114m to the top of the white antenna / spire. 103m to the top of the LMR.

It's definitely 114m. The communications antenna that was added in the early 2000s was deemed by the CTBH to be structural and was counted in the overall height.

Really? You can't even see it? I think we're clutching at straws to count an antenna as structural.

Freedom Tower? Willis Tower? Centrepoint Tower?

They all have antennae which are structural.

Completely right. The height to the tip of the building is 114m, however the antenna is not considered part of the structure. It is not a spire, but more like a flagpole or lightning rod.

Hi guys.

Not sure where this really belongs, so I decided here would be a good spot, what with the list of developments proposed and UC. Feel free to move it if it isn't.

With the glut of proposals currently underway in Adelaide, I decided I wanted to see their skyline impact together, so I put them together in Sketchup and imported them to Google Earth. They're just blank boxes so they're a bit ugly and inaccurate, but they give a good idea of the skyline impact of many new developments. For now, I've only focused on proposals that have a render, although I've added a few that I believe are unlikely to go ahead. Obviously not everything will be built, but here's what Adelaide might look like in 2020:

I made a few assumptions on height, such as the Festival Plaza one which we only know is 24 storeys. What interests me most (besides the new tallest) is how dense the western part of the city will become. Let me know if you guys want some different angles.

Amazing work slenderman and many thanks! Even allowing as you say for the ones that won't be built, there will be some very impressive shots of enhanced density and street level vistas available within a few years - not to mention of course the change wrought by a potential new tallest 8)

Is there an equivalent of the Adelaide interactive map of CBD development for Melbourne and Sydney?

https://urban.melbourne

That's the Melbourne equivalent of Sensational Adelaide. They've got a very cool interactive map and project database on there.

Wow that's a really cool site. I'd love to see us develop into something like that.

Future skyline update time.

I've taken some screenshots near where developments since my previous post on this topic came from. The western and southern CBD is where the bulk of the current crop of proposals are located. Again, some assumptions made on height, and I scrapped a few developments that almost certainly won't occur (Gawler Chambers, 261 Pulteney).

1-8 North Terrace:
Image

Adelaide Casino (not sure about the exact height so estimated based on the InterContinental. Urbanest proposal near Eclipse also visible in background.
Image

West Franklin. This part of the western CBD should become our next little cluster.
Image

Calvary Hospital. In general the shape of the skyline from the east doesn't change a whole lot.
Image

Trims Site's impact on the southern CBD. I'd say the gap will be closed assuming both this and all of New Mayfield goes ahead.
Image

General southern CBD shot.
Image

This one's a little hard to see, but it shows just how different the skyline may look in a few years.
Image

Bonus North Adelaide shot. Can't be bothered doing the rest of metropolitan Adelaide though.
