Yes! I totally agree. Whenever we go past the Conservatory, I look up at it and I say to myself: "My god, this looks so much like the render!" which comes as a welcome change to not getting what we originally thought. For example, I don't know if it's just me, but I think that the Aurora on Pirie won't fit its renders. I don't know why, maybe it's the fact that the green glass is so much more different to the blue-ish one that they showed in the renders... :? Anyways, once again, the Conservatory has come up really well, let's hope that the Crowne Plaza and the Apartment building next to it also come up as promised! Well Done... Urban Construct is it? :?: :?
Not Urban Construct. The Hines group are behind these projects.

Just to make it crystal clear, the Hines Group is behind COH and the 20HS development. Urban Construct is behind Aurora.

:oops: :oops: Whoops! My mistake :)
I take back many of the things I said before 2010; particularly my anti-Rann rants. While I still maintain some of said opinions, I feel I could have been less arrogant. I also apologise to people I offended; while knowing I can't fully take much back. :)

So THAT'S what he looks like - lot better that just bunches of words! You'd all be stunned if I appeared in a pic. - breaking the mould of conceptions of so called 'oldies'. Congrats mate anyway on getting involved in such a vid.

:(

Shall we call this one complete? Here's a trip down memory lane, thanks to the photo contributions of all of us!

We first heard of this building way back in 2005, with a totally different render which seems to have fallen off the face of the Internet. :( RAA moved into their current tenancy on Hindmarsh Sq and this site sat idle for a while.

Then the site sat idle for a while as an eyesore of gravel and temporary fencing. This thread fell idle too...
