I'm really hopeful with this one...! Looking great so far, with the first "indent" levels now evident.

Good to see the use of perspective control. Keep it up Andy.

Looks like the crane on this tower has jumped over the weekend.

It almost certainly has - it can now be seen from East Terrace, along with the core.

Would it be possible that the painters working on this building could also use white paint on the concrete edges on the Adelaidean ?

Honestly a bit of paint would make the whole building look a lot better.

This one is turning out far better than I think anyone expected. It actually compliments Adelaidean nicely also.

Perhaps better than what you expected. Not anyone. Let's reiterate. This is definitely the best student accommodation tower so far, at least externally. Internally we'll have to wait and see. That it complements Adelaidean, you are correct Shuz, but it doesn't give Adelaidean any compliments :wink: .

This would've been a mean looking building if the external columns were black and the windows were floor to ceiling (windows mentioned by Pikey). Of course then it would blend into Adelaidean too much. You need a bit of contrast too. I would assume the columns are painted white to reflect heat and to attract some extra sunlight through the smaller windows.

I've liked this one since the first renders were released. Not really sure what anyone's problem with it was :?

What are the metal structures being installed at the upper level?

I reckon this is the first transition level, and what you're seeing is the framing for the architectural features.

That’s a great photo! Awesome to see things from this vantage point and the proximity to the pool next door.

I'm not seeing the 'infinitiy pool' that they've been promoting. Something else half arsed on Adelaidean.

Clearly see the framework now for the transition level all around the top of the build. Should be interesting to see how this bit progresses. Not sure what level we’re on now as I can never seem to find a vantage point where it can be seen.
