I like how when developers can't get their way in the CBD, they build just outside. I'd laugh so hard if one of them sent in a proposal to build a 105m building on Little Grenfell St in Hackney :) I know it probably wouldn't happen but I can imagine the ACCs face :P

There are floorplans and additional renders on RealEstate.com.au if people are interested.

Looks like this has received the usual "dumb down/reduce in height" akin to most Adelaide proposals. From 7 stories to 5.

Ok so I've jumped to conclusions here, but was the developer not confident of a 7 level building or did the negativity from the council influence this?

The cross-sections in images 9 & 10 of the floorplans suggest another possibility - they make a point of showing that the reduced height means the top floor of the adjacent building still has views to the south.

Opportunity is missed by most people because it is dressed in overalls and looks like work.
