...Simple and elegant. The glass box seems to float over the lower stories... I agree. It looks great. I love all the glass and what looks like polished granite on the podium.

Aesthetically a great lokking building. I love the sleek glass look. A pity it does not have cantilever covers for pedestrians. I have a copy of the Adelaide City Plan fron 1975 where it speaks of developing a 'spine' of buildings along KWS. Sth. - only just catching on to their own vision 30 years...

What really gets my goat is that developers are given permission to build windows right to the edge of the site. No doubt if the adjacent land holders tried developing their land, they'd meet stiff protest from the apartment owners facing the prospect of a brick wall 2cm from the window. There are ...

[quote="AtD"]Scott: Yeah it does, they both have windows, are high-rises and are made using concrete, it's almost like it was the same person! Sarcasm........it's a beautiful thing.

Is it just me or does this whole development remind anyone else of the kind of architecture that was built in melbourne and everywhere else in the world in the 40's and 50s' as project or public housing......
