What a difference a gloomy overcast sky makes!

Great shots!

The more I see it, the more I feel this will be somewhat underwhelming. Imagine the reflectivity of the GPO development on this facade? It would lift what is a very plain design to a higher level.

I love reflective glass buildings too, but after reading this article I'm sort of glad we don't have so many in Adelaide: https://www.theguardian.com/environment ... ies-report

The more I see of this building, the less it is grabbing my imagination, I am hopeful the finished product does something, at the moment I see nothing exciting.

Still a big improvement from the brown, weathered piece of crap that's been dominating our skyline for almost 30 years.

Which level is the core up to ?

They're going to have to work miracles to get it finished by the end of the year.

I feel like it’s going up pretty quickly

Such a great photo Brando. Really shows the huge scale of this building to its surrounding.

with the lighter colour panels in the glass against the dark, will this building look like the godzilla version of Grenfell Tower (black stump)?

From last night - corner of Parade West/Fullarton Road

Apologies for the crappy photo quality - I was crossing the road at the time so it had to be quick! I still think it shows how the completed building will look quite prominent from this location

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
