It looks horrible in person. I will post a photo in a moment that shows it. I was hoping the glass quality would be like the podium level below. It looks like plastic.

Huh? What am I looking at? That grey and white ... is the white a window protected? This looks so ... I’m at a loss.

The windows and cladding look like crap. I had bad vibes from the start.

What grinds my gears is that Perth gets a nice BHP Building and we get this. Adelaide deserves so much better.

As the late Patrick 27 would say, "Oh FFS"

Whaaa? I was under the impression that the frames were going to be some form of stone work, but it's just aluminium panels? What a fucking disappointment.

I know I'm stating the obvious here but that looks NOTHING like those renders. :wallbash:

To be fair, it actually looks like the panels are some kind of stone composite. But my concern is the matte effect and grey shade will probably result in it en masse looking like unfinished concrete.

The potential saving grace is the glazing looks to be more reflective than transparent. Basically this building could be mistaken for something built in the 70s or 80s.

The photo is deceiving, in person, they look metal similar to City Central Tower 8 but grey and they're in the shade so there's no shine to them. They might be some sort of plastic but they're definitely not stone.
