I think the white paint is an afterthought and makes it look cheap

Check the first page of this thread, those elements are white in the render of the building.
At the time I think most of us would have assumed it was going to be some clean white concrete, but looking at how they've cheaped out on materials for the rest of the tower it's quite likely the plan all along was to be painted.
Though not the greatest building I thought it passable up to now but that finish is criminal
I concur the white stripes make it look marginally better.
I'm assuming that the student tower next door at 118NT will commence construction once this has finished, because from one of Brad's photos, it looks like the crane passes over the adjoining site currently. Would make sense that there would be a wait to avoid any construction conflicts. Having said that I would think also 118NT would use luffer cranes, not a hammerhead.

I shot this video earlier today at the Langman Reserve Lookout in Burnside, which is a superb location for any shots/documentation of the changing city skyline, but in this case I have mainly focused on Adelaidean and Realm. (11/1/2020)
