But at-least the Stamford is old enough that it's probably due for some kind of a makeover. Unfortunately with a lot of the aforementioned buildings, they're mostly new and won't need a re-treatment for some time. I actually find it strange that they gave 1 KWS a facelift when it was probably one of those rare examples where a building is timeless and it materials don't need to be covered up or replaced...


1 KW -the old AMP? That is a tragedy. It should have been heritage listed. The makeover was cheap, tacky and will age badly. By all means, refurb the interior, but the façade was timeless, and such a landmark building from a time when "skyscrapers" were few and far between. Yes, there have been some mistakes on North Terrace, but we should now promote North terrace as a strip of real merit. While the student tower is sort of ok, its no stunner.
