That’s a very old render. Before even the last hotel proposal. (See page 1).
You wonder why they still have it on their website!
Erm, it's an architectural firms website, what do you want them to have on their, floral arrangements?
It's a nice looking design, maybe they've got it up there still to showcase their firms capabilities?

From Axiom's results announcment today:
CURRIE ST, ADELAIDE CBD
The Company, in conjunction with its Joint Venture partner, has been developing an exciting scheme for it’s
development site in the heart of the Adelaide CBD at 62 Currie Street. Following an extensive design competition the
Group elected to work with national architecture firm Hames Sharley on the mixed-use project, which is likely to
incorporate commercial office, retail and hotel uses. Given the strong interest received from both national and
international hotel operators for a new “lifestyle/millennial” hotel for Adelaide, the Group conducted an international
operator search for qualified and appropriate hotel operators to anchor this component of the development and will
formally engage the selected operator subsequent to year end.
This is probably just an early concept.

Was hoping for something taller for the location, but even something that height will add to Currie Street really feeling different in a few years.

So the art deco façade is going. I thought they would include that, like the previous design did.
cheers,

Hoping that's not the design. Looks like it was designed in the early 70s and has finally come to light today. What is with developers and Concrete framed square windows?

Those round windows facing horizontally towards the trees below them look like magnifying glasses that will set fire to anything in their path. In fact, all in all, it looks about as appealing as an incinerator on a hot summers day.

Given they don’t skimp on finishing this may be quite a bold statement.

One thing I often wonder is why all these new proposals look dated? We see great examples of buildings that are not tall, yet have real forward modern finishes in other capitals. Why are most developments here so cheap?

Awful design. Very dated... and how thin is the recessed part of the top third of the buidling? Bet you also the western side is all blank wall.

I'll stick my hand up to be the contrarian — I prefer this over any of the past proposals. The windows appear to be set back, if they get the detailing and finishing of the materials (concrete? stone?) right it could work quite nicely.

Yeah, shit comparison. That building has aged well. That said, I'm with HiTouch. I hate this proposal; each proposal has gradually gotten worse...

Yet more rubbish design wise and the locals eat it up, apparently they don't know any better after decades of suffering with between zero change and rubbish being built.
