Photo from today - formwork of Wingfold Tower almost equal to full height of Uno Apartments (to the right). Main core of Sofitel continues to rise in between the two. [click on pic to enlarge]

[U/C] Re: 11 Frome Street | 135m | 37 Levels | Crowne Plaza / Adelaidean | New tallest

Fantastic. Amazing to think we had three buildings 100m+ (Westpac, Grenfell Centre and Telstra) for more or less 30 years from 1988 to 2018. With Kodo's recent completion, Adelaidean topped out and Realm presumably not far off topping out as well, we'll double our 100m+ count to six in the space of ...

Re: News & Discussion: General CBD Development

The Australia Post site was listed for sale yesterday. At just under 18,000 sqm it is the largest CBD site to be offered to the market. This is a massive opportunity for Adelaide. Hopefully there is some grand thinking by whoever the purchaser ends up being. Interesting - only yesterday an article ...

[APP] Re: 203 North Terrace | 109m | 33 levels | Student Accom

It's another bait and switch, and hardly new to the development scene (propose a tower with decent materials and design elements, get approval, then dumb down the hell out of it) but to me this is - on the face of it - exceptionally egregious. This isn't a 15 storey high student tower wedged between...

Re: News & Discussion: Low/Mid-Rise CBD Development

Tractors have been busy this week digging out the empty block next to 60 South Terrace apartments but I'm not sure what development (if any) is planned - that block seems to go by a large range of street addresses. The planning alerts for that site are two months old and talk about a 6 level apartme...

Wingfold Tower core seems to have just pipped the top of neighbouring Uno Apartments. Looks like Sofitel core (or one of them) visible in the gap between.

[PRO] Re: 108 Franklin Street | ~m | 2 x ~ Levels | Hotel and Apartments

Can't imagine these would be very tall at all given the location. I'd imagine airport height limits of whatever sort in that location would keep them well under 100m.

Re: News & Discussion: Low/Mid-Rise CBD Development

There is currently a building by FormeProjex under construction at the first site linked by EBG. I believe the most recent approval posted in this thread by Ben is their next project, which is not yet underway, but will be on the site over the side of the square which currently houses Beaurepaires.

Re: 210 Greenhill Road, Eastwood | ~24m | 7 Levels

Very thankful for the required changes on this one, particularly setbacks (they proposed none!) and the retention of the council trees. Greenhill Road does not need to look industrial. It's not a bad development otherwise.

[U/C] Re: 11 Frome Street | 135m | 37 Levels | Crowne Plaza / Adelaidean | New tallest

Given Adelaidean and Realm are fairly set back in this airport view is it likely they may not appear in line with Westpac building when completed? Or is the ground slightly higher. Have marked up a red line where I thought they may top out around. My guess is that Adelaidean will be roughly where t...

[ONH] Re: New Mayfield | 41-61m | 11-17lvls | Mixed Use

walked past this last week and there seemed to be some activity - couldn't see much due to fences but this looked hopeful (and recent!) I had the same momentary hopes when I walked past the other week until I realised (as noted by baytram366) that it was just being used in relation to the KWS upgra...

Nice to see that one of the few buildings in the CBD that is covering the concrete western wall probably didn't need to thanks to the proximity of its neighbour but a nice aesthetic touch nonetheless.
