Love the curves, the finished product will look great and bring a whole new hub of activity and interest but can't help but feel it's a lost opportunity in terms of an iconic tower in this space, imagine that building but all the way up to the 120m - 140m mark, to then be complimented by the Walker tower (if and whenever that goes ahead).

Would take focus away from the dated Intercontinental which fronts our postcards, news weather bulletins and even this sites banner image haha
Yeah, and just, you know, wash out the Festival Theatre as well. The height on this is fine as is.

I agree, when you consider that James Packer is spending a lazy $2 billion on Crown Sydney, the $300 million which Skycity are spending here can be defined as 'pocket money'.

$330 million is still a serious amount of cash. And correct me if i'm wrong, but i'm pretty sure it's the single largest private investment in Adelaide's history.

That'd be the Myer Centre, wouldn't it?

Holdfast Shores would be high on the list aswell.

Regardless of the amount, we would have to be happy that something is finally moving here. The current casino is actually an embarrassment more befitting a regional town pokies parlour than a capital city. Are the any details regarding the existing layout with this? Hopefully some decent refurb goes in to the gaming floors and bars. Given the captive market that literally pours out of the Adelaide Oval in football season, it surely can afford to up its game.
