Actually, seeing those side-by-side I think I might prefer the new look. I do miss the arches, and there's the unknown upper aspect of the new design, but it looks a little more coherent now. Either way, I hope it's serious proposal given CBD residential is soon to come to a standstill.

Someone asked on Facebook yesterday who the builder was, and whoever is running the page replied that Watpac would be. Still no development application though... all a bit strange ?

Watpac built the developer's first project in Grote St and have negotiated their spot for this one.

That’s enough to turn me off buying in that project knowing all the issues they had with Kodo. They should stick to commercial.

Actually the two rounded winged-roofs would've made this development more dated. Something out of Flash Gordon. Now it will look more like all the other apartments, so if it dates all the others will too. :lol:

Cheers

P.S. Nathan had already posted the changes back in November 2019.

I'm aware, however the top of the building wasn't visible in those photos.

My goodness, they need to fire whoever is doing their copy. They've just assembled a bunch of big sounding words together and hope to pass it off as fancy. Instead it reads as gibberish. I mean, 'unreservedly exclusive' and 'quietly unnoticed' are just a couple of many ridiculous examples.

Adelaide property companies have absolutely no idea when it comes to marketing material.

Tremendously great, big beautiful (wall) building, it's gonna be so good, make Adelaide great again.

This was approved in February.

Here's a summary of approval notes from URPS website.

"The design team for this project was led by Gasparini Luk Architects with assistance from Brown Falconer, URPS and others. A total of four design review meetings were conducted with ODASA. These meeting were tough – challenging the design team to be both clear and bold as to how this project would make a contextual civic statement for such a landmark site.

The end result was a pre-lodgement agreement from the Government Architect, Kirsteen Mackay, who stated:

“I acknowledge the significant improvements to the design that comprehensively address issues raised by the Design review panel and I support the collaborative design approach and separate peer review process undertaken by the design team. I also commend the level of contextual analysis and comprehensive presentation material, including the realistic visualisations that clearly demonstrate the design intent, the relationship of the building base to the street and the visual impact of the development from key long view perspectives…

I strongly support the project ambition for a high quality development outcome that contributes to the identity and civic quality of the Square through bold, enduring and durable architecture…”.

Pre-lodgement agreements were also issued by the Minister for Heritage’s delegate given the relationship to the Common Ground building opposite, as well as Adelaide Airport Ltd.

Now that SCAP has issued approval, stage 1 of this 16 storey mixed-use development is to be developed over the next 18 months."
