wow this one really is shooting up, and deservedly so it looks great! Really did deserve to have kept its initial height, if only it had been proposed later it might have been fortunate enough to receive an increase rather than decrease :? Does anyone know the official height? It's been approximate for a long time!

Hmmm..... I was expecting that building to look black and bright orange - not grey and dull red! :(
cheers,

Strange that they show up red in the photos. In real life, they look copper.

I like those red panels, finally we have a building with some design and detail, i'm happy that it is not just bare glass and concrete.

These alucobond panels are designed to change colour with the direction of light and viewing angle.
They range from a deep red through copper to bright orange depending on the time of day and the angle viewed from...so you're all right!

I love this one, it's simple and yet stands out as unique in that section of the city, the panelling is also highly innovative for Adelaide!

Forget the new building - what on earth is that hideous abomination next door? Does it have some kind of disease?

Omi, that building is the home of what was Australian Central Credit Union - now merged with another CU and called called People's Choice Credit Union, I believe. At least that's who was in the building the last time I went there, a couple of years ago, to pick up Community Raffle tickets.
