Oooh first glazing brackets are on! Here's hoping it's a beautiful highly reflective gold!

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

Looking great! Wishful thinking, but I wish the developer decided to add on a few extra floors to make this building our new tallest. The Adelaidean building does not seem worthy of such a prestigious title. I completely agree. The adjacent student development next to Adelaidean should remove some ...

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

You seem surprised Pikey? Considering the developer and his previous efforts in Adelaide, the budget compared to the scale of the development and as rev mentioned, the renders, I'm not sure how anyone could have pinned hope on this being anything half decent. I was doubtful since day one. I guess I...

[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. http://i63.tinypic.com/33f3mvd.jpg http://i64.tiny...

The more this grows, the more underwhelming I find it. Basic design let down by low quality materials. Compared to Realm, this feels budget. I took a heap of shots from different angles to see if I could find any redeeming features. http://i66.tinypic.com/dyajd4.jpg http://i67.tinypic.com/2h6ul48.jp...

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

The more I see it, the more I like it. Looking really elegant with today's overcast conditions. The facade has reached full height on the rear, and glazing brackets are covering the core. http://i68.tinypic.com/347im2e.jpg http://i65.tinypic.com/2jafa7q.jpg http://i66.tinypic.com/33ngitf.jpg

Finishing touches. With today's gloomy skies, this looked spectacular. There's purple hues I hadn't seen before.

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

I hope the developers of Adelaidean are taking notice. THIS is how you treat the facade of a premier tower.

This already feels of such higher quality than Adelaidean. If only it was 50 or 60 levels instead. This deserves to be our tallest tower, not the cheap job down the road.

[U/C] Re: 260 Flinders Street | 78m/64m | 25/23 Levels | Mixed Use

Seems odd, I was of the mind they had positioned so it wouldn't need to be relocated to work on Stage 2, so disappointing to see it coming down with (apparently) no new base in place. Well, the current crane's proximity to what will soon be occupied apartments wouldn't work. It wouldn't be too plea...

From last night.
