentious point with many developments around Adelaide). So yeah, hopefully they'll make a future landmark even better!

[CAN] Re: #Approved : 123m 31 Level Office Tower 20 - 22 Currie St

Amazing indeed. Might not be the biggest building, but considering the Adelaide skyline, the striking glass design is going to stick out nicely. Also, I took the last Octagon construction photo from its corresponding topic, and filled in roughly the area that 20-22 Currie Street is going to occupy. ...

[CAN] Re: #Approved : 123m 31 Level Office Tower 20 - 22 Currie St

It's going to be one hell of a building, that's for sure. Fixed. :wink: Seriously though, whether it's more floors or bigger floorspace, bigger buildings and any extra development is good for Adelaide... although of course, I still eagerly wait for more 100m+ proposals to start springing up. Hopefu...

Maybe this building has just become incredibly photogenic towards it's completion, but you guys have taken some great pictures from different angles. Here's a picture I took on New Years Eve, looking East from where Gouger Street meets Victoria Square. http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v47/TendoGame...

[COM] Re: #Proposed: 421 - 429 King William St - Office Tower

I always kind of thought that building (Optus) would be much taller than 14 levels... I guess it gives that impression with no other high-rise buildings nearby.

[COM] Re: 140 North Terrace 2x18 levels - 53m

That looks pretty slick. Could have been taller, but considering there's two conjoined buildings of equal height in the project... should look pretty modern and elegant when completed, and bulk up that (fairly central) area pretty nicely.

Am I the only one who thinks CC1 would probably look better without the spire? It sees kind of... awkwardly positioned, tacked on at the last minute. Regarding CC2, it's good enough considering the location, I suppose. Would have preferred it without the pods and visible concrete though. Just look h...

[CAN] Re: #Proposed: Cnr Gouger/West Terrace, 8lv $20m

Well, this seems like a typical Adelaide move. I mean, overshadowing? Being in the CBD, maybe those other properties shouldn't even be there, or at least the people should realise its reasonable for buildings to go up at any time. I know it hasn't been completely denied, but would this kind of thing...

[COM] Re: #U/C : Thomson Playford Building (Gouger St) - 8lvl

Gotta love how the slightly exaggerated perspective of the render makes it appear taller than it actually is. :lol: Will still be a good addition to that area nonetheless, especially with the Coglin Street building right beside it. Wouldn't really call them "towers" though... isn't that title usuall...
