Again excuse my ignorance on all this, but when tenders on a project are called, does that mean it’ll most likely go ahead?

Yes you would think so. It’s rare but there are times when the build cost comes in (far) above what has been budgeted/allowed for or above the achievable sale prices (ie I think I read this may have been one reason that Opus on Hutt St didn’t go ahead.)

I prefer the original podium as it better respected the lines of neighbouring Woodards House and had pleasing art deco-inspired articulation. Not overly moved either way though as this will ultimately be fairly inconspicuous (and it'd be nice to just see it finally built).

This new lattice design replicates to some extent the new student building being completed round the corner on Waymouth Street.

I think it would look better with the mix of the original podium levels with the lattice design above it.
