[U/C] Re: 104-106 Currie Street | 117m | 33lvl | Sofitel Hotel

I was curious from Norman's pic whether the crane has reached the full height of the tower - looks like it may be at or around the height of the final building height now

Re: SA Economy

It isn't WA, Queensland or Tasmania consistently creating companies like Drakes or Coopers it is SA. Not sure if sarcastic? WA has national HQs for Wesfarmers, Seven West, Woodside and QLD Suncorp, BOQ, Virgin Aus etc. But sure, we have Drakes, Coopers and Shahin. I am not saying we don't have some...

I could see it coming down HBR last night. Looks ok, but I was hoping they would light up the 'crown' section in gold since it is quite prominent and would have made more sense in context with the design.

[U/C] Re: Festival Plaza Redevelopment | $800 million

While the tower itself is inoffensive it is obviously not befitting of the site. A bit of curvature would have been nice to give it a point of difference and continuity with the new casino. But at least it will block out the ugliness that has become of 1KWS and Stamford.

Nice photo should probably keep that one, it will be lost soon.
I was thinking that...it's hard to believe that it won't be visible from this (and probably it's best) angle in around 18 months time.

[VIS] Re: A new inner-city stadium is one of a raft of big ticket projects on the government's agenda this year.

Typical uninspired idea from the Marshall government in a panic attempt to create a legacy which doesn't include the decimation of our events calendar, unpopular privatization of our railways and skyrocketing unemployment. Personally I hope this goes the way of 'GlobeLink' because even if it were fe...

Re: News & Discussion: CBD Retail

Apparently there has been a wait list of retailers looking to move into Rundle Place for quite some time now. I am not sure who they are, but I don't think it will be long before the void is either filled or the centre is reconfigured to allow for a mini-major to move in.

Am I jumping the gun or has the translucent roof been replaced by what looks like shade cloth?
