Has anybody seen any images with the top of the Walker Tower shown?, it always seems to be cut off to not overwhelm the space - just co-incidence I guess? :wink:
It’ll be a similar height to the Intercontinental

It will be appreciably taller by approx 20m. Check the facebook link, the fly thru illustrates this

Yes, and including the bottom 5 levels of structure for the office tower (hence the large core and some of the columns being large ones).

This image from the Walker Corp. Instagram is the only one I've seen of the new design featuring the full tower: https://www.instagram.com/p/B7jwjTSl5fe ... _copy_link

There's not many images showing the tower, since there's a lot of uncertainty about if and when it's going to go ahead.

It would be nice to see a more panoramic view that shows the tower, perhaps from the riverbank footbridge, to see how it'll look against its surrounds. The full height shot that Walker doesn't really compare the tower to anything.

It is going ahead. They haven't built the footings and 5 levels of core and columns just for fun.

Hi CDJ, is the tower core the large structure covered in scaffolding to the left hand side of Stryker's image? Cheers!

Yeah that is encouraging.
However there doesn't appear to have been any announced pre-commitments thus far. No doubt some space will be filled by SA pollies. But its a massive amount of space to fill in the post covid environment.....

Banks are reducing space interstate and BHP has recently moved into Franklin St. The SA gov has also recently committed to taking space in the redevelopment of Planet nightclub on Pirie St, so where's the demand?
