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

I hope there's some treatment in store for it (more gold sheeting?) as it's really conspicuous. Absolutely!! I’ve been waiting for this to be covered but still no sign. Sent from m...

I was walking back from the Oval today and was struck by how dark this building looked on such a bright sunny day. Maybe internal illumination will help? https://uploads.tapatalk-cdn.com/20200310/6c272d5f3ee529a7de6fc1f38c5227b3.jpg https://uploads.tapatalk-cdn.com/20200310/0f67a62251d5dd83c9507b423...

News & Discussion: Trams

I lived in Gungahlin, Canberra before moving to Adelaide which is where their new tram starts and stops.
