None of your explanation. Just the madness and miscommunication in the entire thread up to now.
Ah, I get you. Yes, it's an 'interesting' thread!

Cant speak for the railway side , but i think the North Tce side is looking even better now they are nearly completion and have uncovered all the different tones of yellow throughout the building and facade. Will look interesting lit up at night.

Coming in with the train at night, this building looks awesome all lit up. Hopefully they keep them on once the building opens.

The North Tce street level is complete and ready for use, all the temporary fencing has been removed. The light blue panelling follows the slope of the escalators. Pictures Sunday 19 Feb 17.

I don't care who it is, someone (the government, ACC or Uni Adelaide) need to plant some trees and vegetation along that street frontage and perhaps consider something more sightly than a bitumen footpath, it makes the area look so bland; both in person and in pictures...

Agreed.
Pavers have been used all along the streetscape in front of the New RAH but turns to ugly bitumen once in front of the SAHMRI. Then gets even worse in front of the Convention Centre where all the concrete pavers are cracked and lifting.
SA gov or ACC need to pull their finger out on this one.
A real let down for the area.

What ever happened to the North Terrace upgrade project? After the last stage was completed at Prince Henry Gardens, work was supposed to move on to the area of parliament house up to Station Place. The quality and design of the streetscape in front of the universities, gallery and museum should be continued terrace-to-terrace, as befits the aspirations we have for it to be our 'cultural boulevard'.

As far as I know, that project was only for the KWS to Frome Street section, I don't remember anything regarding other sections.

The council has funded $5m to upgrade the Frome Street to Botanic Gardens section, which will happen within the next year or so in tandem with the tram extension.

Open today!
Looks impressive.
The biomedical, health, science, research precinct grows and, with it, Adelaide's reputation and appeal to attract the best and brightest in this field.
The new 14-storey state-of-the-art @UniofAdelaide building will house 1600 students & 400 researchers #biomedcity… https://t.co/s3ycQcxDsM

via @TheLeadSA

State of the art.
The AHMS building has been designed to transform the way students learn, enhance the student experience and prepare future health care leaders for professional practice.
....taking our programs and research into the future with state of the art facilities, the incorporation of new teaching styles and the latest technologies.

The facility will support Medicine, Nursing and Dentistry students and University of Adelaide Health Sciences researchers. Located in the South Australian Health and Biomedical Precinct (SAHBP), its integration with the new Royal Adelaide Hospital (nRAH) and South Australian Health and Medical Research Institute (SAHMRI), will continue to build on more than 130 years of University of Adelaide partnership with the RAH.

The design of the building reflects a new direction for infrastructure development to complement the needs of tomorrow’s health sciences education. The design introduces a diversity of new generation spaces ....

Saw this for the first time all lit up tonight and it looked much better than in daylight! Hopefully someone with can capture it at night with a decent camera.

Agreed with both of you, but these sorts of works are probably best left until after construction of the buildings has finished. It would have all needed to be redone afterwards otherwise.

On the note of pavers, I wish the whole city in terms of streetscape had the feel of near uni sa on west Hinley st, nice pavers and trees

Isnt there special funding for keeping North Terrace's streetscape picturesque with new pavement, etc due to it being a "cultural hub" or is that just restricted to east of KW Street?

If the parklands are so important why dont they put it to a vote state wide? Or are they afraid the majority will back this hotel..

I wouldn't mind betting this will be done after the UniSA building is finished. Seems more logical to do the whole stretch at once. Give it a few months...

These buildings look absolutely awesome - such an improvement to this area, really looks like you're entering a big city when coming in from the West.

Hello, first time poster, semi-long time lurker.

When I've walked past the building, I've been struck at how imposing it is. The pillars and the wall of glass really looms above you. Even though it's 20+ smaller than Telstra and Genfell, this one feels taller. It has a real strong presence.
