The pre-rendered brick stuff is pretty ugly on this thing.

Nice picture Shuz, but y u no resize it before uploading?

Can't say I see this one turning out particularly well. My (not very) bold early prediction is that this will probably go down as one of the uglier highrises built in Adelaide this decade. Happy to be proven wrong however.

Is this building L-shaped? I originally thought it had a square footprint, but judging by the photos and the newest Nearmap, it appears that this one is actually L-shaped, with the crane sitting behind the building, outside the footprint of this building.

That considered, I wonder if the plan is to put in a carbon-copy (but perhaps slightly taller like Urbanest on North Terrace) second stage rotated 180 degrees on the empty land behind/next to this site?

Shuz's picture resized. hope you don't mind Shuz. Yes this building is L shaped -being wider at the front facing Waymouth St. also the dark bits are 1 window wider in both Waymouth St and the side street compared to the pale brown bits.

I upload my phone pictures to my computer and use a program called Paint to resize and rotate: usually for landscape pictures I need reduce the size to 30% of original and down to 20 % for portrait size pictures.pictures.

I just directly upload it as an attachment from my phone. That's probably why they're coming out funny.

FInal thing will be nothing alike imo.

That has a nice finish and the windows draw the eye up the building. This one I expect to be a boring concrete facade and the windows make it look squat.

Well, this is pretty uninviting to look at. The good news is there's only 12 more floors to go, and I guess the western wall isn't completely blank like other developments. I'd personally love to have a first floor apartment here with a western view of the City Collision Centre roof.

Isn't that an odd planning flaw that the western wall has windows right up to the boundry? What will happen when city crash repairs is redeveloped? The windows get plastered over?

It'd be down to the fact the perimeter wall is formed concrete with recessed glass. I'm sure there is some loophole they have used, the developer may already won the title for the adjoining property?
