I must be in the minority but I don’t mind this building. The materials will make or break it but looking forward to two 100m+ next to each other.
I agree. The problem tho is that this thing is being value managed something fierce. Cheap materials area a dead cert.

[U/C] Re: Renaissance Arcade | 132m | 40 Levels | Realm Apartments

Great shots pikey pies. It's amazing what the final result is, considering the history of proposals on the site. I remember the furor about 15 years ago when the then owner/developer tried proposing some slap up high rise that was going to be built with imported/FIFO chinese labour. Not sure whether...

Actually no if you were able to think about it laterally A Davis Cup final held in Adelaide in front of such a huge crowd as opposed to the current bandaid which seals the stadiums fate as far as a big tournament goes And Norman don't forget it's an old black and white photo So , no .

Has this been proposed/approved?
It's "in the pipeline" so probably still in the planning stage. It looks like approximately 85 metres in height.

Cheer's
Looks to me more or less the height of Vue.

This would be a big step forwards for the canyonistion of King William St.

[PRO] Re: 134-136 Wright Street | ~52m | 16 Levels | Motel

The cottages are worth saving IMO. I can't really see these being incorporated into a 16 storey development without it looking ridiculous. If they just park a fat highrise behind the older building ala the Tivoli Hotel development then I'd fuck this DA off in a heart beat. Just a note on heritage - ...

https://i.imgur.com/ZKZvegu.jpg I thought sitting on the edges of the Anfield rd stand with your head turned so you're not looking straight over the Main stand at Anfield was bad. Imagine sitting through 3 sets of a tennis match for this view of absolutely nothing but the side of a stand, lest you ...

[COM] Re: Memorial Drive upgrade

Once saw an international tennis event there some years back and being a poor student bought tickets in the far end bay in the southern stand. Struck me then what an absurd design MD was for centre court tennis. They had no qualms in selling expensive tickets for seats with a great view of everythi...

Do you think think a Timezone would work here, say over one whole floor?
I was born in the 80s, so yes
Reminds me of Downtown in Hindley Street.
Sunday mornings were for $10 lock-in at Timezone Meridian

Kids these days think a lock-in is a mobile phone contract

It needs a chance to be completed. It's like judging someone before their born aha. It might be a night owl & shoot lasers & shit ;) Sent from my SM-G935F using Tapatalk 131 metres of a 135m facade is enough to judge. The balconies on the corner look like a damned shower curtain rod. Amazingly, I t...

Here’s the trick. Get rid of the dam car park. It’s ugly, we have enough and it’s prime land for something much better.

The only hotel operators that should be shitting themselves are those with a 20+ year old product that they never bothered to refresh.
