Would anyone be able to guess what height this is currently at? Think this will be very prominent when at full height

I think like Vue, when at sunset in full shade the glass will look great, but in day light it will look pretty average. Its OK but no masterpiece by any means.

I'm waiting until it's finished to make a judgement. It's way too early.

Perhaps a little early but I'm gradually liking this less and less with every new pane of glass that goes on. Would be right at home on the City Central block......

The floor plates that over hang are really ugly. Are they just going to stay that raw concrete colour?

I actually don’t mind those over hanging floor plates.

The jury's out on this one in my opinion but at the least it's likely to be quite imposing. A few pics from today
Great photos, really does put it in some sort of perspective, I've used the word "dominate" to describe this before and still believe so. Even with the student building alongside, if it ever gets off the ground - pun intended, :!: the new "black stump" will be a focal point for the eyes. I think the Realm will be more attractive but the sheer size and contrast of this one will be what makes it stand out.

I feel the lighter blue/green panels really cheapen the overall look. They look hidden behind the glass like an after thought. They either needed to be in a intestine glass facade or white to match other cladding elements to the design.

I wonder if they're gonna have some bar at the stop with toilets that have a view, like Melbourne's Sofitel

This tower needs the student development next door to balance it out. The vertical lines of the student tower, narrow shape and tapering design will offset the bulk of Adelaidean.

I still feel the facade on this tower is a massive let down. It looks cheap. Very disappointing.

From last night. Dusk is definitely the most flattering time of day for this facade.

What’s going on with that south east corner of the building. That bit where the glazing comes out more and covers the floor plates, is the whole building going to be covered like that?

It’s only the podium from what I can remember.
The images make this look great. Dusk is a very flattering angle.
My fears are that it will turn out like Vue where most of the time it looks pretty dark and average yet from some angles at some time of the day it actually looks okay.
