Nice shots.

But I have to say, those slats on the podium on the podium are comically bad.

This building could have been marginally better had they used highly quality glazing, flush window panels top to bottom rather than having the concrete lip on every floor, and had the slats looked more like the slat design on the building going up on Market Street.

I was thinking that the photo CMB01 posted looked closer to the renders than anything I've seen, including multiple times in person!

Wait 'til the two student towers will be completed. The ones on either side of Realm and Adelaidean. Then your silhouette will be even better.

This is deeply unimpressive at street level.

Will tehe footpath be "restored" to the original form, or will the "restoration" incorporate the plan to extend the Frome Street separated bike lane? The entrance to the car park and taxi access to the hotel was one of the "complex" things that delayed the construction of the separate bike lanes.

I can't believe how bad it looks from Dequitivlle Terrace either.

I could see into the rooms this morning, very clearly make things out in the rooms

The whole facade needs a clean, which may help things a touch. It'll be a case of "rolling it in glitter" so to speak. It's such a disappointing and underwhelming result.

I heard there may be a delay with the opening caused by problems of getting hotel furniture out of China. Their website says rooms are not available until 2 November...
