It's actually quite nice to see how they're replicating the upper floors of Rundle Mall Plaza. It's about time we had some consistency of design in our city.

Hold your horses fellas. You need to have more of the facade for it to have some continuity in order to truly judge. It may look bad now, but it could yet turn out a total catastrophe.

It never had potential. It's nothing but a whole city block of dull glass boxes. The only consideration has been maximum lettable area. Sell the idea with a gloosy render, then ship in the cheapest glass you can find. Take photos at an acute angle on an overcast day, finished.

The site definitely had potential.
Im open to opinion, is the reason why these developments are getting through because of a lack of city architectural standards or architects on the DAC?

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..

A long distance view from the far southern end of Victoria Sq shows the GPO building amongst it neighbours. Picture 4/11/18.

What I find annoying is the building behind with the green glass windows, every one has their blinds set at different levels and office documents stuck up on the windows

Went past today, and IMO it really isn’t that bad, In fact it’s more likely than not going to be way better than ANZ House & Tower 8.

I have to laugh at this comment.

I work in the ANZ building behind (with the green glass windows).

We have been in this building since 2008.

The blinds have been an ongoing source of contention and bitter debate since that time due to the glare and people's differing sensitivity.

Hence, why the blinds look like a clusterf***.

Give it another 10 years, it will be the same.
*Looks at Dyson Airblade Factory* "I say we take off and nuke the entire site from orbit, it's the only way to be sure"

A close up view of the upper level windows - Simple yet neat.

This could have been so much better. Much more impressive. I don’t feel e should settle for ‘oh it’s nit as bad as DWELL, so it’s fine’. We’d be okay with a lot of crap otherwise.
